FSPG Fire Resistant Silicone

FSPG Fire Resistant Silicone is used to seal linear joints in floor and wall constructions to reinstate the fire resistance performance. FSPG Fire Resistant Silicone has excellent movement and weathering capabilities, can be applied internally and externally, is supplied in 310ml cartridges and 600ml foils in various colours.

FSPG Fire Resistant Silicone

Key Product Points

  • Fire resistant up to 4 hours in both horizontal and vertical joints.

  • Can be used in joints up to 60mm wide.

  • Non-slump, easy to apply and tool off.

  • No priming required for most substrates.

  • Contributes to Green Building.

  • Highly flexible and waterproof.

Certifications and Approvals

  • EN1366-4

  • EN13501-2

  • 1121-CPR-JA5064, ETA 15/0179

  • Certifire CF511

Key Installation Points

  • For good adhesion the surfaces of the building elements shall be free of any dust or grease and may need to be primed. On good, clean virgin concrete & masonry, no priming required, though refer to substrate compatibility requirements.

  • Ensure that the aperture and services in question are tested with FSPG Fire Resistant Silicone the site conditions are within the application specification. An annular space needs to be present around the service to apply sufficient installation depth.

  • Consider the movement of the joint to be sealed. This should include thermal, wind pressures, settlement and differential movement of components.

  • Consider the characteristics of the substrates as they affect the choice of sealant, i.e. how the surface finish may be affected by sealant compounds and the possibility of discolouration due to oil migration or staining.

  • Consider the location and environment of the joint to be sealed. Exposure to temperature extremes, ultra violet light, radiation, chemical attack, standing water and vibration.

  • Consider the characteristics of all available sealants for performance capabilities, hardness after weathering, movement capabilities in both extension and compression, adhesion properties and chemical resistance.

  • Adequate space and accessibility should be provided for applying and tooling the sealant. Mineral wool (min. 80kg/m3) or PE backing rod where required can be used as backing materials, though the FSPG Fire Resistant Silicone should be installed correctly to achieve the performance needed.

When cable trunking pass through the seal ensure that the inside is filled with FSPG Pillows.
