Water-based and nontoxic, this intumescent coating is applied just like standard paints. FireGuard E-84 can be applied by rolling, brushing, or spraying. As little as two coats can create a fire-rated wall for your structure.

If you need to topcoat over the E84 paint for aesthetics or color matching, you will need to apply a coat of 'Z Tie-Coat' prior to the topcoat. The tie-coat improves adhesion and prevents the topcoat from delaminating. Call for pricing.

NOTE: The manufacturer (Shield Industries) sometimes asks us to submit a few details on each customer's project, just to to make sure the product is correct. We may ask you to fill out a short 1-page form via email. Because these paints are not returnable, this makes for happier people all around.
