About this Product
FIRESHELL® (F10E) is a proprietary non-flammable, intumescing (expands up to 2000%) interior coating that provides oxygen starvation to fire. It is a non-toxic, water based, drain safe, no fuming GREEN product.
FIRESHELL® passes full scale room corner over foam NFPA 286 and E84 class A certified. It is a waterbased one part coating system that comes white, gray, and charcoal black. This coating can be latex topcoated.

The successful installation and effectiveness of
FireShell® F10E will depend on many factors including the equipment capabilities & settings, the temperature of the coating in the container, ambient temperature & RH%, substrate temperature & moisture content, substrate type & condition. It is the responsibility of the applicator to take these factors into consideration prior to installation. Cold material will develop higher viscosity which can cause problems during processing such as pump cavitation and poor pre-mixing material. If material appears thickened due to storage at cold temperatures, store material in a warm area prior to application to bring material temperature to > 62° F. FireShell® F10E can be applied with airless spray equipment. Areas requiring special detail or touch up can be brushed or rolled. When using airless spray equipment ensure the equipment has a volume output not less than 0.74 gpm (gallons per minute) and an operating pressure of 3300 psi. The sprayer should be equipped with a filter screen 30-mesh. To ensure proper pressure and delivery to the spray gun use the following rules for hose diameter & length:
- Min. 3/8” ID up to 75’
- Min 1/2” ID up to 200’
- Min 3/4” ID greater than 200’
- Min 3/8” ID & Max 6’ L for whip hose
Always use larger diameter hose sections nearest the pump.
SURFACE TEXTURE OF SPF WILL GREATLY AFFECT MATERIAL ADHESION, SAG RESISTANCE, AND COVERAGE RATE.
SPF surface should have a fine, orange-peel texture (or rougher), and be flat for optimum adhesion and material coverage. SPF surface that is bumpy, or significantly uneven will decrease coating coverage. SPF that has a glossy or slick appearance may need to be abraded or “scuffed” to roughen the surface to promote adhesion of coating. SPF surface must be clean, dry and free of any mildew, oil, grease, dirt, or other foreign contaminants that would prevent proper adhesion. Any such contaminants must be removed from the application surface. For application in high humidity or low temperature environments apply product in thin passes to promote proper drying & curing.
