International Fireproof Technology, Inc. (IFTI) and Gaco Western successfully passed an NFPA 286 full-scale room corner test on Gaco Western 183M CC foam at the Intertek testing facilities in Elmdorf, Texas.

Gary Wolfe, Executive Vice President of IFTI, said, “We passed the 183M the first time back on May 8, 2011 with the use of our DC315 primer at 6 mils wet-film thickness (WFT) top coated with DC315 at 23 mils WFT. The new test was passed at the incredible spread rate of 20 mils (80 sq. ft. per gallon) with no primer needed.” The successful re-test will mean applicators will benefit from dramatically reduced labor and product costs when using Gaco Western 183M where a thermal barrier is required.
