FIREPRO® SoftSeal High Expansion Intumescent Sealant (310ml) and FIREPRO® SoftSeal Flexible Acoustic Intumescent Sealant (310ml).
FIREPRO® SoftSeal Coated Strip is intended to reinstate the fire resistance, acoustic and air seal performances of concrete floors, masonry walls and dry wall systems when voids have been created for the passage of services.
This includes pipes made of steel, cast iron, copper, polypropylene (PP), high density polythene (HDPE), PVC and ABS along with all sheathed cables up to 80mm and supported cable bundles up to 100mm.
Higher levels of service movement may be accommodated by installing the product under higher compression rates, please contact ROCKWOOL Technical Solutions for guidance.
ROCKWOOL FIREPRO® SoftSeal Coated Strip has been tested to the dedicated fire resistance standard for penetration seals BS EN1366-3 and shown to provide up to 2 hours fire performance (EI20). Standard details, showing the full scope of fire performance, are available from the ROCKWOOL Technical Solutions Team on 01656 862621.
FIREPRO® SoftSeal Coated Strip fire resistance tests were conducted using FIREPRO® SoftSeal Flexible Acoustic Intumescent Sealant and/or FIREPRO® SoftSeal High Expansion Intumescent Sealant.
For vertical applications the FIREPRO® SoftSeal Coated Strips are coated on both sides.
As part of the testing to BS EN 1366-4, FIREPRO® SoftSeal was assessed for its movement capabilities, prior to conducting the fire test. The product was tested to accommodate movement (expansion and contraction) of +/-15%*.
