A paint that could help prevent the spread of bushfires has come from a partnership between the University of NSW (Prof Guan Yeoh) and Flame Security International.

The paint, FSA Firecoat, which is now on sale at selected Bunnings stores, achieved the Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) 40 standard which assesses the bushfire resistance of buildings and construction materialsFSA Firecoat

BAL-40 indicates that a building or material has been tested and approved to withstand higher levels of radiant heat (up to 40kW/m²) and ember attack during a bushfire, providing increased protection in areas prone to extreme fire conditions.
