Dupre Minerals


A range of high performance flame retardant additives which can be mixed with established water based emulsion paint systems to upgrade fire retardant properties. Suitable for flammable and non flammable substrates.

Dupré Micashield Flame Retardant Matt is a water based flame retardant coating designed to maintain a surface integrity that inhibits the spread of flame. For use on new non-combustible or previously painted surfaces, the quick dry, low odour formulation makes it ideal for use on internal wall surfaces and ceiling areas where a durable, washable hard wearing finish is required.
