Flamex PF-2 protects exterior and interior woods such as: covered bridges, cedar shake roof shingles, decking, and structural lumber, etc. This product has been tested to a Class A fire rating as well as exterior durability.
Wood, which mainly consists of cellulose, lignin and hemicellulose, catches fire easily and burns vigorously with flame. As wood is used in furniture, home decoration and building materials, it will be essential to make wood products fire resistant/retardant. It is well known that materials made of wood can be treated with compounds containing nitrogen, phosphorus, halogens, and boron to improve their fire performance and accelerate the formation of a carbonized layer on the materials. National Fireproofing offers two tried, tested and trusted fire retardants for timber and cellulose products. Our fire retardants provide complete assurance if a fire situation occurs. Proven long term fire protection for interior or full exterior applications without the need for a protective coating.
After ignition and removal of the ignition source, combustion becomes self-propagating if sufficient heat is generated and is radiated back to the material to continue the decomposition process. The combustion process is governed by such variables as rate of heat generation, rate of heat transfer to the surface, surface area, and rates of decomposition.
Flameproofing, therefore, can be achieved by eliminating (or improved by retarding) any one of these variables. A flame retardant should inhibit or even suppress the combustion process. Depending on their nature, flame retardants can act chemically and/or physically in the solid, liquid or gas phases. They interfere with combustion during a particular stage of this process, i.e. during heating, decomposition, ignition or flame spread.
There are several options available. Regardless of what you have, you should be able to find something that will adequately protect it. There are a number of options you can choose from including everything from wood to steel fireproofing, thus making it possible to protect many different rooms in many different types of buildings.

When you use fire protection coatings you can protect the entire structure from fire. This can help contain a fire in one small area and prevent it from spreading to other parts of the structure. If the fire is able to move around freely, and there's nothing to stop it, then the home or business is going to be lost. The protective coating can significantly slow the fire down to prevent further damage until fire crews can arrive on scene to put out the blaze.
Many people perish in fires because there was simply not enough time for them to get out. A fire can move quickly, but with fire protection sprays and paints, the fire will move at a slower rate. This can allow people to get out of the business or the home before the fire destroys the entire structure. In a fire; you literally have only seconds to get out.
