Application

Designed to provide a fire resisting seal around services penetration through masonry or concrete walls and concrete floors at least 120 mm thick, and which have at least the same fire rating as that required for the penetration seal.

Description

A gypsum cement, high strength firestopping compound used to fill openings in rigid walls and floors for the passage of services. Provides up to 240 minutes' fire protection and can also support temporary loadings.

PROMASEAL Fire Compound is a specially formulated powder mortar and is supplied as a dry white powder for on-site addition of water. It can be poured or trowelled into position for sealing openings required for the passage of services through walls and floors, preventing the spread of fire and smoke into another compartment.


Features and benefits:

  • For sealing openings required for the passage of services.
  • Up to 240 minutes' fire resistance for walls and floors (BS 476 Part 20).
  • Good acoustic insulation.
  • Can support temporary loadings.
  • Non-combustible.
  • Can be mixed on site for either pourable or trowel application.


Fire resistance:

  • The fire performance will depend on the thickness of the finished seal.
  • Even when fully cured, the fire compound permits the provision of additional or replacement services without the need to replace the complete installation, yet still retaining its strength properties.
  • When installing the fire compound in floor penetrations, temporary or permanent shuttering will usually be required. In all instances where the span of the fire compound exceeds 600 mm, additional reinforcement, e.g. rebars, will be necessary.
