Surface Preparations

For good adhesion, the substrate must be sound, clean and dry. Any surface damage, dirt, dust, loose particles or other contaminants that may inhibit adhesion must be removed from the surfaces prior to application of the sealant. This can be accomplished with a thorough wire brushing, grinding, sand blasting or solvent washing/priming depending on the situation.

Tremco recommends that surface temperatures be 40 ̊F (5 ̊C) or above at the time the sealant is applied. If sealant must be applied in temperature below 40 ̊F (5 ̊C), please refer to the Tremco Guide for Applying Sealants in Cold Weather that can be found on our web site at www.tremcosealants.com.

Priming

TREMstop Fyre-Sil adheres to common substrates without primers; however, Tremco always recommends that a mock-up or field adhesion test on the actual materials being used on the job be conducted to verify adhesion. The field adhesion test can be found in appendix X1 of ASTM C-1193, Standard Guide for Use of Joint Sealants.

Application/Installation

TREMstop Fyre-Sil is used in firestop systems. It is easily applied using conventional caulking equipment.

Clean Up

Cleaning can be accomplished with solvent such as IPA or MEK while sealant is in an uncured state.
