CSR FireSeal Limitations

Not recommended for continuous submersion or below water line use.

For exterior applications, protect from rain until sealant has developed a thick skin.

 

Installation

  1. Substrates must be clean, dry and free from oil, grease, release agents, dust and loose material. Cut the end of the FireSeal sausage and place in a suitable sausage gun.
    Extrude sealant smoothly into prepared joint, ensure sealant is fully tooled into the joint and free of entrapped air pockets.
  2. For fire rated applications, joint width should be between 10mm min. and 40mm max. (depending on application and substrates).
  3. Minimum joint depth should be 10mm or half the width for joints wider than 20mm. Install an open cell polyurethane backing rod in joints to control sealant depth. Ensure joint is fully tooled so there are no encapsulated air bubbles in the sealant.
  4. CSR FireSeal sealant cures by water evaporation; therefore cure rate is dependent on humidity, ambient temperature and joint size. Typically, on standard joints, FireSeal will form a thick skin within 24 hours.
  5. Full cure can be expected after 7 days. In humid or cool conditions the sealant cure time will be longer.
  6. Allow the sealant to form a thick skin before painting with a flexible acrylic paint. For best results, and to minimise paint cracking, the sealant should be allowed to fully cure for seven (7) days before painting.

For assistance with installation, try searching for a Gyprock plasterer, builder or repairer under the Locations tab.

Clean Up

Clean tools and equipment in water before FireSeal cures. To remove cured sealant, tools will need to be soaked in water followed by mechanical action.​
