Contego applies like regular paint. No special tools are required.
Our ORIGINAL FORMULA can be applied with a brush, roller, mitt, or virtually any standard sprayer (2400psi/X21 tip).
Our ORIGINAL FORMULA has a broad range of applications since the polymer base allows it to bond tightly to almost any substrate.
It is non-carcinogenic and non-dermatic, and completely safe for use around people and pets. Do you want low VOC’s? How about NO VOC’s for LEED credits or just to have and use a safer, greener product.
For most combustible substrates, two coats (14 to 20 mils dry) gives as much protection as 80 to 120 mils of older-generation intumescents and because it’s so much thinner, it is significantly lighter and very economical.
Fire is the problem... Contego is the Solution!
