Everkem Diversified Products Introduces Flame Tech FB(TM) Polyurethane Fireblocking Foam Sealant
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Continuing their commitment to providing quality, market-driven solutions to better serve their customers, Everkem Diversified Products is proud to announce the addition of Flame Tech FB Fireblocking Foam Sealant to their extensive and innovative line of products.
Flame Tech FB Fireblocking Foam Sealant is a long lasting, premium closed cell insulating foam sealant specifically formulated for draft, smoke and fireblocking applications in single family residential construction. Recognized by UL as an alternative fireblocking material and colored orange for ease of inspection, Flame Tech FB Fireblocking Foam Sealant expands up to 3 times the original bead size to seal off gaps and voids around wires, pipes, ducts and similar openings in non-rated single family construction.
“Having pioneered the fireblocking market over 18 years ago with our Fire Caulk and Fire Seal 136 products, adding our Flame Tech FB Fireblocking Foam will offer a complete line of fireblocking solutions and satisfy customer needs where the foam has been approved by their local municipalities,” said Jason Lynch, President of Everkem Diversified Products.
Flame Tech-FB offers several advantages over traditional fireblocking materials. Most notably is its cost effectiveness. Many traditional fireblocking methods are time consuming, laborious, and difficult to properly apply. Flame Tech-FB is easy to apply – simply point and shoot. Additionally, Flame Tech-FB possesses superior yield rates compared to fiberglass, caulks, and other fireblocking materials. In fact, one 12 oz. can of Flame Tech FB may yield the equivalent of 15 tubes of caulk.
Flame Tech- FB is tack free in as little as 10 minutes, cuttable after approximately 1 hour, and fully cures in 12 to 24 hours. FlameTech-FB is currently available in 12 oz, straw dispensed cans, with additional packaging options are on the horizon.
Fireblocking is required by the International Building Code for Type V single family residential construction. It is not to be used as a firestop in commercial construction, in any hourly rated assemblies, where a firestop is required, or any application or geographic location where its usage is prohibited by building codes. Always consult with local compliance authorities prior to use. Flame Tech-FB Fireblocking Foam Sealant is for professional use only and should be used with proper training and personal protective equipment.
