Flame Fix® IMW 475 can be applied with a spray device with a pressure between 3 and 5 bars. A flower spray with a pump system or tricker mechanism will do fine. The product needs to be sprayed finely over the material with an average distance of about 20 centimeters from the object. After proper treatment the material should be moist. We recommend that after the treatment, the material should dry in a hanging position.

Our advice is to take a small piece of the material as a sample, to get an idea of the desired result. After the fire resistant treatment, it is possible to paint ore coat the material.
