The general manager of the MVL Group subsidiary told Construction Week that the company provided the kingdom's Hajj authority with a fire-retardant coating
Abstract The protective effects of a topcoat on an intumescent fire-retardant coating
were studied under hydrochloric acid solution corrosion, accelerated UV aging and natural weathering.
We coated a composite with 38 [cm.sup.2] of surface size with fire-retardant coating
. The amount of fire-retardant coating
on the composite varied from 0.5 g to 3 g.
When a forest or brushland wildfire threatens to engulf nearby neighborhoods, some homeowners might opt to quickly spray the entire exterior of their house with a temporary fire-retardant coating
. Now, a team of Agricultural Research Service scientists in California--one of America's most wildfire-prone states--has shown that an experimental fire-retardant gel made of sodium bentonite clay, cornstarch, and water may offer better, more affordable protection than gels made from other compounds.
TRELLEBORG INDUSTRIAL SOLUTIONS has launched DragonCoat, its new fire-retardant coating

Fire-retardant and smoke-suppressant performance of an intumescent waterborne amino-resin fire-retardant coating
According to Boeing the fire-retardant coating
on the fibreglass insulation blankets degrades with age but the FAA claims that tests do not indicate that age is a factor.
Moreover, an intumescent coating, according to SSPC's definition, is "a fire-retardant coating
that when heated forms a foam produced by nonflammable gases, such as carbon dioxide and ammonia.
