How to Make Your Own Fire Retardant Paint

How to Make Fire Retardant Paint

Step 1

Protect your work area with a drop cloth and wear protective gloves. Mixing additives, liquid or powder into paint can be messy.

Step 2

Pour the gallon of paint into the clean 2-gallon bucket. Mix in your additive, using a paint stirrer to blend together. For powder additives, use 6 oz. to 1 gallon of paint for a Class B Fire Retardant Coating Rating. Use 12 oz. to 1 gallon of paint for a Class A Fire Retardant Coating rating. For liquid additives, use 8 oz. to 1 gallon of paint for a Class B Fire Retardant Coating Rating. Use 16 oz. to 1 gallon of paint for a Class A Fire Retardant Coating rating. Mix the additive thoroughly. The additive will not have a negative effect on the color or texture of the paint.

Step 3

Make sure the area to be painted is cleaned and primed. Apply the fire-retardant paint.
