FIRESHELL® for Bayseal® Foams

Part Number BMS-TC


The single application coating allows code compliance using 20% thicker Bayseal® Foams (9 ¼” ceilings, 7 ¼” walls) than other solutions. The test was performed to the more stringent 2011 NFPA 286 revision, 2009 IBC 803.1.2, and meets NFPA 101 life safety code.

It is really exciting to now have the Bayseal® Foams approval with the Fireshell BMS-TC coating as a thermal barrier solution. ITC Group coatings are hands-down our preference. Their yield in the field is significantly higher than other thermal coatings we have tried. We get up to 25% higher field yield with the ITC products, which is a significant savings to us. As a contractor, I need the most cost-effective, easy-to-use fire protection, and ITC coatings are those products.

The coating applies like regular latex paint using an airless sprayer, and being water based, it cleans up easily.
