Grignard Company Introduces New Line of Flame Retardants

Fire Armor Flame Retardants Mitigate Combustion Risk at Haunt, Corn Maze and Other Outdoor and Indoor Venues, Enhancing Safety and Compliance.

RAHWAY, NJ – Grignard Company, a leading manufacturer and provider of high-quality theatrical fluids, announced today the market introduction of its new line of Fire Armor flame retardants. Formulated specifically for outdoor and indoor entertainment venues and manufactured in the USA, the new products are designed to reduce the risk of fire for a wide range of combustible materials typically used at haunt, Halloween, corn maze, and other similar venues. A key advantage is the ability to inspect and verify the presence of the flame retardant.

Developed by Grignard’s in-house R&D chemists, Fire Armor flame retardants are water-based formulations that are easily spray applied to combustible materials, drying clear. Applied correctly, they provide a protective barrier between the treated material and a heat source. Fire Armor flame retardants are non-toxic, user-safe, environmentally safe, and contain no PDBE (polybrominated diphenyl ether). They are certified by an independent third party to comply with a range of pertinent substrates.

Two formulations are available. Fire Armor flame retardant is specially formulated for use in outdoor applications treating hay, straw, dried grasses, brush, and other cellulosic materials. Fire Armor Blue uses UV inspection technology to allow fast, easy inspection of treated materials. It glows blue in the presence of UV light, verifying that the treated material is protected.

“Reducing the risk of fire at outdoor and indoor haunt venues is a critical public safety concern. With our new Fire Armor flame retardant products, Grignard gives venue owners and managers an effective, easy-to-use and verifiable solution for protecting their guests and their staffs,” said Kelly Akre, Partner at Grignard Company. “Safety and patriotism are core values at Grignard and we’re proud to provide flame retardants that are made right here in the USA.”
