Firefree 88 OVERVIEW

Firefree 88 ("FF88") is a premium quality water based, non toxic, thin film intumescent fire retardant and resistant paint fully tested to provide fire ratings required by the International Building Code for wall assemblies, floor/ceilings assemblies, roof ceiling assemblies and individual structural members.

Cost efficient

Firefree 88 is cost efficient: as a result of its' superior fire resistant performance, only a relatively thin layer of FF88 will be required. As a result, FF88 provides significant material and labor cost reductions (savings of 30 to 70% and above) when compared to other options in situations such as retrofit and historical upgrades, defective construction, new construction or transportation.

Fully tested and certified

FF88 has been tested to multiple standards worldwide, including ASTM E119 (1 and 2 hours), FM 4975, ASTM E 662-97, ASTM E 3675-98, ASTM E 162-98, ASTM E 1354-94, ASTM E 814, ASTM E84, Room Corner Test including UBC 8-2, NFPA 286, UBC 26-3 (Part 1 of FM Class 4880), BS 476 in England, AS 1530.3, 1530.4, in Australia, EN 13501 in Poland, and SISIR door test standards in Singapore. Ff88 is listed and labeled by FM Approvals, listed and inspected by ICC, classified by UL and accepted by NY MEA.

High performance

FF88 is the first coating to bring a true fire barrier to a wide variety of materials and assemblies FF88 has been shown to withstand temperatures of up to 1093° Celsius for up to two hours. As a result, FF88 provides a high level of fire protection which assists in (i) containing the fire to its room of origin, (ii) limiting smoke propagation and (iii) preserving structural integrity.

Easy to use and apply

Firefree 88 is easy to use. FF88 is a high quality, non-toxic, water based resistant (matte) paint with a smooth architectural grade finish (white, flat), excellent adhesion and durability. It is easy to apply by brush, roller or sprayer. In most cases, FF88 will be self-priming, thus resulting in additional cost savings. It is non-toxic, has low odor and may be tinted.


Our products are safe and eco-friendly. They have has low VOCs (<36gr/liter) which is extremely low compared to the current EFP regulations of 250gr/liter (per ASTM 3960). It is even significantly below California’s limit of 50gr/liter. This confirms that they are non-flammable, non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Additionally Firefree 88 qualifies for LEED v4, is Green Categorized under FM Approvals and meets Green Standards Performance under MPI GPS-01 and GPS-02.

Usable on multiple substrates / assemblies

FF88 can be applied to most substrates used in the construction and transportation industries including wood, gypsum board (sheetrock, plasterboard), lathe and plaster, concrete, masonry, embossed/pressed metal tin, thin gauge metal, galvanized steel and aluminum, spray polyurethane foam (SPF), fiberglass, carbon fiber, plastics and other composite materials. Ff88 can be used in exterior applications if covered by the Firefree Exterior Topcoat ("FfE").
