Fire Retardant Spray
Fire Retardant Spray
1948 RJ Beverwijk
Our Fire Retardant Spray is a user-friendly and flame retardant impregnating agent suitable for impregnating natural materials such as bamboo, cane, straw and palm leaf. The Fire Retardant Spray is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
After proper impregnation, the above materials can potentially meet EN1187 B roof (T1) standard or can potentially meet fire class C. Products treated with Fire Retardant Spray will be protected for 3 to 5 years. This depends on the surface being treated and the method of treatment.
Our Fire Retardant Spray consists of an aqueous solution of organic and inorganic salts. It is not harmful to the environment and consists of degradable substances. It is colorless and odorless.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Use personal protective equipment such as a mouth mask, gloves and safety glasses when applying the Fire Retardant Spray. Make sure the ambient temperature is at least 5°C. Cover the surrounding area, such as the floor, with a cloth or foil. Make sure the surface is clean, grease-free and dry. Ensure good ventilation.
We recommend shaking the Fire Retardant Spray intensively before use. Keep a distance of 20 to 30 cm and spray the product to be treated until it feels well moistened. In case of excess, you can wipe it off with a cloth or sponge. Residues can be removed immediately with warm water before the product has dried. You can treat about 4 to 5 m² per bottle, depending on the absorbency of the material to be treated.
When you are finished with the Fire Retardant Spray, it is important that you wipe white out material with a damp cloth. Wash your hands after use as well. Fire Retardant Spray should soak in and dry for 5 hours under dry conditions.
Store Fire Retardant Spray in a tightly closed container. Product is potentially irritating to eyes and skin and harmful if ingested by mouth. In case of spillage or contact, flush with water.
With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
More about Bamboo
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
