K-500 Perimeter Shield is applied directly to the natural areas around the perimeter of your home, property or facility. The product is applied to dry grass, brush, shrubs, wood and other cellulose type material, with nearly no impact to the environment. The product has been developed to protect the ignition zone outside of the perimeters of structures or landscaped areas during wild fire events. The product is a passive fire retardant and can be applied at the beginning of the fire season and will remain in place unless exposed to prolonged rain or water exposure. When the areas treated with K-500 Perimeter Shield are exposed to fire or extreme heat, the vegetation or wood forms a carbon-char, which interferes with combustion and prevents fire propagation-creating the Ultimate Fire Shield.
It comes with 5 lbs of K-500 to make 5 gallons. 1 Gallon of mixed product provides 100-200 square feet of coverage. Total coverage: 1000-2000 square feet of vegetation (Varies depending on the surface area)
K-500 Perimeter Shield is a powder that is mixed into water at a ratio of approximately one (1) pound of powder to one (1) gallon of water, prior to use. The diluted product is applied directly on the natural areas surrounding the perimeter of homes or landscaped areas. A heavy covering layer of the fire retardant mix should be applied directly within a 10ft - 20ft wide radius from the perimeter of the landscaped area. Note: The standard packaging of 50 pounds per bag is added to 50 gallons of water. The product will evaporate where applied and will remain in this state until exposed to fire or removed by water. The product is composed of non-toxic materials and is environmentally biodegradable. The product may be used on nearly all types of plants and shrubs.
