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.
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).
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.
