Rosco RoscoFlamex PC Paper & Cardboard Flame Retardant was formulated specifically to treat the many paper products commonly used in props and scenery construction. Most paper products without a wax coating or other water resistant properties can be effectively treated.
Using Flamex PC
Rosco Flamex PC has been premixed and does not require any further dilution. The method of application and the amount of Flamex required for sufficient treatment varies with the materials in use. Some discoloration and wrinkling of paper products may occur as the paper materials dry. Multiple light treatments will minimize this.
One gallon of Flamex PC will treat approximately 400 square feet (37 square meters) of fabric.
Over saturating the fabric may cause it to stiffen or otherwise alter its hand. ALWAYS treat a test sample to determine how the fabric will react and to test for effective flame retardance.
Certification and Testing
Flamex PC has been approved for use by the California and New York City Fire Marshall and has been tested according to NFPA 701.
Store Flamex products in non-metallic containers. When metal sprayers are used, they should be thoroughly cleaned immediately after use, including nozzles and accessories. Avoid use of metal buckets or paint containers when possible.
Read carefully the instructions supplied with any Flamex product. Rosco offers these products in good faith, but without guarantee of any type, since materials treated and methods of application are beyond the control of the manufacturer. You should determine suitability of the Flamex product for the intended use and always test before using.
