Fire Barrier Sealant Market: Overview

  • A fire barrier sealant is a high-performance, ready-to-use, gun-grade, latex-based, intumescent sealant that dries to form a monolithic firestop seal. The seal also acts as a barrier to airborne sound. Fire barrier sealants help control the spread of fire, smoke, and noxious gases before, during, and after exposure to fire.
  • Fire barrier sealants firestop blank openings and penetrations passing through fire-rated floors, floor/ceiling or wall assemblies, and other fire-rated interiors of a building. The unique intumescent property of this material allows fire barrier sealants to expand and maintain a firestop penetration seal for up to four hours from exposure of penetrants to fire. Fire barrier sealants exhibit excellent adhesion to a wide range of construction substrates and penetrants.
  • Walls and floors need to be appropriately sealed to prevent the passage of fire and smoke. While sealing penetrations passing through compartment walls and floors, approved and tested products should be used so as to re-establish fire resistance of the compartment.

Rising Demand from Building & Construction Sector to Drive Fire Barrier Sealant Market

  • Fire barrier sealants are ideal for use in sealing of single or multiple through-penetrations in fire-rated constructions. Fire barrier sealants are typically used in mechanical, electric, and plumbing applications to firestop openings created by the following penetrations in fire-rated floors, ceilings, or walls: metallic pipes, plastic pipes (excluding CPVC), conduits, power and communication cables, cable trays, bus ways, combos, insulated pipes, and HVAC ducts. Fire barrier sealants are also used to firestop blank openings and static construction joints.
  • Usually unseen but always at work, passive fire protection systems are built into the structure of a building to safeguard building occupants. If properly installed, passive fire protection measures protect a building’s structure and limit the spread of fire and smoke by confining it within the building.
  • Fire barrier sealants provide fire stopping and fire resistance across a building, ensuring that the building and its occupants are safer in the event of fire
  • Thus, rise in building and construction activities is estimated to boost the global fire barrier sealant market in the near future

Different Types of Fire Barrier Sealants

  • Fire-barrier sealants are suitable for use in schools, hospitals, churches, high-rise office buildings, and other public-use buildings to ensure safe and orderly evacuation in the event of fire
  • Fire barrier sealants are classified into the following types: acrylic, silicone, polyurethane, and others. The others segment includes hybrid sealants.
  • Fire barrier sealants create firestopping systems for expansion joints and through-penetrations that, when properly installed.

Restraints of Global Fire Barrier Sealant Market

  • Installation of fire barrier sealants requires skilled workforce. However, several building contractors do not specialize in the installation of fire barrier sealants. This forms a challenge that needs to be addressed by manufacturers of fire barrier sealants.
  • Thus, proper training is required for specialists that install fire barrier sealants. This acts as a restraint of the global fire barrier sealant market.
