Inherently non-combustible surfaces such as plasterboard, concrete and brick can become a potential fire hazard due to repeated redecoration with conventional paints.
In a fire thick layers of old different types of paint or wallpaper tend to de-laminate, rapidly catching and spreading fire, smoke and toxic gasses around the building.
Flame retardant paints which emit toxic Antimony-based gasses in a fire have been applied to many buildings.
1 coat Thermoguard Wallcoat and 1 coat Wallcoat SFR Smoke & Flame Retardant effectively controls flame spread, smoke and toxic gas any type, number and combination of antimony-based and other wall paints or wallpaper.
