Hodgson Fire Foam is a single component flame retardant construction foam that conforms to DIN 4102-part 1 class B1: EN 13501-1+A1:2010 and EN13501-2+A1. Fire resistance for periods up to 4 hours.
Application and ambient surface temperature range: +10°C to +30°C
Can / applicator temperature range: +10°C to +30°C (+20° for optimal performance).
Shelf life: 12 months, always store and transport in an upright position (in order to avoid blockage of the valve), in cool dry conditions between +5°C and +30°C.
Note: Carefully read the health and safety information contained in the material safety data sheet before use.
Before use: put on protective gloves.
Surface preparation: All surfaces must be clean, and free from oil, grease and loose materials.
Spray / moisten surfaces with clean water before use as this will improve both expansion and adhesion of the product.
Shake the can of foam thoroughly (for at least 30 seconds) before application in order to thoroughly mix the foam components.
Screw the applicator onto the can. Only using the can upside down, with the valve facing down: commence foaming at the lowest point of the joint and proceed carefully until familiar with the extrusion rate. Fill the cavity about half full of foam as post expansion will totally fill the cavity.
After application the foam can be cut as soon as it has cured. Uncured foam can be removed using acetone or PU foam cleaner but care must be taken not to damage surfaces.
Hodgson Fire Foam must be protected from exposure to UV light after curing (e.g. with paint or plaster). Failure to do so will degrade the foam.
The rate of cure is fully dependant upon temperature and humidity. Low temperatures and humidity will slow the rate of cure. Poor adhesion to low surface energy materials such as PE, PP, PA, silicone and PTFE can be expected.
Hodgson Fire Foam is part of a full range of fire resistant sealants and tapes designed for the professional user.
