ECOGARD® flame retardants for paper, paperboard and cardboard are particularly suitable for these applications:
Sheets of paper
Toilet paper [as a decorative object!]
ECOGARD® flame retardants work on these types of paper, paperboard and cardboard:
Basically, ECOGARD® flame retardants for paper and cardboard have a flame retardant effect on all sufficiently absorbent paper, paperboard and cardboard surfaces.
How to use ECOGARD® flame retardants for objects and decorations made of absorbent paper:
Ideally, spray the fire retardant on the item to be protected
Alternatively, the flame retardant can also be applied with a brush or painter’s brush
Please note that:
ECOGARD® flame retardants have a stronger effect the better they are absorbed by the object to be protected. The effect is reduced with materials that are less absorbent, such as painted surfaces. There is no fire retardant effect on water-repellent surfaces such as cellophane-coated papers.
The fire retardant effect is often insufficient on very thick corrugated cardboard (> 5 mm).
ECOGARD® flame retardants are water-based products. Use water to test if the object you want to protect can be treated with the flame retardant. Any visible changes to your object after treatment with pure water will also occur when using the flame retardant.
We cannot make any statements as to the permanence of paints or varnishes on surfaces that have been treated with flame retardant.
We cannot say what effect paints or varnishes have on the fire retardant effect previously achieved.
Therefore, always test thoroughly!
Always pay attention to the warnings and application instructions for the respective product!
