California Fire Shield is the certified on site applicator of Inspecta-Shield fire retardant.
A fire retardant is a substance that significantly delays and can prevent the onset of fire.
What is Inspecta-Shield PlusTM?
Inspecta-Shield PlusTM is a durable, non-toxic, non-allergenic fire retardant chemical coating which is carried in an aguenous (water) solution. When completely dried and cured, it is both odorless and colorless and is visible only under a long wave ultra violet light. When applied and cured for 48 hours, Inspecta-Shield PlusTM will resist flame under the most adverse conditions.
Inspecta-Shield PlusTM can be applied to a wide variety of items, including carpeting, bedding, mattresses, upholstery, draperies, paper, and lumber. When properly applied, Inspecta-Shield PlusTM meets or exceeds the criteria for a Class "A" rating on most materials.
How does Inspecta-Shield PlusTM work?
Fire spreads as the temperature of the heat source rises to the point of ignition. Initially, the spread is restricted to items in direct contact with the flame. However, when the temperature reaches 1400o degrees, all combustibles and gases ignite in a phenomenon called Flashover. Flashovers can occur in less than 3 minutes. By significantly increasing the ignition point of combustible items, Inspecta-Shield PlusTM drastically decreases the danger of fire.
How is Inspecta-Shield PlusTM different from other fire retardants?
Inspecta-Shield PlusTM can treat both natural and synthetic materials. It is visible under long wave UV light so that the initial application and any need for reapplication can easily be checked. Inspecta-Shield PlusTM is UV stable and has been demonstrated to significantly inhibit sun fading and sun rot. Inspecta-Shield PlusTM dries to an invisible durable protective shield with no residue or rings to change the esthetics of treated Items. When dry Inspecta-Shield PlusTM is non corrosive to metal.
What is Sun-Shield?
Sun-Shield is the UV Stablizing agent in Inspecta-Shield PlusTM which protects fabrics against damage from sun fading and sun rot.
Does Inspecta-Shield PlusTM work on everything?
No. Inspecta-Shield PlusTM works on items that are absorbent or that will allow Inspecta-Shield Plus'sTM silica to adhere to them. In other words, Inspecta-Shield PlusTM can only treat items it can reach. An easy test is to apply a drop of water to the surface of the material. If the water does not bead up the Item can be treated with Inspecta-Shield PlusTM. Because of its unique penetration formula, Inspecta-Shield PlusTM is able to effectively fire retard lumber and many fabrics previously coated with a soil repellent.
