Fire retardant X-238 was tested by both U.S. Testing Company and DST Laboratories. It received a flame spread classification of 40, and a flame spread rating of Class A and Class B under ASTM E-84 standards by U.S. Testing Company. DST Laboratories tested exposure to UV rays and proved that it would survive over two years of exterior weathering while still boasting superior fire resistance a minimum of 96% of the time.
Fire Retardant X-238 should be mixed thoroughly prior to application. Surfaces receiving treatment should be cleansed, dry and free of dirt, dust and oils before application. Fire Retardant X-238 can be applied by dipping, rolling or spraying. If spraying, then we recommend a heavy-duty sprayer with a 315 flat contractors tip and a 6-inch fan.
