Product Overview

3M Fire Block Foam FB-Foam is a ready-to-use foam firelock designed to help prevent the spread of flames and smoke in residential Type V and commercial non-rated construction. This product is intended to resist the free passage of flame and the by-products of combustion within the concealed space of a floor, ceiling or wall cavity by restricting the movement of air, fire and smoke. Also acts as a draft stop to restrict air infiltration and movement. Meets current fire blocking sealant requirements of the International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC) and state and local codes based on the IBC and IRC. 3M Fire Block Foam FB-Foam is recognized as a requirement to the methods prescribed by IBC and/or IRC codes for maintaining the integrity of penetrations of fire blocking and for draft stopping.

Is this foam commercially rated to where I can use it in a office building?

Asked by: buildingtech
Generally , no. Its cheaper than the •ASTM E814 / UL 1479 approved stuff, but don't risk it. Use ABESCO FP200 for fire rated seals.

12 oz. Fire Block Foam is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 15.

This may be used to supplement fire rating of existing walls or I would recommend this stuff for general blocking fumes (garages) and air in risky areas. Be aware it is NOT fire rated. I.e. when walls must be 1-2 hr, rated for multi family, it wont pass. Fire rated stuff is pink, one is made by ABESCO, FP200. Check w/ your code enforcement. and make sure it has ASTM E814 / UL 1479 on label.

Even with trying to keep the can in the correct angle most of the time, it blew through propellant and left me with a half can of uselessness. Other products work at any angle, I wish this one stood up to finishing the job.
