BURN BARRIER™ EFR-5 EXTERIOR FLAME RETARDER FOR FABRIC

Product Description:
Exterior Flame Retarder for fabric is a specially formulated solvent-based compound,
designed to retard the burning of fabrics which are exposed to weather. It may not leach out,
even when exposed to a continuous hose stream. It is recommended for use on welding
curtains, canopies, dividers, awnings and tents. Properly treated materials will meet
the requirements of NFPA 701. Treated materials will be water repellent as well.

Application:
Stir and mix thoroughly before applying. Flame Retarder may be applied by brush, spray
or dipping. In all cases, fabric should be completely saturated.
Flame tests should be conducted on small dry sample pieces of identical fabric, treated
at the same time, to insure that proper flame protection has been provided. In some cases,
it may be necessary to apply a second application to obtain the desired flame retardancy.
Treated fabrics will be stiffer than untreated fabrics. Dark fabrics will show discoloration in the
form of whiting. To overcome whiting on dark fabrics, small amounts of universal paint
colorants (2 oz. max. per gallon) maybe added to tint material to approximate color of
fabric.

Coverage:
One gallon will treat approximately 450 ounces of cotton duck material.

Clean-up:
Tools and equipment should be thoroughly cleaned using Xylol or (Exxon Aromatic SC-100
solvents.

Packaging:
1 gallon (4 per carton), 5 gallon pails and 55 gallon drums.
