Can also be added to clear water-based polyurethane coatings.
FS3 Paint Additive is one of the most unique fire retardants available on the market today! It's for use with latex based paints. We recommend a compatibility test before using on a large scale. It requires no seal coat or pre-coat as do most other fire retardant paint systems. It has an indefinite shelf life and since it is not premixed with the paint, it allows for an unlimited selection of colors and an extensive choice of paint brands. Just one application of FS3 Paint Additive will provide a Class A fire rating. The mixture is 16 ounces of FS3 Paint Additive (as it comes in the container) per 1 gallon of paint. Just mix thoroughly and apply according to the instructions of the paint manufacturer. In most cases, the mixture will become thicker than desired and will require approximately 1-2 pint of water to be added to thin it, therefore, it can be said that FS3 Paint Additive is also useful as a paint extender. If FS3 Paint Additive has been stored in a cool area (less than 60 degrees Fahrenheit), it may be necessary to pour hot tap water over the FS3 Paint Additive container in order to facilitate the mixing

Due to variances in paints, it is recommended that a test be performed utilizing a gallon of latex-based paint, one pint of Flame Stop III, and adding sufficient water to arrive at an acceptable viscosity. Some paints contain a high level of hydrocarbons which will cause the mixture to coagulate or curdle.
