No-Frame Fiberglass Edge Coating
Brand : MetroFlex
- NO-FRAME QT
- Unit of Measure:
NO-FRAME Edge Coating is applied to the perimeter edges of fiberglass acoustic panels to allow a "frameless" or "NO-FRAME" installation. NO-FRAME Edge Coating can be brushed, rolled, or sprayed onto fiberglass panels to create a stiffened edge which allows fabric to be wrapped directly around the panel without a frame. NO-FRAME Edge Coating is a water-based penetrating fiberglass coating which gives off no VOCS and is easily cleaned with warm water and soap.
- Saves labor and material costs wasted on building wooden frames
- Lightweight finished product
- No Sloppy / Squished corners
- Easy Install with MetroFlex Impaling Clips
- No VOCs
- Maintains 25/50 Flame Smoke Rating of Fiberglass Board.
- No noxious resin odors.
- Easy Cleanup. (warm water & soap)
- Shake Can
- Stack acoustic panels on covered table (paper/plastic). A spacer can be used to separate panels.
- Lightly brush/roll fiberglass coating on all edges of panels. Double coat all four corners.
- Separate panels to prevent sticking during the drying process.
- Allow 48 hours to completely dry and harden (coating will turn clear once fully dried).
- Wash tools with soap and warm water. Avoid prolonged contact with skin.
Available in Quarts and Gallons
1 Quart = 6 panels 2" (2'x4')
1 Gallon = 24 panels 2" (2'x4')
*Coverage can vary depending on number of coatings and how heavy the coating is applied.
Nothing else I could find at the hardware store would do what this stuff does, this well, especially for the price. I rolled it on because I had so many panels but Im sure it would spread farther with a brush. Don't try to completely get the edges solid white when you are painting (dries clear) or you may run out. Just coat everything once and the corners twice and a quart should do 6 panels easy enough. Hardens nicely and it made it easy to pull the fabric tight and glue everything without messing up the edges, THANKS!
Makes the edges and corners hard enough to not need a frame so the name is appropriate. The safety ring on the gallon bucket was hard to take off, I cant imagine the lid coming off in shipping. Pliers are required.
This product is amazing. I used it on Rockwool Safe & Sound, It hardens the edges really well. Though you would have to use more coating with Rockwool, since it is super flimsy. Owens Corning 703 uses less coating.
Works well for Owens Corning 703 panels but doesn’t go far. Using a small 2” roller I could only complete 2 2’x4’ panels. Pricey with shipping
*Rick, the coverage of the coating varies depending on how heavy it is applied. A lighter first coat with a touch up 2nd coat will get you similar hardness with farther coverage. ~ BIP
This is a great product for sound room reduction however the shipping leads little to be desired!!!
*Thurman, I am glad you happy with the No-Frame product, please let us know what was wrong with the way we shipped the pails. Thank you ~ BIP
We are very pleased with this product and has proved very helpful and easy to work with.
We purchased this product to harden the edge of fiberglass sheeting for sound proof panels for our church! It worked great!
*Christina, we are glad that the No-Frame worked out nicely for your Church project ~ BIP
When applied with a brush this product is 5 of 5
I use a paint gun to apply the product, it works well but requires multiple heavy passes. This is far better than its competitors!
This is my third batch of frameless panels and have perfected my method to get rock hard edges. Paint on first coat, let it slightly dry (couple hours) then paint on a light second coat. I also think painting a little on the front and back of the panels near the edges helps.
*Al, thank you for your tips and also for your your repeat business! ~BIP
No Frame hardens to keep fiberglass edges and corners from compressing when applying fabric. To harden 6 panels it takes me about 15 minutes to paint the edges. If I were to build 6 frames it would take me a few hours and cost much more in wood. The only downside is it takes more than a day to fully dry.
