What is this Fire Retardant Plastics Coating?

Clear fire retardant coating designed specifically for plastic and polystyrene. Intumescent clear coat that forms a thick layer of char that protects the substrate. This is one of the only clear-coats that has been successfully tested on plastic and polystyrene. Effective on plastic, PVC, Styrofoam, polyurethane foam and more. Comes with documentation for fire marshal.

Appendix 2 and ASTM F1173-95 Section A5.
Also passed NFPA 701 test on 3/4" Styrofoam (painted and unpainted).

ASTM E84 Expanded Polystyrene - 0 flame spread 100 smoke dev index 
ASTM E84 Extended 1" EPS Panel

FPCC is an intumescent clear coat, which can go over the top of painted or sealed surfaces. Creates a thick layer of char when exposed to flame, protecting the substrate.
All surfaces to be treated must be clean and dry. FPCC is water based, clear liquid that becomes insoluble when dry. If over-coating is intended, FPCC is an excellent primer for use under or over latex paints. Does not lose effectiveness if painted over. DO NOT DILUTE OR MIX WITH ANY OTHER PRODUCTS. May be applied with sprayer, airless, brush or roller. Be sure to allow drying between coats.

For plastics, a
pply three (3) coats at 1050 sq. ft.per gallon with the final coverage rate of 350 sq. ft. per gallon

For styrofoam, polyurethane foam or polystyrene, a
pply three (3) coats at 600 sq. ft. per gallon with the final coverage rate of
200 sq. ft. per gallon


Plastics vary depending on type and manufacturing process. You may need to scuff the surface to give it some 'tooth' for the coating to adhere. Sometimes, an adhesion promoter may need to be used.These are easily available in auto parts stores. You may need to apply a misted or 'flash' coat, so that it is just tiny little droplets that the second coat can adhere better. Often, multiple light coats will work better than a single thick coat. Due to its hygroscopic nature, if a single coating is too thick, it will have trouble drying, and may slough off.
