Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground. Store in tightly closed original container. Store in a cool, dry place with adequate ventilation. Keep away from incompatible materials, open flames, and high temperatures. Avoid contact with oxidizing agents. Vulcanises at room temperature on contact with moisture in the air. For further information, refer to Section 10: "Stability and Reactivity". Suitable containers: Steel drums coated with epoxy-resin.Please consult the Safety Data Sheet of this product.


CAF FR 55 is a one component, ready to use silicone elastomer intended to produce fire-stop sealing and bonding seals.

1 Part RTV Oxime


CAF FR 55 withstands fire for 4 hours when used in seals with a width of up to (curtain wall or floor). It remains neutral to construction materials, including porous surfaces. It is an elastomer with an average modulus of elasticity which therefore subjects bonding surfaces to low stresses and gives longer life to sealing joints.
Processing and smoothing of seals is made easier due to the sealant's outstanding rheological characteristics.
CAF FR 55 can be used on clear glass, metals, wood, PVC, cellular concrete, granite, etc.
CAF FR cured, withstands diluted bases and salt mist, together with the temporary action of common solvents and hydrocarbons with, for the latter, slight swelling of the sealant during exposure.
As opposed to this, its characteristics can be modified by acids or chemical oxidising agents. Its mechanical and adhesion properties are not affected by the sun's rays, snow, rain, ozone and allow it to provide its functions over many years.

CAF FR 55 is especially suited to producing fire stop seals and sealing and bonding in construction and glazing applications, notably for:

  • Heavy prefabrication and traditional masonry.
  • Curtain walls, panels and facades, metal and PVC joinery.
  • Air ducts, cable or piping passages.
  • Terrace or fireplace seals.
  • Elastic seal in glazing, on aluminium, wood, PVC, etc.
