ECO DISASTER BREAK™
FIRE & MOLD PROTECTION
Eco Disaster Break™ (EDB) is a Class A Fire Rated, UV Resistant, high performance, non-toxic, acrylic coating that forms a waterproof and seamless monolithic membrane. When applied to Eco Red Shield™ protected wood surfaces, EDB™ forms the most advanced defensive construction assembly available against water penetration, fire ignition, mold, rot and termites.
Technical White Paper - To learn more about how to the apply EDB in a post-disaster rebuild scenario, and other effective defensive rebuilding methods, please visit this link. This technical white paper, in association with the Institute of Defensive Building Practices (IDBP), outlines the recommended steps and processes involved in a comprehensive, post-disaster rebuild; guided by defensive building practices.
INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR WATERPROOFING
The calculated coverage rate for Eco Disaster Break™ on a flat, non-porous surface is: 126 sq. ft per gallon (applied @ 13 wet mils = 7 dry film thickness per coat.) Rate per gallon varies depending upon porosity, texture, condition of the surface and the mil thickness.
Rough, highly textured surfaces require more material than flat or smooth surfaces. Eco Disaster Break™ can be used over various interior or exterior surfaces including: walls, ceilings, trim, flat Transite, rough, porous, textured or irregular surfaces, cementitious surfaces, stucco, wood siding, shingle siding, window frames.
To prevent damage to the coatings when removing all plastic and masking tape, use a utility knife to first cut at coating edges.Where caulking is required to produce a smooth surface and/or to seal around windows, doors and seams, use compatible caulk (trowelable grade or in tubes). Patch damaged areas as needed. Allow to dry before applying the topcoat.
Apply one or two coats of Eco Disaster Break™ over all the dry primed surfaces. Apply at a coverage rate of 126 square feet per gallon, per coat (13 wet mils). This will produce 7 dry mils per coat. Allow to dry before applying second coat and let the system dry overnight before removing tape.
Eco Disaster Break™ Application Guidelines for coverage rates and equipment specifications:
Apply by brush or roller, or airless sprayer.
- Spray Application: Use self-cleaning reversible spray tip. Size .019-.035 (.021 is most often used).
- Brush: Use any nylon bristle brushes.
- Roller: Use a ¾ inch nap.
All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of dirt, grease, oil, or other contaminants that would interfere with proper adhesion.
Apply in temperatures between 50ºF and 100ºF.
Easy to use and clean up is with water.
Dries in 2-8 hours. Cool temperatures and high humidity can affect dry and cure time. Under normal drying conditions, Eco Disaster Break™ will develop full strength and chemical resistance properties 7 to 10 days following application. Flood Break™ dries to form a flat finish surface. The circulation of air helps water-based materials to dry more rapidly. Follow all applicable state and/or federal OSHA Guidelines.

ECO SUPPORTS AND DEFENDS
WHY FIRE PROTECTION IS IMPORTANT
1. New growth lumber burns faster than old growth lumber. Anything built after 1980 most likely uses new growth lumber. 2. Traditional construction techniques were conceived with old growth lumber and have not evolved with the transition to juvenile lumber which is more porous and dries out much quicker. 3. Firemen don’t have a vested interest in saving a burning home they deem unsafe. Typically, by the time they get to the scene, the house is already engulfed in flames and unsafe for firemen to enter. Eco Red Shield™ has 3x the ignition time - giving firemen valuable time to save your home and occupants to leave safely.
NO CODE FOR THIS BLACK MOLD?
This lumber has been acceptable to contractors and even building officials for years because the removal of it has never been written into any code. At Eco Building Products we are establishing a new industry standard for building with lumber as demonstrated by our indoor air quality certifications.
