USE AND INSTALLATION

This category covers fill, void or cavity materials, which are proprietary materials investigated for use in joint systems, perimeter fire-containment systems, firestop systems, and firestop systems in marine applications. Except as specified below, properties of the fill, void or cavity materials other than the capacity to provide a degree of fire resistance to openings provided in fire-resistive walls, decks, bulkheads or floors have not been investigated.

These materials are intended for installation at a job site in accordance with the application instructions provided with the product and with the instructions specified in the individual joint system, perimeter fire-containment system or firestop system.

The fill, void or cavity material thickness published in the fire-resistance designs is measured wet and may be susceptible to a percentage of shrinkage during the curing process. Firestop systems are investigated after the fill, void or cavity materials are fully cured. Refer to the individual certifications for the investigated percentage of shrinkage.

Authorities Having Jurisdiction should be consulted before installation.

Where indicated in the individual certifications, products covered under this category have also been evaluated by ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES).

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

For additional information, see Fire-resistance Ratings (BXRH) and Marine Products (AAMP).

REQUIREMENTS

The basic standards used to investigate the systems in which these products are installed are ANSI/UL 1479, "Fire Tests of Penetration Firestops," ANSI/UL 2079, "Tests for Fire Resistance of Building Joint Systems," and ANSI/ASTM E2307, "Standard Test Method for Determining Fire Resistance of Perimeter Fire Barriers Using Intermediate-Scale, Multi-story Test Apparatus."

Where indicated in the individual certifications, fill, void or cavity materials have additionally been investigated to ANSI/ASTM E136, "Standard Test Method for Behavior of Materials in a Vertical Tube Furnace at 750°C," and/or ASTM C1241, "Standard Test Method for Volume Shrinkage of Latex Sealants During Cure."

The basic standard used to investigate products used as firestop systems in marine applications is the FTP Code, IMO Resolution MSC.307(88), Annex 1, Part 3, "Test for 'A', 'B' and 'F' Class Divisions."

UL MARK

The Certification Mark of UL on the product or on the smallest unit container in which the product is packaged is the only method provided by UL to identify products manufactured under its Certification and Follow-Up Service. The Certification Mark for these products includes the UL symbol, the words "CERTIFIED" and "SAFETY," the geographic identifier(s), and a file number.
