Fire Retardants

We have formulated a low VOC Oil Acrylic Fire Retardant Stain. Available in a vast range of transparent colours, it is easily applied to raw timbers.

When maintenance of the timber is required each additional coat is providing more protection. This product works in several ways including the promotion of char formation and to control ignition and flame spread across a wooden surface and to lower the rate of heat and smoke release from the wood based substrate.

Tested to AS/NZS 1530.3 – 1999

Test #: 7-567054-CV

Spread of Flame Index 4

Heat Evolved Index 5
