Fire Rated Adhesives - Do they exist?

We have many enquiries asking for a fire resistant or fire proof adhesive and the big question is always whether they exist. The answer is not a straight forward "Yes". When a product is tested in view of achieving a Fire Rating, it is the whole structure which is tested and certified, not the individual components. So if you needed a door to pass a Fire test, you would need to assemble and bond the components and then submit to the testing house. All being well, the complete assembly will then pass the test. What we can say is that a number of our adhesives have been components within an assembly which has successfully complied with the Fire certification requirements. Please call for more details.
