Contego paint claims to be fire resistant Part 1

Tame the flames and buy the firefighters more time to make the rescue. That's the claim on Contego paint. It is designed to expand when exposed to flames.

As it gets thicker, it forms a hard-char barrier to block the fire from the wood structure.

We teamed up with a builder and built two 8x8x8 wood structures. They paint one with a standard white latex paint and the other with Contego's fire-resistant paint.

Check out the video to see our experiment.
