Fire retardant coating systems

During the fire intumescent paint swells to form a protective foam layer, which partially uses energy during foaming and partially insulates the underlying wood from fire. If the fire lasts, the wood turns to charcoal, but without igniting.

Architectonic freedom and safety with fire-retardant coatings

TEKNOS FR FACADE is a fire-retardant coating system for interior and exterior use. It is suitable for timber cladding, panels, ceilings, boards etc. It allows to use wood in those projects, where it previously was forbidden for fire safety reasons -  in built-up areas and on tall buildings.
TEKNOS FR PANEL is a fire-retardant coating system for non-weathered colourless wood and wood-based surfaces.

Coating systems and classification 

Basically the fire regulation is about that people should able to leave the building before fire spreads out. Construction products and building elements are classified according to their characteristics with reference to reaction to fire and / or resistance to fire.

TEKNOS FR FACADE for exterior use 
Fire-retardant primer  TEKNOSAFE 2407 350 g/m2
Intermediate treatment NORDICA EKO 3330 150 g/m2
Final treatment NORDICA EKO HOUSE PAINT  application on-site with brush

Classification B-s1, d0 according to EN13501-1
B-s1,d0  is the best reaction to fire classification for organic materials: (difficult to ignite, no / hardly any smoke production, no flaming droplets)

Classification K110 and K210 according to EN13501-2
The fire protection ability K is the ability of a wall or ceiling covering to provide for the material behind the covering protection against ignition, charring and other damage for a specified period of time.

Classification DRF Class EXT  (Durability of Reaction to Fire Performance) for exterior applications according to NT Fire 054 

Classification SP Fire 105: approved


 TEKNOS FR FACADE for interior use 
Fire-retardant primer TEKNOSAFE 2407 250 g/m2

We have a wealth of experience in industrial fire retardation for normally flammable materials. We evaluate the material to be treated and then suggest how this can be achieved. This entails selecting a fire-retardant solution, technical application, conforming to regulations, testing, quality assurance systems, certification, training and project management.

TEKNOS FR coating system in SP Fire 105 test: performed on fasade coverings and external walls where a room fire is simulated.

TEKNOS FR coatings in Single Burning Item (SBI) test, where building products are exposed to thermal heat from a gas burner.

An experiment: small wooden house was coated on one half with a normal coating system and on the other half with TEKNOSAFE 2407-00.
