Air curing, it forms a non-hardening flexible seal. When exposed to fire it will swell to 4 times its original size, creating a char, preventing the passage of fire, smoke and toxic gases for up to 4 hours.
Expansion/contraction joints, cartridge applied in gaps up to 35mm
Irregular or uneven gaps around door casings and window sills
Irregular or uneven gaps around service penetrations
Sealing fire protection boards and partitioning

1. Ensure all surfaces are sound, clean, dry and free from dust or grease.
2. Use the appropriate backing material to set the depth of the seal. Joint width or depth should be not less than 6mm so that there is sufficient material to give the movement required.
3. Gun in the sealant, taking care to avoid entrapping air or leaving gaps, and ensure there is a complete contact between sealant and substrate.
4. Tool down using a wetted spatular. Store in cool dry conditions.
