- Provides fire, water and smoke protection in construction and perimeter joints
- Works as acoustic barrier by minimizing noise transfer
- Broad temperature range when applying
- High tack adhesive sticks to many common building materials
- Acts as an immediate barrier to water leakage
3M™ Fire and Water Barrier Tape is an elastomeric fire, water, smoke and sound tape. When installed properly it can act as a barrier to water leakage and airborne sound transmission, while helping to control the transmission of fire, heat and smoke.
Seals and protects in two simple steps—select the type, size and amount of tape appropriate for your application
3M™ Fire and Water Barrier Tape can provide up to 4-hours of fire protection in construction joints per ASTM E 1966 (UL 2079), 3-hour fire protection in perimeter joints per ASTM E 2307 and 2-hour fire protection in through-penetration applications per ASTM E 814 (UL 1479).
- Fire protection in construction and perimeter joints
- Fire protection in through-penetration applications
- Acoustic barrier
- Barrier to water leakage
Lay tape in place, then peel off release liner and adhere tape to surface
This elastic material maintains performance with up to +/- 50% movement capabilities. It has a high tack adhesive that sticks to most common building materials and exceeds the AAMA 711 minimum for adhesion in peel. In addition, it can be installed in temperatures as low as 0°F (18°C) and as high as 120°F (49°C). Adding to its versatility is a unique adhesive that bonds to damp surfaces. This product acts as an acoustic barrier by minimizing noise transfer (STC-Rating of 54 when tested in a STC 54-rated wall assembly), meets the intent of LEED® VOC environmental guidelines and also acts as an immediate barrier to water leakage passing the ASTM D 6904 rain resistance test. Our 3M™ Fire and Water Barrier Tape complies with the current requirements of the International Building Code (IBC). NFPA 5000 and NFPA 101.
