FIREFREE 88 TECHNICAL

Firefree 88 can be used to provide the fire resistance ratings of elements in construction, transportation and insulation. FF88 has been tested to meet ASTM E 119 (1 & 2 hour). In addition, FF88 has also been tested to multiple standards worldwide (US, Australia (CSIRO, UK, Europe, Singapore…) including ASTM E 119 (1 and 2 hours), FM 4975, ASTM E 662-97, ASTM E 3675-98, ASTM E 162-98, ASTM E 1354-94, ASTM E 814, ASTM E 84, Room Corner Test (including UBC 8-2, NFPA 286, UBC 26-3), BS 476, AS 1530.3, 1530.4, and EN 13501.

Fire Safety. For various reasons, including (i) the very different circumstances that may exist from one fire to another, (ii) the differences between conditions in an actual fire and laboratory conditions in which testing is conducted, and (iii) the inherent variability of fire tests, passing a laboratory test or certifying/labeling Ff88 for use in specific assemblies/systems does not mean that the same application of Ff88 will necessarily provide an equivalent protection or the same result in an actual fire or in a new laboratory test. Furthermore, Ff88 is to be used only as a component of complete fire retardation systems for the whole structure. It will only contribute to slowing fire spread for the area where it has been applied and will not, by itself, prevent a fire from starting or continuing. The amount by which Ff88 retards a particular fire will depend, among other things, on (i) the amount of Ff88 applied, (ii) the conditions of the other elements of the assembly incorporating Ff88, and (iii) the conditions of the actual fire itself. Ff88 will not make a fire any less dangerous to persons or property. Firefree cannot guarantee that loss or injury will not be suffered by persons or property. It is the sole responsibility of the applicator to ensure that Ff88 has been applied in accordance with the application directions. It is the responsibility of the occupier to ensure the paint is not cracked, chipped or peeling.
