How does msl Firecheck work?

Treating absorbent materials with msl Firecheck creates an invisible, fire retardant layer instantly. When exposed to a heat source msl Firecheck forms a carbonized shield deflecting heat.
Can msl Firecheck treat all fabrics?

Firecheck can treat many natural fabrics including; cotton, wool and cotton back draylon. Synthetic fabrics include nylon and mixed fibres such as cotton/polyester. Unfortunately Firecheck will not treat rip stop nylon. As new fabrics are frequently introduced into the market place we recommend testing a small sample or inconspicuous area of the fabric before a full treatment is applied.

Firecheck can also be used to fire proof scenic flats before painting or alternatively when using powder or concentrated scenic paints use Firecheck to dilute instead of water.
