How to use acoustic intumescent sealant
Surfaces to be sealed with acrylic intumescent acoustic sealant must be clean, dry and free from dust, dirt, frost, grease and other contamination. Cut both the cartridge tip and applicator nozzle to the required diameter and angle, screw nozzle onto cartridge. Apply sealant with applicator gun ensuring good surface contact is achieved by forcing sealant into the joint to be sealed. If necessary, tool within 5 minutes of application using a spatula dipped in soapy water, apply sufficient pressure to ensure good contact of the sealant against the joint surfaces. Clean tools with water immediately after use. Wash hands after use.

TECHNICAL DATA SHEET
PRODUCT Oscar Intumescent Sealant
Oscar Intumescent Sealant is a halogen free, polymer emulsion based sealant that swells when subjected to temperatures in excess of 125oC and forms a char coat that restricts the passage of smoke and fire. It is easily applied and dries to a flexible and smooth surfaced material which is readily over paintable. It has excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates and will not harden or crack with age.
Oscar Intumescent Sealant has been independently tested to the following assessments:
- BS EN 1366-3: 2004 & BS EN 1366-4: 2006 Tested at Bodycote Warrington Fire, report No. 173658A achieving up to a 4 hour integrity and insulation rating for a range of linear and penetration seals.
- an indicative fire test based on BS476 Part 20 at Warrington Fire Research and achieved up to a 4 hour fire rating (integrity) for a range of vertical and horizontal joints up to 35mm wide between various non-combustible construction materials. A 1 hour fire rating (integrity) was achieved for a range of vertical joints up to 25mm wide between combustible materials (timber).
- BS EN ISO 140-3. 1995 Measurement of Airborne Sound Insulation of Building elements.
Oscar Intumescent Sealant forms a fire and smoke seal in joints up to 35mm wide without slumping. It is ideal for sealing joints in and around internal partitions, lap joints in fire-rated cladding and for sealing between fire doors and fire-rated walls. It is recommended that a sealant depth of at least 8mm be applied.
If the sealant is to be overpainted, building regulations may require a fire resistant coating.
Oscar Intumescent Sealant is not suitable in joints where movement exceeds ± 7.5% of joint width, or in external joints.
Movement Accommodation: ± 7.5% Conforms to ISO 11600 7.5P
Skinning Time: 15 mins to 1 hour depending on conditions.
Cure time: 5 to 15 days for 15mm X 20mm bead.
Hardness Shore A: 25 - 30
Temperature Resistance: -20oC to +60oC (intermittent)
Paintability: With most paints.
Application Temperature: +5oC to 40oC
Cleaning: Uncured sealant with water.
Shelf Life: min. 18 months when stored in unopened containers as recommended.
Specific Gravity: 1.60 – 1.64
To achieve a high quality joint, clean all surfaces, remove dust and ensure surfaces are dry. Non porous surfaces should be degreased using a suitable degreasing agent. Highly porous surfaces should be sealed with a suitable primer. Apply masking tape to each side of joint and gun sealant firmly into joint, smoothing off with a wetted spatula. Masking tape should be removed within 10 minutes of application.
1 tube is sufficient to produce approx. 1m using a 20mm x 15mm bead.
Store in cool dry conditions. PROTECT FROM FROST.
