A clear or white, waterborne fire retardant coating for protecting interior timber and timber related products to BS476: Part 6: 1989 and BS476: Part 7: 1987 to UK Building Regulations Class 0&1. The product is non-hygroscopic and is suitable for interior application, without the use of a protective lacquer. The product has also been tested in accordance with EN13501 Parts EN13823: 2002 (SBI) and EN11925-2: 2002: Ignitability Test on both particleboard and MDF, achieving a rating of B/S1/d0.
To protect timber and timber related materials such as, softwood, hardwood, hardboard, chipboard, plywood, MDF (both fire rated and non-fire rated), bamboo and melamine faced boards. When used in conjunction with the correct protective topcoat, the product can be used on a wide variety of surfaces including, floors, furniture, decorative panelling andcladding (interior). Also capable of protecting previously decorated surfaces (may require the use of a primer). On interior surfaces, not subjected to wear or damage, S92/FR/P can be used without a protective topcoat. The product dries to a satin finish. S92/FR/P is a reasonably robust coating, however all surfaces subject to heavy wear or damage (such as commercial wall panelling and all flooring situations) will require the use of a protective topcoat (contact ACS Technical Department for further details).

PREPARATION (BARE TIMBER)
Ensure all surfaces are clean, dry and free of oil, grease, wax and organic growth, such as mosses, lichens, fungi and moulds. Remove any nibs or splinters, make good any defects and fill knotholes with a suitable intumescent stopping (not Brummer) or timber plugs. Glossy surfaces of prepared timber should be lightly abraded with a fine grit Aluminium Oxide paper (+120 grit) or wire wool and swept clean or vacuumed. Oak and resinous timbers, such as Western Red Cedar, will require an initial application of Product S42/AP Waterborne Adhesion Primer.
PREPARATION (PAINTED OR STAINED SURFACES)
All existing decorative coatings should be in sound condition and well adhered to the substrate. Coatings in poor condition and those showing signs of distress, such as cracking or flaking should be completely removed and cleaned back to a firm sound line. New waterborne coatings should be applied in accordance with the manufacturers instructions and then left for a minimum of 3 days to fully cure. Once dry the stain should be washed with a mild detergent solution to remove residual oils or waxes, rinsed clear with clean water and allowed to dry. Generally a primer is not required when applying S92/FR/P to a decorated surface. All surfaces should be protected from low temperatures and surface condensation during preparation, application and drying.
FOR INTERIOR APPLICATION ONLY
Stir the contents of the container well, before and periodically during application to avoid settlement. Apply by brush, medium knap roller or spray (see separate specification). Do not exceed the coverage rates stated on any specification supplied. Always work to a wet edge and never attempt to brush out the product once it has started to dry.
On bare timber, thin the first coat with a little water to aid penetration. However coating rates should be adjusted to ensure the loadings specified are achieved (i.e. a coat applied at 10m2/litre, when thinned by 10% with water should be applied at 9m2/litre).
S92/FR/P is a waterborne coating and will require good levels of natural ventilation to dry properly. With the clear version, if the first coat remains opaque, apply gentle heat to the surface and increase the ventilation. The first coat must be completely dry and clear before applying the second.
LIMITATIONS OF USE
Do not apply to surfaces that are below 10°C, less than 2°C above the dewpoint or if the relative humidity exceeds 80%. Note the information on exterior application above.
This product is not suitable for use with acid catalysed or pre-cat lacquers. If these are required for topcoat protection, use Product S92/FR. Application to Western Red Cedar and ‘Green’ Oak will require the use of special primers. Contact the technical department for details.
This product may cause dark colours to appear lighter when dry.
