Houston, Texas -- Flame Seal Products Inc. claims that its Flame Seal-TB product is the only thin-film coating that satisfies every aspect of the code and certification requirements for use as a thermal barrier over polyurethane foam insulation, as laid down by ICC.
Flame Seal-TB was not only the first thin film coating to receive ICC Certification under the Thermal Barrier requirements in the fire codes, but it also remains the only product that legitimately qualifies for use on polyurethane foam to satisfy this important life and safety code, the firm said in a 22 Nov announcement.
Flame Seal-TB has also been certified for ignition barrier code requirements at the request of customers. Although that test is far less challenging, Flame Seal joins a number of other good products in that aspect of this important work, the Flame Seal announcement said, adding that it is the thermal barrier requirement that is the prime market because at present there are no legitimate competitors in that very difficult aspect of the code.
Flame Seal-TB has passed all testing and met all requirements according to ICC protocol, and is presently certified for use on the following foam brands:
Bayer, BASF, Certainteed, Icynene, Biobased, Dow
*All Intertek and Warnock-Hersey certified, ICC certifications in various stages with all brands. As of this writing, three are complete, as the others are imminent.
"The company's new market awareness programme is now being elevated in intensity because of the vast potential in this market, as well as the life saving aspect of this work and the responsibility that we feel goes with providing a life / safety product to the public, said Michael Kiser, the firm's president.
