Tips for Applying to Construction Projects
- You can use nearly any type of applicator - garden sprayer,
backpack sprayer, commercial sprayer, paint sprayer, brush, roller,
- When using sprayer, a fan nozzle works well because it gives
even coverage and is easy to see, and little is lost to wind.
- Construction: Fire'z Off may applied at the lumberyard, to create
Fire Retardant Treated (FRT) Wood. Normally, FRT wood can command
a 50-100% premium over regular wood, but Fire'z Off adds just
pennies per foot to the cost.
- Construction: Fire'z Off may also be applied on site. Because
it is non-toxic, no respirators are necessary, but you may want
to use goggles and a simple mask. It's not toxic or irritating,
but it doesn't taste good.
- When applying with a sprayer, always use smooth, even strokes,
and try not to overlap too much. A second application may be necessary
depending on the material being treated. Testing a small sample
is always advised.
- One quart will treat approximately 100 square feet. One gallon
will treat 400-500 square feet. Five gallons will treat 2000-2500
- You need to get the material WET - a light misting usually isn't
- Construction: we offer Fire'z Off in a green tint for construction
projects using wood. This makes it a little easier to see where
you have already treated, and leaves a light green sheen when
dry. You have to be looking for it to really notice it.
- Always keep in mind the surface that you are treating, and
adjust your application accordingly.
- Weight and thickness
- Natural vs. synthetic
- Naturally occurring oils, like cedar shakes
- Fire risk/exposure
- When applying to new roof deck, apply to underside before laying
down. If applying to existing roof deck, go ahead and spray the
top side - it will soak in. You can lay the felt down immediately
after application. It dries quickly and discourages mold growth.
Working with Varnishes and Sealers - Fire'z Off is a solution
of several different powders and agents in a water-based solution.
When using Fire'z Off on outside wood directly exposed to the elements,
it can lose effectiveness in one-to three years, requiring retreatment.
Using a sealer, especially on outside wood, can greatly enhance
the longevity of the retardant.When spraying untreated wood, allow
to completely dry, then apply sealer, like Thompson's Water Seal.
On interior woods, it can be a little tricky when using an acrylic
sealer, so be sure to test your process on an out-of-the-way area
first. Fire'z Off may 'bloom' or whiten when covered with acrylic
sealer. But this can be avoided. The recommended procedure is to
treat the wood with Fire'z Off, allow to dry, and wipe the surface
with a damp towel to remove any surface residue. Allow to dry, then
apply your sealer.
This does not appear to happen with regular solvent-based
stains and varnishes, only with acrylics.
Wiping with a damp towel does not lessen its effectiveness, because
Fire'z Off soaks into the wood and bonds with the fibers.
