3. Product Description

GEI-FR Emulsion is an ecologically preferred non-fibered fire retardant containing no Asbestos or solvents.  It is water-based, non-flammable and breathable.

GEI-FR Emulsion offers outstanding resistance to weather, cracking and most industrial pollutants.  The emulsion has excellent resistance to heat that can build up on roofs and will not sag, flow, or re-emulsify under any weather conditions.

It can be used over smooth or mineral composition built-up roofing, or as a protective surface for metal roofing, masonry, stucco, parapet walls, curb and base flashings.

GEI-FR Emulsion provides an excellent base coat for GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.’s RoofCoat, AsbestoSafe® and Your Last Coat architectural coatings.
