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.
