What Can MSL Firecheck be Used On?
Our tests have shown Firecheck can effectively limit fire damage and spread on many natural and synthetic materials; any item that can absorb it can be treated with it.
This includes fire retardation for:
- Foam Rubber
Does MSL Firecheck Meet British Standards?
MSL Firecheck has been tested by an independent laboratory. It was awarded a pass for the following standards:
- BS 5852: 1990 for both natural and synthetic fibres.
- BS 5867: part 2: 1980 on both natural and synthetic fibres.
Natural fibres include cotton, wool, and cotton backed draylon. Synthetic fibres include nylon and mixed fibres, including cotton/polyester blends..
How Does It Work?
Once Firecheck is absorbed into the material it forms an invisible barrier layer. This layer forms a carbonised shield under heat, deflecting a lot of the heat and making it harder for the treated material to catch.
Can I Treat Any Fabric with It?
Unfortunately, Firecheck cannot treat rip stop nylon. However, it can treat most natural and synthetic fabrics.
As new fabrics are being developed, we advise that you test a small sample or inconspicuous area of these new fabrics before applying a full treatment.
Firecheck can be used to treat scenic flats for the stage before painting. Alternatively, if you’re using powder or concentrated scenic paints, consider diluting them with Firecheck instead of with water.
Does MSL Firecheck Work on Wood?
To treat wood, we recommend MSL Timbercheck.
What Can’t It Treat?
Waxed cardboard, plastics, waterproofed fabrics, and painted or varnished services will not absorb MSL Firecheck and so the process does not work. We are familiar with several products which may solve your problem.
How Much is Needed?
Firecheck is an economical fluid. 1 litre will cover between 10 to 12 square metres. It is supplied ready for use and should not be diluted.
Also avialable in 200Ltr drums upon request.
