Specifying Sprayed Fire-Resistive Materials (SFRM): What's the binder got to do with it?
Do you ever feel like the master specifications that come ‘out of the box’ are TOO simple? For a product as critical to life safety as SFRM is, you want to be certain that your specification covers all the performance bases in a clear, concise, correct, and complete manner. For this roundtable, we will focus on structuring a specification to address the critical performance requirements of SFRM.
Please come prepared for discussion on your experiences working with SFRM specifications. Input from all is encouraged.Facilitated by:

- Review the types of spray-applied fireproofing products available.
- Evaluate the performance characteristics (binder, density, and bond strength) of the different SFRM formulas and how best to use each combination.
- Identify and discuss the applicable code requirements, including testing and inspections, regarding SFRM.
- Review different approaches for specifying SFRM versus the ARCOM Masterspec.
