Ready-to-Use Application Instructions:
Users of this product must determine the suitability of this product for its intended use. Do not use an airless sprayer as the pressure can atomize the product, which can prevent proper performance. Recommend wear of chemical resistant gloves, goggles and N95 mask for protection. Fire-poof is ready to use. Pre-vacuuming or cleaning may be needed prior to application. Apply to clean surface free of dust and dirt with a, “Hudson” type orchard sprayer with a fan spray tip at 40-100 PSI. Spray all exposed surfaces. Other coatings, glue, etc. can increase flame spread and must be tested as a system.
200-800 square feet per gallon depending on the fiber content and density of the item being treated. All surfaces must be free of dirt or coatings. Testing results by a trained professional will determine chemical amount and cure time if needed. May need to be applied to both sides of the textile to ensure all areas are treated with Fire-poof™.
All wood must be free from coatings such as paint, sealant or dirt. Apply 150 square feet per gallon to raw wood.
For Other Materials:
May need to be submerged until positive results have been achieved. Length of time may vary depending upon saturation capabilities.
