Yes, all Fireban products are rated to AS 1530.4. However, a 4 hour FRL (Fire Resistance Level) rating is dependant on the sealant width, depth and direction. Consult Bostik for specific joint dimension advisement related to your specification.
Yes, all Fireban products are paintable. However, it is advisable to wait until full cure before painting over the seal and recommended that a paint adhesion test is performed in an inconspicuous area prior to full coverage.
Fireban Hybrid can be applied to wet surfaces and will cure in wet conditions. This product is also recommended for humid conditions with high levels of atmospheric moisture as it will not experience bubbling during cure.
Fireban Acrylic is not recommended for external applications that will be exposed to excess moisture. Fireban Acrylic can be used externally if protected by a coating (such as weatherproof paint) or undercover where it will not be exposed to inclement weather.
Fireban sealants have been tested in multiple configurations to achieve a balance between cost effective and high resistance solutions. FRL ratings on control joints and penetrations can be enhanced by sealing joints from both sides, filling the depth of the joint with Fireban Expanda Foam or backing the joint with an approved fire rated backing rod.
Yes, Fireban Expanda Foam can be used as a single product solution for control joints. However it is recommended to be used in conjunction with a Fireban sealant to enhance the FRL of the joint and the joint movement capability.

For more information, consult the Bostik Fireban test literature, Bostik Fireban Manual or call 1800 BOSTIK to get in contact with the Technical Services Team.
