Timber Flame Retardant Summary

Timber Flame Retardant

 FabShield IPW/E

Flame Retardant Coating For Timber

IPW/E is suitable for internal and external timber.  It has non-flammable properties which restrict ignition and the spread of flame.  The product is easy to apply, possessing high diffusion properties enabling it to quickly penetrate into the surface of the substrate.  

IPW/E is typically used on cladding, log cabins, garages, summer houses, staircases, bathrooms, saunas and pool enclosures.  Critical engineering properties i.e. strength, durability, hygroscopicity and corrosivity are not compromised.

Product benefits include:

  • Fully tested on a range of timber substrates 
  • Fire properties will remain active for the lifetime of the substrate
  • Ecologically friendly
  • Non-toxic
  • Solvent free
  • For internal and external use
  • Not broken down by water or humidity
  • Does not leach
  • Anti-fungicidal properties
  • Final finish can be left natural or over-coated with certain stains, varnish and paint

Testing Information

Certification: BS EN 13823 & BS EN 11925-2 SBI Euro class B-s1-d0 (equivalent to UK Class 0, BS467:Part6 & BS476:Part7).

It is imperative when selecting a flame retardant for timber that it has been fully tested on the substrate in question.  For this reason IPW/E has been tested on a wide range of timber substrates including Spruce, Pine, European Oak, Scotch Larch, Siberian Larch, Western Red Cedar and Birch Plywood.  


The application rate is 3.7m² per litre and is usually achieved in approximately 3 coats depending on moisture content of the substrate and atmospheric conditions. Coats should be applied at intervals of a minimum of 1 hour giving a total coverage of 270ml m² (minimum). Do not mix with other solutions, stir well. Use brush, roller, spray (use appropriate mask when spraying), dip or vacuum method. Minimum temperature for application 5ºC.

Compatible Stains 
Remmers Aidol HK Stain

This stain has been awarded the quality mark "RAL Wood
Preservative" after official evaluation of its effectiveness against wood pests and of its safeness for health and the environment when used properly.

Directions: Aidol HK Stain can be applied by brush, dipping and flow coating. Spraying is only permitted in closed facilities. The stain is ready to use after thorough stirring or shaking. Remove old coatings such as thick-layer stains and finishing paints as well as bark and bast. The wood must be clean and dry. Apply the stain with a soft brush in the direction of the grain. After drying (approx. 12 hours), apply a second coat. In the case of oak, a coat of clear stain is recommended as a primer. Check the colour on the respective wood surface with a trial coating.

Renovation coats: the substrate must be clean and dry and can be recoated without sanding or stripping. Close opened containers tightly after use; use the contents as soon as possible. Permissible wood moisture for soft wood is 25% (maximum) and for hardwood 20% (maximum).

Coverage approximately 50m2 per 5 Litre

Note: IPW/E Flame Retardant should be applied before the Aidol HK Stain.
