    PFC Protecting the Underground

    13th November 2012

    PFC Corofil has been manufacturing passive fire protection materials since 1962.

    They have a wide product range including linear gap seals, cavity barriers and penetration seals for the construction industry. PFC Corofil takes a holistic approach in developing new products looking at their performance in terms of fire resistance, acoustics and air tightness. This has helped them gain specifications and orders for prestigious projects including Kings Cross, the Jubilee Line extension project and St Pancras Station development.

    PFC Corofil has launched a new compliant Intumescent Sealant and High Expansion Firestop Sealant for MetroRail (London Underground) projects. These specially formulated products are the best performing sealants in their class for reduced levels of toxic gas and smoke emissions, whilst retaining high levels of fire resistance, flexibility and durability of the seal.

    PFC's LUL Intumescent Sealant is suitable for use in fire resistant joints and service penetrations in underground applications. PFC Corofil HE Firestop Sealant is recommended for firestopping around service penetrations in compartment walls.

    Other products which have LUL approvals are PFC Corofil Firestop Compound, C144 firestop strips, profile blocks and C500 Cavity Firestop.

    C144 linear gap seals and C500 Intumescent Expansion Joint have been used on the Jubilee Line extension and other major rail terminus projects (E.g. Kings Cross).

    PFC Corofil Firestop Compound has been used for service penetrations in recent station upgrade works and are renowned for its excellent technical service and back-up with over 50 years experience in passive fire protection.
