Hand Held B2 Expanding Fire Foam everbuild

Hand Held B2 Expanding Fire Foam

A high performance Polyurethane Expanding foam

Product Description

EVERBUILD FIREFOAM B2 HANDHELD is a quick setting one part polyurethane foam with fire resistance properties. The foam expands on application to up to 50 times its original volume and meets the requirements of DIN 4102 Part 1 for Construction Materials and BS476 Part 20. Fire rated up to 2 hours in certain joint configurations. Copies of the independent test certificate, Warrington fire report number 160902 are available on request.

Once cured, the foam can be cut, sawn or plastered over after only one hour providing the working temperatures (can and surfaces) are between +5 to +25oC, ideally 20oC.

Surface Preparation

Ensure all surfaces are clean, sound and free from dust and loose particles. Moisten surfaces to be sealed with water. This assists the curing process.

 

 

Application

ALWAYS WEAR PROTECTIVE GLOVES.

Shake can well before use (about 20 times).

Carefully fix nozzle. Do not overtighten or force.

ALWAYS USE CAN UPSIDE DOWN.

Only partially fill cavities, as the foam will expand to fill the remaining space. Any excess foam can be removed whilst still wet with EVERFLEX FOAM CLEANER. Cured foam must be removed mechanically. Always remove nozzle from can and clean immediately after use with EVERFLEX FOAM CLEANER. When used for fixing doorframes, supports must be used until the foam is fully cured.

 

Please note:

When transported in cars, keep in boot, out of direct sunlight.

When removing cured foam from skin, take care not to damage with abrasives.

Grease skin with body lotion or similar.

 

IMPORTANT – Re-use is only possible by cleaning the nozzle and valve tip with EVERBUILD DUAL PURPOSE FOAM CLEANER before the foam has cured. Do not push any object into the valve as the contents may explode.
