BURN BARRIER™ – X FIRE RETARDANT FOR CHRISTMAS TREES
AND SEVERAL OTHER NATURAL FIBERS
BURN BARRIER™ – X is a clear plastic fire retardant coating; transparent, odorless, and
non-toxic. For flamability and interior use only. Fire retardants are intended to reduce the rate
of flame spread and DOES NOT imply “flame proof” retarding.
It is approved by the California State Fire Marshal for flame retarding Christmas trees, foliage,
raffia, matting, rattan, cardboard, corrugated paper, sisal, barker cloth, dry grass, sea oats
and polystyrene foam (not for redwood). Application:
For flame retarding Christmas trees, use full strength. Use a good paint spray gun or Hudson
all-purpose household sprayer. If solution is too cold, it may be too thick to spray properly;
thin by placing container in hot water or allow to reach room temperature or 60°F. Spray
thoroughly, making sure all surfaces are coated. Small trees maybe treated by dipping. Coverage:
One gallon will coat three to five 5' trees, or two to three 8' trees. Warning:
DO NOT treat trees that have been cut for sometime; or treat trees that are dried out or
starting to turn yellow; DO NOT treat trees that have small cones; DO NOT place treated
trees near heat or flame (it may cause it to dry out or ignite). DO NOT leave treated trees
outdoors; rain and snow will remove fire retardant coating. DO NOT use on plastic or
synthetic trees. CAUTION: It is recommended that a test application be completed prior to end use.
