  BROFLAME - INTUMESCENT COATING FOR SOLID TIMBER, TIMBER-FACED AND PARTICLE BOARDS
   
  Decorative thin film intumescent coating for solid timber, timber-faced and particle boards to provide Class 1 and Class 0 to BS 476 Parts 6 & 7.
   
 

One of a comprehensive range of colourful fire protective coatings which enables the designer to maintain the overall decorative theme yet satisfying today’s building regulations for fire protection.

Broflame is a white intumescent fire protection system for timber, timber-faced boards and particle boards. Broflame may also be used to upgrade otherwise flammable substrates including previously painted surfaces.

Broflame’s thin-film white base coat provides the fire protection required.The system is completed by overcoating with Flameguard Top Seal for Intumescents.

   
  Applications
   
 

Internal use on new blockboard, hardboard, chipboard, plywood, softwood and MDF for Class 1 and Class 0 fire protection.

Upgrading existing materials in public buildings, schools, hotels, etc. to provide Class 1 and Class 0 protection in accordance with BS 476 Parts 6 and 7.

Previously painted surfaces, walls, ceilings, timber linings and particle boards to provide a Class 1 and Class 0 fire protection.

Protection
In a fire, Broflame softens and expands to form a carbon foam layer which insulates and protects the substrate from the effects of the fire.

Flameguard Top Seal
The use of Broflame enables the designer to use timber linings in any area of a building for walls, ceilings or partitions.The decorative theme is then maintained by overcoating with Flameguard Top Seal for Intumescents, which is available in an almost unlimited colour range from our inhouse tinting system.

   
  How to Apply Broflame Thin Film Intumescent Protection
   
 

Surface Preparation
New surfaces must be clean and dry. Knot and stop as necessary. Oil or emulsion painted surfaces must be rubbed down to provide a key, ensuring a clean, dry surface. Existing paint films must be adhering firmly - if in any doubt, remove all existing coatings.

Method of Application
Normally applied by brush or airless spray. Broflame must not be thinned. It is imperative that the loadings specified in the appropriate test certificate are observed.The required loadings can be applied in one airless spray coat.

Airless Spray Application
Use a pump such as a Graco Ultra Max 1095 or equivalent. A 30 mesh filter is recommended. Use a tip size of 0.48-0.73mm (0.019-0.029”) and tip pressure 243kg/cm3 (3500psi).The internal diameter of the material hose should be 9.5mm (0.375”).

For technical advice and spray unit hire/sales contact Bollom Finishing Equipment on (020) 8658 2299.

Brush Application
Apply an even coat taking care to avoid runs or sags using a good quality brush.To achieve the required thickness a minimum of two brush coats will be required with 4-12 hours between coats.

Site Preparation
Throughout the period of application and drying, ambient temperatures should lie between 5-35ºC, relative humidity below 75% and the surface temperature between 5-35ºC.

   
  How to Specify Broflame Intumescent Coating
   
 

For Class 1/Class 0 Fire Protection
Ensure that all surfaces are clean and dry. Knot and stop as necessary.Apply Broflame to a total wet loading shown in the Application Data Guide.

For Class 1/Class 0 Fire Protection on Previously Painted Surfaces
Ensure that existing paint films are adhering firmly. If in doubt, remove all existing coatings. Rub down to provide a key and ensure a clean, dry surface.

  Application Notes for Intulac Ultra Intumescent Base Coat
   
 

Brush and Roller: Apply an even coat taking care to avoid runs and sags using a good quality brush or roller.

Conventional Spray: Material should be heated to a maximum of 70ºC in a water bath or heating cabinet. Ensure that the lid is
loosened first. Needle and nozzle to be made with V2A steel. Nozzle size 1.5mm (0.059”). Container pressure 1-2 bar (14-29psi). Viscosity to be adjusted by heating to 20 seconds ISO 4 flow cup.

Notes: Intulac Ultra is designed for internal use only. Do not apply when relative humidity exceeds 70% and condensation is likely. Drying will be retarded below 10ºC and application should be stopped until temperature rises.

Further Notes:
Intumescent coatings are damaged by water vapour (high humidity) and require protection. If light surface bloom or minor surface damage occurs, Intulac Ultra overcoated with Intulac Ultra Top Coat Varnish can be wiped down with a damp cloth and then dried immediately. Badly soiled surfaces have to be refinished by wiping over with a cloth wetted in Thinners 1000 to remove stubborn marks, then overcoated with Intulac Ultra Top Coat Varnish. In the event that major blooming or crazing of the basecoat occurs the whole system should be removed by using No.23 Degreasing/Dewaxing Solution and abrasive pads.The full Intulac Ultra system should then be re-applied.

  FLAMEGUARD - FLAME RETARDANT PAINT FOR STEEL (SOLVENT BASED TOP COAT)
   
 

A comprehensive range of flame retardant paints which enables the designer to maintain the overalldecorative theme yet satisfy today’s building regulations for fire protection.

Flameguard paints are formulated to be as easy to use as conventional paints providing a high quality durable finish.

Conventional paint systems, when subjected to high temperatures, will break down and encourage fire spread. However, when the substrate is treated with Flameguard paints, fire spread is severely checked or even prevented.
