Fire-retardant topcoat

TEKNOSAFE FLAME PROTECT 2478-00 is a water-borne fire-retardant topcoat for interior solid wood panelling and cladding, and wood-based panels. Substrate: Solid wood or wood-based panels with thickness > 8 mm and density ≥ 338 kg/m³ when taken in conjunction with the relevant fire classification report.

Used as an industrial fire-retardant topcoat as part of a system called Teknos FR Panel with TEKNOSAFE FLAME GUARD 2477-00 to improve “reaction to fire” (EN 13501-1) of interior wooden surfaces - see https://www.teknos.com/products/teknosafe-flame-protect-2478-00/. 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 according to B-s1, d0 EN 13501-1 (SBI test) as part of the Teknos FR panel system. Durability classes of reaction to fire performance, of fire-retardant wood-based product in end use applications according to EN 16755 - DRF class INT1 and INT2. A+ Émissions l'air intérieur: When used in an industrial setting.

Surface preparation

The wood must be free from wood dust and contamination. The moisture content of the wood should be approx. 10% and should not exceed 12%.

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.


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