Lubrizol's STI’s SpecSeal® Series SSS Intumescent Sealant Added to FGG/BM/CZ™ System Compatible Program

Published on 2010-07-01. Author : SpecialChem

CLEVELAND -- FBC™ Building Solutions of The Lubrizol Corporation announces that STI's SpecSeal Series SSS intumescent sealant is chemically compatible with FlowGuard Gold®, BlazeMaster® and Corzan® CPVC piping systems and has been added to the FGG/BM/CZ™ System Compatible Program.

SpecSeal Series SSS sealant is a latex-based, high solids firestop compound. When properly installed, it will effectively seal penetration openings against the spread of fire, smoke, toxic gasses and water. When exposed to high temperatures or fire, SpecSeal Series SSS sealant expands aggressively to quickly close off voids left by the burning or melting of combustible materials.

It is available in tube and sausage containers as well as in two and five gallon pails.

The FGG/BM/CZ System Compatible Program is designed to test and monitor ancillary products on an ongoing basis to ensure chemical compatibility with FlowGuard Gold, BlazeMaster and Corzan CPVC piping systems, all of FBC Building Solutions.

All designated products qualify for the program by undergoing rigorous testing, which assures the product will not fail as a result of chemical incompatibility. Because CPVC products are made with base resins having different molecular weights and varying chlorine contents and compound additives, the FGG/BM/CZ System Compatible Program can verify chemical compatibility only with the products with which they have been tested.

Product manufacturers agree to not change the formulation of the products accepted into the System Compatible program without advance written notice and to submit the products to periodic testing to ensure the product remains chemically compatible.

The FGG/BM/CZ System Compatible Program is the only known program of its kind in the industry designed to increase user confidence and help eliminate the guesswork about which products are chemically compatible. The program is in active use in the United States, Canada, Mexico, 25 European countries, the United Arab Emirates, India and China.
