3M™ Fire Protection Solutions have been there from the beginning of the firestop industry and we continue to come up with new ways to make structures safer.
We have a broad, innovative line of caulks, putties, sealants, foams, devices and large opening solutions for mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) penetrations and membrane applications.
We offer a broad platform of flexible duct wrap and endothermic mat products for fire-resistant duct, critical electrical circuit and structural steel applications.
We provide a comprehensive portfolio of fire, smoke and sound resistant and watertight sprays, caulks, sealants and tapes for interior construction joint and perimeter/curtain wall applications.
Easy to install, requiring no backing material in wall or floor applications. Paintable, sag-resistant formula expands in volume up to five times at installation; intumescent foam also expands when exposed to fire. Firestop tested and rated up to two hours.
Flexible solution installs quickly and easily, even on complex shapes. Significantly slows heat transfer in a fire, protecting structural steel components for up to four hours, critical electrical components for up to three and wall opening membranes for up to two. Easy to maintain and inspect.
Acts as a barrier to minimize smoke and sound transfer in non-fire-rated wall and floor joints. High-tack adhesive bonds to most common building materials in a variety of conditions, including damp surfaces and temperatures down to 0°F.
Fire barrier management is a critical component of any healthcare facility. As your trusted brand and life safety partner, 3M proudly provides:
Every extra second a fire is held in check is one more second for people to get to safety. As your trusted source for fire barrier solutions, 3M offers:
Keeping electrical and control systems operational in the event of a fire is critical for an orderly shutdown and evacuation. As your oil and gas fire protection provider, 3M has:

In 1974, the movie Towering Inferno (produced by Irwin Allen) sparked the imagination of Richard Licht, a 3M product developer who passionately believed 3M technologies could be used to improve the safety of multi-story buildings. Several devastating fires — including the 1980 MGM Grand Hotel fire that killed 84 people and injured 679 — inspired Licht to develop the first firestop products based on existing 3M intumescent technology.
Recognized by many at 3M as “one of the fathers of firestopping,” Licht also helped develop some of the first firestop requirements in commercial building codes. He worked tirelessly to make the codes more progressive to improve the safety of all buildings.
Comprehensive fire protection includes fire detection, fire containment and fire suppression. 3M Fire Protection Products address fire containment and are an integral part of a well-designed fire protection system. Our understanding of the spread of fire, smoke and toxic gases helps us continue to create preventative and affordable firestopping solutions.
3M helps write the first specific test standard for through penetration firestop systems (ASTM E 814)
3M introduces fire protection wraps for grease, air, fume and plenum ducts
3M launches first firestop sealants to meet new UL Water Leakage Test, W Rating-Class 1 requirements
3M named #1 brand preferred by installers of firestop products.
The 3M Firestop Management System (FMS), featuring 3M Fire Protection Products, is a web-based application that helps facility managers control their operations, improve compliance performance and simplify the inspection process. The easy-to-use software helps provide real-time management of critical information, such as relevant firestop documentation, worksite permits and daily passes. It also helps track the status of firestop installations and generate reports with critical firestop system and contractor status information. The Firestop Management System is a versatile system that allows significant user configurations, ultimately creating a faster and easier management tool for facility managers and their teams.
