fireblock

Low modulus, non-slumping, PSA composite sealant suitable for fire and acoustic rated construction. The sealant is light grey in colour.


Uses

  • Non-trafficable control joints in concrete, masonry and brick fire rated construction
  • Acoustic sealing between most common building materials such as concrete, masonry, plasterboard, fibre cement, metals, timber and plastic as part of a suitable design
  • Penetrations and perimeter sealing in plasterboard

Application Tips

  • Clean tools and equipment in water before the sealant cures. To remove cured sealant, tools will need to be soaked in water followed by mechanical action.
  • Not recommended for continuous submersion or below water line use. For exterior applications protect from rain until painted with suitable exterior paint.
  • Substrates must be clean, dry and free from oil, grease, release agents, dust and loose material.
  • Cut the end of the sausage and place in a Selleys sausage gun. Extrude sealant smoothly into joint.
  • For fire rating, joint width should be between 10mm and 40mm. Minimum joint depth should be 10mm or half the width for joints wider than 20mm. Install open cell polyurethane backing rod in joint to control sealant depth.
  • The sealant cures by water evaporation; therefore cure rate is dependant on humidity, ambient temperature and joint size. Typically, the sealant will form a thick skin within 24 hours and full cure can be expected after 7 days. In humid or cool conditions the sealant cure will be longer.
  • Allow the sealant to form a thick skin before painting with a flexible paint. To avoid paint cracking with flat and/or ceiling paint, the sealant should be allowed to fully cure before painting.
