FireSkin 1K

Available in stock

Quick Overview

FireSkin™ 1K is a high temperature waterborne intumescent fire-resistant barrier coating that will withstand direct flame contact. It does not emit continuous smoke with E84 testing yielding 5=flame spread and 70=smoke during flame exposure. It is environmentally friendly and is used in demanding fire shielding applications such as mine safety, protecting steel frameworks, building foam insulation, utility poles, cedar shake roofs, styrene and polyurethane foam board and other flammable material protection. Designers also use this material’s unique decorative coating properties to enhance interior walls specified by fire-retardant requirements as acrylic texture chips may be added. 1K FireSkin also provides outstanding UV stability.

It is a water-based formulation that is applied by low pressure air-less spray equipment, roller or brush. It is non-toxic and and may be appled in low-ventilated enclosed areas. Please call or email our Technical Support Group for any questions regarding material, application or prospective uses.

GlowSkin is capable of being added to Fireskin 1K.

Technical Application Data

FireSkin 1K is a single component spray formulation which does not contain VOCs. This material may be used directly on foam, wood, textiles, masonry, wallboard, metal, etc. It does not normally require the use of primers on most substrates to obtain proper adhesion. Material must stirred thoroughly prior to use. All surfaces must be clean and free of contaminates. Application temperature ranges from 50°F to 110°F. Tack free time is 30 min at 75°F with full cure in 24 hours. Re-coat time is normally 20-30 min. Functional operating temperature ranges from -40°F to 1500°F. Application film thickness dependent on barrier requirement but typically 20-30 mils per coat. Subsequent coats may be applied after the first coat is fully dry. Fire rating is 1 hr rating per 60 mils. Coverage is 100 sq.ft./gal.

Substrate Surface Preparation

Preparation of substrate surface prior to the application of any SuperSkinSystem coating system is extremely important as substrate adhesion is imperative.

For dirty or greasy substrates, power clean with mild detergent or grease wax remover prior to any sanding or grinding operation. Abraid surface slightly using fine sandpaper or scotch-brite pad. Metals susceptible to corrosion must use a cathodic primer first to seal metal and provide for proper bonding. Call TechSupport Group for assistance with using a SSS application system. Also read the Application Page on this website. If patching concrete, use our mineral filled fast-set Acrylic Modified Epoxy applied by trowel. For expansion joints, use Joist Seal applied by hand cartridge dispensing gun. It is always best to perform a test area section of the SSS application system prior to full scale engagement.
