Our family of UL approved
Metacaulk
®
Firestopping Products
is specifically
designed to fill voids in construction joints and around penetrations in fire-rated walls or floors. Many have intumescent
properties and expand when exposed to heat, forming a high-strength insulating char.
Metacaulk
®
products contain a
combination of biocides that protect the product in both the cured and non-cured state against mold growth. Our intumescent
firestop products comply with required environmental exposure testing of accelerated aging and high humidity, as per UL
1479
Fire Test of Through-Penetration Firestops. In the event of fire,
Metacaulk
®
sealants will restrict the spread of flames,
smoke, hot gases and water. Whatever your application, we provide the most cost effective products to fit your every need.
After test burns, assemblies are immedi-
ately subjected to a hose stream test to
complete the ASTM E-814 (UL 1479) or
ASTM E-1966 (UL 2079) procedure.
A computerized control room monitors all
phases of test burns as specified by ASTM
E-814 (UL 1479) or ASTM E-1966 (UL
2079).
Two on-site test ovens allow for quicker re-
sponse to customer needs for UL approved
systems and speed the development of
new systems.

,
founded in 1937, is a leading manufacturer of firestopping products. In 1995, an on-site fire test laboratory
was built for the purpose of conducting UL witnessed burns for through-penetration and construction joint assemblies. Our
laboratory has been designated by UL under their Witness Test Data Program for fire testing to UL 1479 & UL 2079.
