Fire Retardants

Nowadays it is very important to have a coating that has a fire retardant, either in public places or in our own homes.
To understand a little more about why they are important, we will start by saying what fire retardants are and how they work.

Fire retardants are chemical compounds that significantly increase the flash point of the elements treated with them to reach temperature thresholds above normal.

These limits vary depending on the retardant, but in all cases the aim is to reduce the fire hazard.
When retardants are applied on the materials, they are absorbed and eliminate the space for oxygen in order to stop the fire and its propagation.

When the source of the fire continues in contact with the material impregnated by the retardant, the object is consumed much more slowly than usual, thus allowing us to put an end to the fire.

Generally, the application of fire retardants is useful in materials present in closed spaces with combustion risks, such as places for recreation, lodging, dancing, entertainment, education, health, homes, offices, cinemas, theaters, boats, aircrafts, transportation, fire fighting equipment and even in forests.
