Black Fire Retardant Polyethylene- The Plastic That Doesn't Burn....
Fire Retardant Poly is the Wave of the Future
GPS 4 mil and 8 mil black FIRE RETARDANT Plastic is used for construction, theater productions, museums to protect art from UV lighting, haunted houses -residential and commercial events that require a flame retardant plastic. This plastic doesn't burn it melts. It doesn't add to the fire.
- WHY? It passes all the necessary local fire marshal test requirements which saves lives should a fire break out!:
These black FR films pass the NFPA 701-15 Test 1, Section 1237.1. Also passes the ASTM E84 Class A Test. ("Standard Method of Test for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials". The foregoing
test procedure is comparable to UL 723, ANSI/NFPA No. 255, and UBC No. 8-1.
Are both 4 mil and 8 mil black plastic sheeting opaque?
Yes! One of the largest aerospace company even made new equipment to test these films to 9 decimal places. They blocked out 99.999999999% of light and UV rays.
GPS Black Fire Retardant Polyethylene- 8 mil
The GPS Black Fire Retardant Polyethylene 8 mil accomplishes what the 4 mil product does, but is thicker and stronger. Like the 4 mil, it protects from UV Rays.
