FPC is a modified closed-cell silicone foam on a fibreglass backing, and is available in continuous rolls. FPC offers extraordinary fire blocking properties including the ability to resist burn through when the foam side is exposed to a 843°C flame for long periods. It also has low flame spread.

Applications for this product include anywhere where a fire barrier is needed. In addition the material offers acoustic insulation properties, and is available with a variety of acrylic and silicone adhesives for mounting purposes. Meets FAR 25.855(c), DAN 1226.02 and ABS 5026 with material 1.6mm thick.

Health risk information: In the form supplied, FPC does not present an immediate health risk. However, processing and handling can produce airborne respirable fibres, inhalation of which may cause serious respiratory disease. For further information, please see Safety Data Sheets.
