Description

FIRESHELL® (F1E) is an exterior rated, flexible 1-part, self priming intumescent fire resistant paint for use on a variety of timbers.

F1E meets the requirements for bushfire-resisting timber specified in AS3959:2009 Construction of Buildings in bushfire-prone area Appendix F. Bushfire-resisting timber is timber that is deemed to be acceptable to withstand exposure up to a BAL—29 condition. And where exterior fire resistant paint applications and bush fire resistant timber are required.

Applications

  • Timber Framing
  • Timber Cladding
  • Structural deck and pergola timber
  • Underfloor applications
  • Roof space ember attack applications
  • Fences
  • Power poles
  • External timber
  • Windows
  • Any timber application where bushfire resistant timber is required

Features

  • Self-priming
  • Exterior rated
  • Flexible
  • Non flammable intumescent coating
  • Expands under heat to provide an insulation layer
  • Provides oxygen starvation to substrate
  • Water based Low VOC coating
  • Can be top coated

Bushfire-resisting timber is timber that is deemed to be acceptable to withstand exposure up to a BAL—29 condition. to first Rating box in table.

The F1E system was developed to allow a simple application process by brush roll or airless spray. It is important that the required thickness is achieved. Where it is not viable to have a qualified tradesman apply the coating you must consult with your certifying body to ensure they are satisfied with you applying the coating.

Detailed application guidelines are contained in the Manufacturer’s Specification and a Wet Film Thickness Gauge (tool that allows to easily gauge the thickness of the coating as you apply it) is included with each shipment.

EXFIRE are currently working with the Master Painters Australia to ensure that a qualified Master Painter in your area has information on the system and will be available to apply and certify application as required. More information regarding this will be available shortly.

If you have any questions please call or email us to discuss.
