Flame Control No. 170 is a flexible, intumescent type, fire resistant coating. When attacked by fire and/or high heat, the coating puffs up (intumesces) and forms a thick dense fire barrier, thus affording maximum burn through (fire) protection. This  foam layer retards the penetration of heat to the substrate, thus insulating the surface. Aluminum panels 0.050 inches thick, coated with No. 170 to a dry film thickness of 0.054 inches, have successfully passed the standard FAA 2000ºF fire test,  while panels were being subjected to simulated engine take off and operating conditions.

The coated panels completed the FAA 15 minute requirement with an excellent time safety margin. Flame Control No. 170 possesses outstanding  properties in the following categories. Fire resistant (thermal insulating and burn through protection), adhesion to primed and bare aluminum, metal and alloy substrates, flexibility, and crack resistance under continuous vibrating conditions. Where  maximum environmental protection is required, overcoat with Flame Control No. 190.
