Used as an industrial fire-retardant topcoat as part of a system called Teknos FR Façade with TEKNOSAFE 2407-00 to improve “reaction to fire” (EN 13501-1) of weathered wooden surfaces - see https://www.teknos.com/products/teknosafe-flame-protect-2408-00/. Before using the product, Teknos should be contacted to check the suitability of the product for the object in question. Fire-retardant performance has been classified B-s1, d0 / B-s2, d0 according to EN 13501-1 (SBI test) as part of the Teknos FR Façade system. Durability classes of reaction to fire performance of fire-retardant wooden façade product treated with Teknos FR Façade opaque in end use applications according to EN16755 DRF class EXT. Teknos FR Façade opaque holds classification according to SP Fire105 and fire resistance K₁10 and K₂10.

Surface preparation

The wood must be free from wood dust and contamination. The moisture content of the wood should not exceed 18%.

Application conditions

The temperature of the air, the surface and the paint shall be above +10°C and the relative humidity of the air below 80% during the time of application and drying. The best result is achieved when the temperature of the air is between +23°C and +38°C, the relative humidity of the air is 50-70% and the ventilation good. Stir the paint thoroughly before use, preferably using mechanical stirring. After on-site cutting the specified loading rate must be re-instated. For all coated solid wood or wood-based panels, a non-marking protective layer of minimum 1.5 mm thickness (e.g., polyethylene film) is recommended to be used between coated surfaces.


The best storage temperature is +10°C - +25°C. Must not freeze.
