To assist customer to settle issues of APP flame retardant application in fireproof coating. Presafer application team made an extensive research.Here we list several cases for your ref.

Poor flame retardant performance
fireproof coating poor flame retardant performance issue
Possible reasons: 1.Coating contains no flame retardant or low dosage of flame retardant. 2.forumation is not suitable for system. 3.too much fillings,such as titanium pigment, calcium carbonate, barium sulfate,talc,ect.

Film bubbling off after rain washing
film bubbing off after rain washing
Possible reasons: 1.high water solubility of flame retardant(ammonium polyphosphate or pentaerythrite),low water resistancy. 2.Flame retardant coating resin is the same as anti rust painting resin,and low dosage adding, high pigment ratio. 3.base coat and middle coat not match or painting fresh layer before base coating dry.

Whitening or precipitation after rain washing
film whitening or precipitation after rain washing 
Possible reasons:1.high water solubility of flame retardant(ammonium polyphosphate or pentaerythrite ),2.Pentaerythrite or ammonium polyphosphate precipitates from coating after rain washing.3,not enough resin,poor film forming property.

Film dropping off
flm dropping off
Possible reasons:1,resin dosage is low, poor adhesion or low quality. 2, high pigment ratio.3, ammonium polyphosphate has much small molecule. fast hydrolysis, small molecule material make resin degration and efflorescence.

Film dropping off
film dropping off in large scale
Possible reasons: 1.base coating and fireproof coating not match.2.painting fresh layer before base coating dry, film dropping off in large scale when reach certain thickness. 3.high water solubility of ammonium polyphosphate, degradtion after rain washing then lead to efflorescence,losing original properties.

Film cracking or alligatoring
film cracking or alligatoring
Possible reasons: 1.resin is fragile, not adding flexibilizer or dosage is not enough. 2.high pigment ratio or single coating is too thick. 3.bad compatibility of ammonium polyphosphate and resin, high oil absorption value. 4.Solvent evaporation rate is not balanced,different surface tension lead to cracking or alligatoring.

Inhole,shrinkage hole
film inhole or shrinking hole issue
Possible reasons: 1.coating may mix some materials that lead to film defect. for example, too much silicone flatting agent, water or foreign matters entered during production,packing barrls contain lubricant oil ect . 2.some materials drop on film surface before it dry. Such as water or oil concentrated in air transmission pipes.

Poor weather resistance
coating poor weather resistance
Possible reasons: 1.high pigment ratio. 2.low polymer degree of ammonium polyphosphate, many small molecutes.

In homes, office and public buildings, if there is the building material without protection, once breaking out of fire, the building material such as steel structures, metal sheets, wood, plaster and concrete will gradually lose intensity and become easy to collapse. However, if these building material are coated with special coating, then the heat would be blocked, which will lengthen the survival time.>>>

Flame retardant for texile.

According to the research on the fire causes, improper textile will help fire spread. Now in the world, there have been the fire protection requirements regulated indomestic and foreign standard. Different end use of textile complies with different flame retardant requirements. For example, in USA, the textiles used in the automotive component must pass FMVSS 302. In Europe, the textile used in building must satisfy ISO 13501. Therefore, it will be wise to choose the flame retardant based on the textile’s end uses.>>>

Flame retardant for potting material.

Fireproof sealing and potting material are widely used in construction, electric and electronics, Flame retardant can extend the ignited time of the material and maximum inhibit the flame spreading speed.

Flame retardants for plastics.

Nowadays, plastic has been to the indispensable part in our life, and due to the potential risk of fires, there is the wide needs on flame retardancy .Generally speaking, flame retardants used in these applications may obviously reduce the heat deflection temperature of the plastic and take effect on other properties like mechanical properties and electrical properties. Presafer flame retardants not only has high efficiency but also take other properties into consideration.>>>
