System information

Pyroshield Basecoat from Dulux Trade is a low-hazard flame retardant basecoat, used as part of an approved system for upgrading the reaction to fire surface classification of existing internal finishes.

It is suitable for all plaster based interior wall and ceiling surfaces, which have been previously decorated with multiple layers of paint.

It is easy to apply straight from the can, and is water based for easy cleaning up. Apply 2 or 3 coats of Pyroshield Basecoat from Dulux Trade depending on the classification desired, achieving a combined coverage of 0.69 or 0.46m² per litre depending on number of coats.
