1 Are the sound absorption products fire retardant? - Yes, all of the sound absorption products have fire retardants chemically added to the foam's formula.
2 What would happen if the sound absorption products were exposed to fire? - The foam will smolder and smoke, but it will not burst into flames. After the source of fire is removed, the foam will burn slowly and have a high probability to "self-extinguish". VADCON does not encourage exposing any foam to extreme heat or fire.
3 What information is needed to pass my building codes? - Be sure to check requirements in your area before ordering/installation. The foam has been tested in accordance with ASTM E84 and NFPA 255 for surface burning and meets a "Class A" or "Class 1" standard. Class A represents that the material will not burn or smoke much - these products register a 25 Flame Spread Index and a 250 Smoke Spread Index.
