ASTM D4017 Results of Volatile Organic Compound Content (VOC) Testing of Contego (High Solids) Intumescent
Once again Contego (HS) achieves a superior zero VOC rating.
EN 13823:2002 Test: Ekospray PU foam+ Contego (CON-RFB)
|Location:||TUV Eesti OU|
The product Ekospray PUF 40 mm was coated with Contego (CON-RFB) at 500 micron and protected for 20 minutes with No falling specimen parts; No smoke; No backing board failure and No distortion/collapse of the specimen.
UL 1715: Fire Retardant for Wall Construction as to Fire Growth and Damageability in Accordance with ANSI/UL 1715
EN 13823 (SBI Method) and EN ISO 11925-2
|Location:||SP Fire Research|
Test was performed on “Moln” composite panel, with a foam core and GRP surface layer on both sides. The panel has an intumescent paint coating.
AIT Labs “Fire Resistance Test”
Our first ad hoc test on polyurethane foam insulation demonstrated that untreated foam was highly flammable and produced extremely high volumes of dense, black smoke. However, with just two coats of Contego, the foam was completely protected. Click on the link to watch the video to see for yourself.
UBC – 26.3 “Room Fire Test Standard for Interior of Foam Plastic Systems”
After 11 minutes after the start of the test, all indicators – smoke generation, temperature, and threshold heat rise, were all actually declining and continued to decline until the test was terminated.
ASTM D4541-09e1 “Pull-Off Strength of Coatings Using Portable Adhesion Testers”
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 D3359 “Standard Methods For Measuring Adhesion by Tape Test”
Using both methods available under ASTM D-3359, adhesion was 100% with 0% paint loss by peeling or removal on a completely nonporous surface.
ASTM E84-10 (UL 723, UBC 8-1, NFPA 255) “Test for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials”
BSS 7239-88 “Test Method for Toxic Gas Generation by Materials On Combustion”
|Location:||Omega Point Laboratories|
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 D4017 “Volatile Organic Compound Content”
Contego Original Intumescent isn’t a LOW VOC product, it is a NO VOC product with VOC levels too low for currently available technology to detect.
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.
