Fire-Retardant coatings for wood framing


Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about fire-retardant coatings? I've found these but can't find any reviews or peoples' experience with them:

I've used Flame Control's latex coating. No different than using regular paint. I think they make a flat and a semi-gloss.

How is this really relevant to the OP question? We all know dried wood burns...

Thanks for the posts guys

Trying to find out if there is a difference between the products I linked to in regards to performance. Just looking for something that delays ignition or at least raises the ignition temperature of the wood, not concerned about performance if the coating if it is actually on fire.

Fire-Retardant coatings for wood framing


This reminds me of a group of Russian contractors looking at U.S. construction and the their first question was "Why do you build homes out if firewood?". They were accustomed to more permanent, safe and durable construction. - They were very polite and did not ask the builders and contractors out of courtesy face-to-face, but dumped it on me because they knew me. The biggest thing was when they questioned me on was a model log home with a fireplace.
