Product Overview

FireGuard E-84 is a superior intumescent fire retardant coating that creates a thin fire retardant and fire resistant barrier on a wide range of interior building surfaces. In the event of a fire, this product can prevent the spread of flames and reduce smoke levels to aid in the protection of life and property. When FireGuard E-84 Intumescent Paint is exposed to heat generated by flames, it swells to form an insulating char barrier that fire cannot penetrate. Without a source of fuel, the fire is unable to spread. In addition to protecting from flame, this char barrier functions as an insulating blanket to help protect the underlying substrate from the intense heat of a fire. This can postpone or even prevent ignition for up to two hours (ASTM E-119). Beyond preventing the spread of flames, FireGuard E-84 can reduce the production of smoke a leading cause of fire related fatalities.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mis-leading information, not properly rated for steel The manufacturer claims that this product can be used for 1 and 2 hour ratings on steel, this is not true, check with your local building official. Any product used as a fireproofing for steel framed buildings (requiring an hourly rating by the building code) has to be tested in a full-scale burn test by a certified lab using various steel sizes, fireproofing is not a one thickness for all steel sizes, each different sized member has to be tested individually to determine the correct hourly rating.

Only down fall was the final paint and wallpaper adhesion to painted surface, would suggest good primer coat as possible solution. We decided since its meant to repel fire guess it repels paint too

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to apply Though I have not tested the fire capabilities, this paint is extremely easy to apply, very little odor, easy to mix. I used it to cover Foamular 250 that is installed in my basement for insulation. This is a much more cost effective option than sheet rock and certainly less toxic that spray foam insulation with an intumescent paint that requires vacating the premises for 24 hours. Only down sides are the paint containers weigh over 60 pounds and the paint is very expensive. But, I recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to paint over I purchased this product to paint over the drywall in some rooms I was remodeling to try and make our home that much more safe. Everything I read said you could paint over it and it would work like a primer. Wrong. You can't roller over it like you would normally paint a wall because the paint won't stick to it. The moment you roller back over the same spot it peels off. We called the company and the rep said we can't paint over it. They suggested a spray gun might work, but rollers are a no go. Luckily we tested it in a closet. We ended up putting many very light coats over it in single roll at a time. The rest of the bucket won't go to waste. We will be using the rest of it the attic where we aren't a painting over. So, we won't be out the money, but weren't able to use it for our intended purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Coverage per square foot isn't the best, considering to get the fire protection they advertise it will take 2-3 coats at least with a roller. Coverage isn't the same for all material's either. Drywall only needs around 10mils of dry thickness while OSB needs 30 mils. Overall though it is cheap fire insurance to help stop spread of fire. I used about 4.5 gallons to cover the ceiling of a 25' x 28' garage with OSB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved THOUSANDS of $$$ and Passed Code This product saved me from having to spend thousands of dollars in costruction costs! The building inspector wanted me to increase the fire rating on a wall in my building. Rather than adding exspensive fire rated building materials (not to mention the labor), I was able to paint on this product and achieve a 1 hour fire rating! Very easy to use!!
