No-Burn, a company specializing in fire resistant technology, announced that its Plus XD intumescent coating has passed the test that was performed in compliant with AC 377 Appendix X and has been approved for application at the lowest wet mil thickness over BASF’s ENERTITE NM open-cell polyurethane foam plastic insulation.
The coating, which is utilized in lieu of a recommended ignition barrier for Plus XD and ENERTITE NM assembly, is applied at a thickness of 6 mils wet. Plus XD will cover about 267 sq. ft. per gallon at this thickness.
ENERTITE NM, a low-density insulation, is ideal for Type V construction. The application of Plus XD coating with ENERTITE NM solution is allowed within restricted attics and crawl spaces, as per the applicable parts of the International Residential (IRC) and International Building Codes (IBC).
The intumescent coating from No-Burn meets commercial and residential LEED specifications and other green rating requirements, like Rule 314 and Rule 1113, for low VOC emissive and low VOC content paints and coatings.
The benefits of applying Plus XD at the newly tested thickness include simple installation by spray foam contractor, minimized job durations, increased productivity and access to nationwide distribution centers for local delivery.
No-Burn’s products have popular in the market and also have an excellent record for technical support, customer satisfaction and performance.
