Firetape Ceramic is a specialised tape based on ceramic fibres which is supplied on single strand reels for use when glazing a wide variety of insulating and non-insulating fire resistant glass types into internal screens and doors manufactured from timber or steel. It has a special pressure sensitive contact adhesive which allows it to be repositioned before final fixing. It can also be capped with Silfix® U9 to prevent possible degradation of the tape by glass cleaning solutions.
Application temperature range: +5°C to +30°C
Shelf life: 12 months when stored flat in original packaging in cool, dry conditions.
Surface preparation: All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from frost, grease and loose materials.
Application: Firetape Ceramic is designed to be applied directly to the surface. No special primers or sealers are required. If firetape ceramic is to be capped
with Silifx® U9, apply the tape to the rebate upstand and bead approximately 3mm below the sightline. If Firetape Ceramic is to be applied without a silicone capping, apply the tape to the rebate upstand and bead, level with the sightline.
