Sealants for the containment of smoke and fire

There’s more to fire protection than smoke alarms and extinguishers. For decades, Bostik has manufactured a range of fire protection sealants used for the containment of smoke and fire in public buildings, offices, rolling stock, factories, warehouses and many more applications.

 

The protection afforded by these products is usually as a result of their ability to swell up, or intumesce, under the influence of heat. In doing so, they form a ‘char’ which possesses considerable resistance to the passage of smoke and fire.

 

These properties make the Bostik range of fire protection products ideal for protecting the integrity of compartments by fire stopping the gaps that occur around fire doors and window openings, at structural and expansion joints, and penetrations for services in walls and slabs.
