Flame Retardant Intumescant Coating for Foam

Product Description: 

PC-201 provides effective flexible fire retardancy for polyurethane, polyester and polyethylene foams and other cushioning materials.  PC-201 will not affect the resiliency of the foam or padding material.  Additional tests have shown that the treated surfaces have improved resistance to oxidation and other forms of chemical deterioration; therefore, better life can be expected from materials treated with PC-201.  Due to various foams on the market, users must perform their own testing to comply with the specific code required by the fire code.
