Chemical Penetrant Technology
Global Fireproof Solutions’ proprietary application method was developed to fully utilize the chemical technology of Fire Retardant Coatings of Texas’ FX Lumber Guard XT chemical penetrant. Unlike other chemicals and coatings, FX Lumber Guard XT is designed to penetrate deeply into wood fibers without the use of a pressure process, and without the need for kiln drying.
We are able to offer fire retardant applications on all varieties of soft wood, exotic woods, and all species commonly used in construction. These applications can be performed quickly, with typical turn times per truckload being less than 1 business week.
All applications performed in our factories on Plywood, Dimensional Lumber, and OSB are certified to ASTM E84 and ASTM E2768 by Intertek under CCRR-1044.
