Fire Retardant Paint Test

Infrared Thermography or IR imaging scanning can observe conditions on power systems, refractory insulation problems, determine build up in process vessels, building envelopes, heat loss in homes. IR scanning is great for developing a PMP on boiler systems and other frequent equipment needing observations. Infrared excels to look at in-floor heating prior to concrete coring or cutting. IR also detects for electrical panels and power supply units such as bearings in motors heat signatures We are located in the Edmonton Area and cover all video inspection work in Western Canada, Alberta and the Oil Sands in Fort McMurray.

This image shows a a thin layer of newly developed fire retardant paint on oak laminate. The burn was conducted until the burner ran out of fuel. This image was taken after approximately 45 minutes with the burner approximately 3″ away from the sample and temperatures over 800 degrees C.
This sample was burned from the bottom, painted side of the sample for 45+ minutes without burning through or discoloring the top side. Unpainted oak laminate was engulfed in flame almost immediately.
