Soudal Fire Rated Expanding Foam is a one-component, self-expanding, ready to use polyurethane foam, which contains HCFC- and CFC-free propellants which are not harmful for the ozon layer and where the canister is provided with a thread so it can be used on a gun. Soudal Fire Rated Expanding Foam is a PU-foam with fire retardant characteristics according to the European standard EN 1366-4. Because of the Duravalve, the optimal yield remains over the entire shelf life, even when stored or transported lying down.

Application

  • Installation of fireproof doors and windows.
  • Sealing of fire retardant joints in walls and ceiling.
  • As part of the ‘Soudal Fire Range’ assortment for penetration seals and joints.
  • Sealing of all openings in roof constructions.
  • Apply of an acoustic baffle.
  • All foam applications in static joints.

Application method

Shake the aerosol can for at least 20 seconds. Fit the gun on the adapter. Surface should be free from grease and dust. Moisten surfaces with a water sprayer prior to application. For non-conventional substrates a preliminary adhesion test is recommended. Fill holes and cavities for 65 %, as the foam will expand. Repeat shaking regularly during application. If you have to work in layers repeat moistening after each layer. Fresh foam can be removed using Soudal Gun & Foamcleaner or acetone. Prior to using the Gun & Foamcleaner, test whether surfaces are affected or not. Especially plastics and lacquer or paint layers can be sensitive to this. Cured foam can only be removed mechanically or with Soudal PU Remover.

Can temperature: +5 °C - 30 °C
Ambient temperature: +5 °C - 30 °C.
Surface temperature: +5 °C - 35 °C

  • M1 Emission classification of building materials.

Installation

We have technical representatives who provide assistance in the selection and specification of the products on this site and should be consulted for exact installation and product suitability. Ensure an early engagement with ourselves, designers, main contractor and specialist installers before any installation. Other trades and/or manufacturers may need to be consulted. 

Maintenance

All interested parties, designer, specifier, main contractor and specialist installers should provide access to allow the fire stopping seals to be regularly inspected and maintained, as well as records kept of such maintenance at minimum periods of 12 months, as required by the Regulatory Reform Order, and repaired if necessary. Reference should be made to ASFP TGD 17 – Code of Practice for the Installation and Inspection of Fire Stopping.

Competency

It is vital that those entrusted to design or install a fire stopping product have the necessary levels of competence to undertake the task professionally and thoroughly. The level of competency required will be commensurate with the expected complexity of the building. All designers must eliminate, reduce or control foreseeable risks that may arise during installation, construction or maintenance when preparing or modifying designs. Clients should ensure that the principal designer and principal contractor carry out their duties under CDM regulations. The ASFP foundation course in passive fire protection provides essential knowledge as part of demonstrating competency and understanding in this key fire protection specialism.
