10 NOVEMBER 2015 COATINGSPROMAG.COM Flame Control Coatings 60-60A Requires No Primer for Open-Cell SPF Flame Control Coatings, the manufac- turer of Flame Control 60-60A, announced today that the unique properties of 60-60A allow the coating to be applied directly to open-cell spray polyurethane foam (SPF). Tim Lockhart, marketing manager of Flame Control Coatings, stated, "60-60A was formulated to be the easiest to use thermal barrier coating on the market. 60-60A is the only single-com- ponent thermal barrier coating that can be applied on open-cell insulation in a single coat, without the use of a primer. For applicators, time is money, and 60-60A will save them a lot of it." Flame Control Coatings has success- fully passed a number of full-scale National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 286 Termal Barrier Tests on diferent brands of spray polyurethane foam. Lockhart stated, "We continue to prove the capabilities of 60-60A through full-scale NFPA 286 testing. It's no secret why 60-60A is becoming the preferred thermal barrier coating for contractors, applicators, architects, fre marshals, and local code ofcials across the country." Located in Niagara Falls, N.Y., Flame Control Coatings has manufactured fre-retardant and heat-resistant coatings for more than 40 years.
