BURN BARRIER™ 111/FTP-26 FLAT BLACK INTUMESCENT FIRE RETARDANT PAINT

Product Description:
Burn Barrier™ No. 111 Black Fire Retardant Paint is manufactured in accordance with Federal
Specification TTP-26C. It is designed for use on interior surfaces. The coating dries quickly to
a velvety flat black finish, having the appearance of a conventional paint. Upon exposure to fire, Burn
Barrier™ No. 111 puffs up (intumesces), forming a dense cellular foam layer. This layer greatly
reduces the surface burning characteristics of combustible materials, and retards the penetration of heat
to metal surfaces.

Surface Preparation:
Surface preparation should be carried out according to good painting practices. All dirt, grease, oil,
wax, rust, and other foreign matter must be removed.

New Surfaces:
New wood, fiberboard, and other surfaces having uneven or excessive porosity should
be sealed with Burn Barrier™ No. 300l Alkyd Primer, and allowed to dry a minimum of 16 hours
before applying No. 111. New drywall, plaster, and masonry surfaces should be internally dry and
cured. Prime with Burn Barrier™ No. 3003 Acrylic Primer, and allow to dry overnight before
applying No. 111. New metal surfaces must be primed. Apply Burn Barrier™ No. 3004 Universal
Primer or Burn Barrier™ No. 3005 Two-Component Epoxy Primer. Allow to dry 16 hours or until
hard, before applying No. 111.

Previously Painted Surfaces:
No. 111 may be applied directly to existing paint that is tightly
adherent and in good condition. All glossy surfaces should be dulled with sandpaper. Spot prime where
necessary with appropriate Burn Barrier™ primers as shown above, before application of No. 111.

Application:
(Burn Barrier™ No. 111 is ready to use. It can be applied by brush, roller, airless or conventional
heavy-duty spray equipment. Stir thoroughly and apply, using a full-bodied coat. If thinning is
required, use only Rule 66 Mineral Spirits.

Suggested Coverage Rate:
180 sq.ft./U.S. gallon (215 sq.ft./Imp. gallon) in one or two coats.

overcoating.
