Concrete Fire Tests

ASTM E-119 – 08 “Standard Methods of Fire Tests of Building Construction & Materials” 


While concrete is obviously noncombustible, it still builds up thermal energy quickly and then explodes. When the cold side ruptures, the wall collapses.

In this test, which was performed at Guardian Laboratories in New York, we demonstrate that you can protect a concrete block wall for more than 3 hours with a super thin coat of Contego. Even with a top coat, Contego provides protection that you can trust.

BSS 7239-88  “Test Method for Toxic Gas Generation by Materials On Combustion”

Location: Omega Point Laboratories
Test Date:  02.06.2002

We measured toxicity native in the can as well as in a burn condition using a cone colorimeter. The results show that Contego is completely non-toxic. No other product comes close.

ASTM D4541-09e1 “Pull-Off Strength of Coatings Using Portable Adhesion Testers”

Test Name:  ASTM-D4541-09e1
Location: KTA
Test Date: 09.25.2013

Our ASTM D-4541 test was conducted September 25, 2013 at KTA and showed over 630 PSI, more than twice that of our closest competitor and four times that of others.  Combined with results of our ASTM D3359 test using both the cross cut and ribbon cut methods with 0% loss, nothing beats Contego’s adhesion.

ASTM D4017  “Volatile Organic Compound Content”

Location: KTA
Test Date:  06.11.2007

Contego isn’t a LOW VOC product, it is a NO VOC product with VOC levels too low for currently available technology to detect.

ASTM E283-04 “Test Method for Determining Rate of Air Leakage”

Location: Intertek
Test Date:  10.27.2008

In this test we determine the rate of air leakage through exterior windows, curtain walls and doors.

Sample QC Reports (Other than UL Listing)

Contego is perhaps the only intumescent manufacturer that uses dual redundant QC analysis of our entire production. We use UL, Materials Analytical Services and MAGI to critically evaluate our product on an ongoing basis using spectroflouroscopic analysis. Note how each graph over the past nine years is essentially identical.
