Common Uses


PROTECT YOUR HOME FROM WILDFIRE

Last year 330,00 people lost their lives and homes due to wildfire worldwide. Most homes prone to wildfire should be treated on the exterior roof, eves, decking, awning, shrubbery against the house, and any exposed surfaces of the home that are not fire resistant.

PROTECT Construction materials from catching FIRE

Construction materials such as lumber, particleboard, and drywall are officially considered combustible materials because their surfaces can readily burn when exposed to fire. Lumber and particleboard typically continue to burn when on fire since more wood fuel becomes exposed after each layer burns away.

The gypsum in drywall (calcium sulfate dihydrate) only burns at very high temperatures (such as a blast furnace) but the paper coating will burn and fire can spread when the back of the board gets hot enough to ignite the paper and the wooden studs behind it. 

The fiberglass within insulation will melt rather than burn, but any paper coating such as that used in rolls of insulation will readily burn.

Treating the surfaces of combustible materials with PYROCHILL renders the material noncombustible, meaning the material will not ignite or burn when subjected to fire or heat!

PROTECT Surfaces that are painted, polished, or waxed from catching FIRE

Polishes, waxes, and oil-based paints are generally combustible in liquid form, meaning they have a flash point and can ignite between 100F and 200F. When dried, such as after being applied to a surface, these materials create a thin barrier to coat and/or protect the surface. Just imagine making that coating a fire-resistant barrier!
By adding PYROCHILL to coating liquids such as acrylic, latex, or even oil-based paint, you can fire-proof the surfaces of your home, your business, your trailer, your shed, or even your treehouse!

PROTECT YOUR HIGH RISE APARTMENT OR CONDOMINIUM which might be built to outdated Fire Codes or have no Sprinkler System

Many buildings are older and more prone to fires because they were built to more lax fire safety codes. Additionally, high rise buildings have unique challenges because of greater distances and time to exit which can also restrict access by Fire Department personnel responding to a fire. Treating combustible surfaces in these spaces with PYROCHILL will prevent a fire from starting or spreading.

A National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) study for the years 1971 through 1975 found that approximately 20 lives were lost each year in the United States in sprinklered buildings as compared to approximately 8,000 lives lost each year in building fires where no sprinkler system was installed.

PROTECT YOUR HOME AND BUSINESS FROM WITHIN

Homes and businesses contain numerous combustible materials from drywall, carpeting, furniture, window coverings (drapes, shades, etc.), and wood floors, beams, and stairs to clothing, linens, books, and paper products. When faulty appliances or wiring overheat, or when unattended ignition sources such as hot stoves or lit candles or cigarettes start a fire, it can spread in minutes, leaving very little time for anyone to escape. The thick smoke produced by a fire quickly obscures exit pathways and typically overwhelms individuals via smoke inhalation well before the flames of a fire can kill. Once a fire starts, escape time is critical. Treating combustible surfaces with PYROCHILL will prevent a fire from starting or spreading, providing additional time to safely exit if a fire is nearby, thus saving lives as well as protecting your home or business.

PROTECT YOUR AUTOMOBILE AND GARAGE from fire

Almost everything within the interior of a vehicle including carpeting, upholstery, and plastics can burn. Even rubber tires. Garage spaces are particularly susceptible to fire since many people store lumber, spare tires, boxes, and other materials ranging from newspapers to seasonal clothing to chemicals, paints, and fuels in their garage. Treating the interior of vehicles and exposed surfaces of walls and materials stored in a garage with PYROCHILL will prevent a fire from starting or spreading.

PROTECT YOUR BOAT, RV, AND CAMPING GEAR from fire

Almost everything within the interior of boats and RVs including carpeting, wall surfaces, upholstery, hoses, and plastics can burn. External canopies can catch fire as well. Camping gear such as sleeping bags, tents, towels, blankets, pillows, and spare clothing layers are often placed near campfires or used in the vicinity of fireworks. So don't forget to treat those exposed surfaces with PYROCHILL as well to prevent a fire from starting or spreading from something as simple as a misdirected spark.

PROTECT VALUABLE POSSESSIONS from fire

And much, much more

Many important items such as artwork, crafts, and papers can be protected from fire. Treat both sides of wills, deeds, certificates, passports, and other individual records with PYROCHILL, or store them together within a folder or envelope that can be treated with PYROCHILL. Photo album collections, for example, can be protected simply by treating the outsides of the album. Exposure to direct flames may cause the edges of these items to melt or char but they will not burn if properly treated with PYROCHILL.
