Our GREENGUARD certified products are Albi Clad TF+, Albi Clad TF, Albi Clad FP, and Albi Cote FRL-X.


Albi Clad TF+ fireproofing is Albi’s most advanced water-based, thin-film intumescent paint (coating) designed for up to 4-hour fire protection on Structural Steel in accordance with UL263/ ASTM E-119. Unlike ordinary fireproofing, Albi Clad TF+ applied at minimum thickness for a smooth, architectural finish. Significantly reduced required Dry Film Thicknesses make TF+ one of the most efficient intumescent products on the market. Click here to learn more about the Albi Clad TF+.

Albi Cote FRL-X is a water-based, co-polymer fire retardant paint (intumescent coating), which provides excellent fire-retardant properties. Albi Cote FRL-X is odor-free and offers the advantages of easy application and cleanup. This durable fire-retardant coating provides a serviceable, wash-resistant flat finish for a wide variety of interior applications. Designed for interior use, Albi Cote FRL-X is a quick-drying special coating that reacts to flame or heat at 300 °F (149 °C) by expanding into a thick multicellular insulating blanket. This intumescent carbonaceous foam sharply limits the spread of flame and insulates the surface to which it is applied. Albi Cote FRL-X provides a decorative, washable, and mar-resistant finish like conventional paint, with the added advantages of a Class A fire retardant paint (coating).
