BURN BARRIER™ 6 is a crystal clear, hardwood sealer developed primarily for use with
Fire Retardants Inc. #166 Retardant Varnish. NOTE: BURN BARRIER™ 166 is part of a fire
retardant varnish sytem and is not a fire retardant when used alone.
Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from all loose or powdery materials, grease, wax or
other foreign matter. All staining and filling must be done using nonbleeding type stains prior
to the application of BURN BARRIER™ 6 Sealer.
(New Work) Previously uncoated surfaces:
Apply a full bodied coat by brush, at a coverage rate of 300 to 450 square feet
gallon. Coverage rate depends upon the porosity of the wood. Highly porous
woods may require a second coat of BURN BARRIER™ 6 Sealer.
(Old Work) Previously coated surfaces:
Previously varnished surfaces must be sanded to remove all gloss, loose or poorly
bonded varnish. Test patch a small area to determine the compatibility of BURN
BARRIER™ 6 Sealer with existing coating, to insure that no lifting or wrinkling
occurs. If lifting or wrinkling develops, it is necessary to completely remove the old
finish before proceeding.
300 to 450 square feet per gallon, depending on porosity of the wood.
For thinning and cleaning equipment, use only BURN BARRIER™ 6 Reducer.
