It will transfer into foam above 200°C and it compliant with fire rating specification of BS EN 1366-4: 2006. It is almost odour free and is not corrosive towards metals. After applications, it forms a tough plastic elastic rubber by evaporation of water from the sealant.Especially for indoor joints where high demands are to be met as a fire resistant seal:
Joints in fire retardant constructions in buildings, houses and ships.
