How & Why FireGuard®
The key to
FireGuard’s® ability to retard flames is its organic
ammonium salt formulation. When exposed to flames or
intense heat, an acidic catalysis occurs resulting in the
formation of an inert gas that blankets the surface.
Because of this blanket, there is no oxygen available at
the surface and flames cannot form.
should only be used on water-safe fabrics and surfaces.
If uncertainty exists, always test for suitability by
applying the product to a small inconspicuous area of the
item and wiping with a white cloth.
results, apply to clean, dry surfaces. FireGuard®
can be applied either by spraying or dipping. When
sprayed, it should be applied at a rate of 200 to 500
square feet per gallon of FireGuard® , depending
upon the texture of the surface being treated. More
absorbent surfaces will require heavier coverage. Cleaning
or laundering treated surfaces may remove or dilute the
treatment. To assure that items remain flame retardant,
FireGuard® should be reapplied after cleaning.
Over-spray or spills can be easily cleaned with gentle
detergent and water.
