Mastic & Foams | Astro PFP FR Acrylic
For in-stock items orders received before 2pm (Monday-Friday) are generally dispatched for delivery on the following working day (Monday-Friday).
Designed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke through joints and openings in fire rated walls and floors (including openings formed around building service penetrations); the Astro PFP FR Acrylic will also maintain the acoustic design performance.
When subjected to atmospheric conditions, the sealant cures however, it will retain a degree of elasticity for joint movement. Under fire exposure, The Astro PFP FR Acrylic creates a robust fire seal by the formation of a durable intumescent char.
The Astro PFP FR Acrylic can be used with a suitable filling material i.e. stone wool or Astro PFP FR backing material in order to secure correct width to depth ratio, and to reduce the shrinking of the sealant during curing. Minimum depth and maximum width of the joints are included in the installation instructions.
When testing pipes, one can choose not to cap (or close) the pipe, or cap the pipe inside the furnace, or outside the furnace, or on both sides. The configuration chosen depends on the intended application of the pipe and/or the installation environment.
The code defining if a pipe is capped is stated after the fire classification. For instance, EI 60 C/U which means the pipe was capped inside the furnace, and uncapped outside the furnace. The test configuration defines the approvals possible.
Our engineering judgment based on EN 1366-3:2009 are:
|Intended use of pipe||Pipe end condition4|
|Rainwater pipe, plastic||At drainage||U/U1)|
|Not at drainage||C/C2)|
|Drainage or sewage pipe, plastic||Ventilated drain||U/U1)|
|Drain w/water trap||U/C1)|
|Not at drainage||C/C2)|
|Pipe in closed circuit (water, gas, air, electricity etc.)||C/C2) 3)|
|Flue gas recovery system pipe, plastic||U/C1)|
|Pipe with open ends and ≥ 50cm length on both sides, plastic||U/U2)|
|Pipe supported by suspension system, metal||Fire rated support||C/U1)|
|Waste disposal shaft pipe, metal||U/C1)|
1) Suggested in EN 1366-3:2009. 2) Astroflames's judgment based on tests. 3) Metal pipes should have fire rated support. 4) U/U classified fire seals cover C/U, U/C and C/C. C/U classified fire seals cover U/C and C/C. U/C classified fire seals cover C/C.
