Pyroshield Matt

Application

Suitable for use in communal areas of public buildings, where reducing fire risk is a priority.

Description

Dulux Trade Pyroshield Matt is a matt finish with a formulation that inhibits the spread of flame on previously painted wall and ceiling surfaces.


The water-based flame retardant product tested to BS 476, parts 6 and 7, upgrades substrates of fire classification from Class 3 to Class 0 (when used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions).


Available in a wide range of colours, it is suitable for all pre-painted, plaster-based interior wall and ceiling surfaces.


Dulux Trade Pyroshield is ideal for use in communal areas of public buildings, where reducing fire risk is a priority.


Features and benefits:


  • Flame retardant.
  • Upgrades BS 476 fire classification.
  • Smooth matt finish.
  • Water-based.


Please note:


  • Pyroshield provides a substrate upgrade to meet BS476 and not any EN standards.
  • All sales of Pyroshield must be to Professional appliers.
  • All sales must be linked to a valid Specification number.
  • New and Current / old ranges cannot be mixed.


Two coats of Pyroshield Matt are required at a coverage of 12m² per litre (this equates to two coats at a wet film thickness of 85 microns each). Do not thin.


For sealed surfaces it is recommended that the substrate is abraded before application to provide a ‘key’ (please refer to the Technical Data Sheet).


Over some (sealed) surfaces it may not be possible to achieve the recommended spreading rate on the first coat, and more than two coats may be required to achieve sufficient film build.
