A durable, waterproof, fire-retardant coating that forms both an ignition barrier and a thermal barrier
Andek Firegard is a durable, waterproof, fire-retardant coating that forms both an ignition barrier and a thermal barrier. When exposed to fire, Andek Firegard expands to many times its original thickness. This generates a thermal insulating layer that protects the substrate from auto-ignition. In addition to its exceptional fire retardant properties Firegard is an extremely durable coating that waterproofs the coated surface. It withstands exposure to harsh outdoor weather and may be repeatedly washed without damage.
Andek Firegard may be used over all types of insulation, polyurethane foam, wood, wood composites, concrete, stucco, mineral composites, EIFS, bricks, masonry and other approved surfaces on the interior and exterior of buildings. This exceptional coating has been in constant use for over 30 years, protecting attics, crawl spaces, ducts, pipes, tanks, wooden structures, building components, boilers, and freezers in all types of climates.
Firegard is listed by the Asbestos Information Center and the United States Government as an ideal sealant for encapsulation of low density asbestos lagging and asbestos insulation.
