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 4.3 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Coverage less than expected. Hopefully I'll never know how well this stuff stops fire. I just need to trust the technical specs. Coverage was less than expected. Had to buy a second 5 gallon Pail. At $350 for a bucket, it was a big budget overrun. December 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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!! May 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product Needed a 2 hour rating. Good product.... easy to apply. July 9, 2013
