3M™ Fire and Water Barrier Tape
  • 3M™ Fire and Water Barrier Tape is a self-adhered membrane that provides a tough, elastomeric coating. 
  • This product has a unique pressure-sensitive adhesive that aggressively sticks and stays stuck to a wide variety of substrates at both high and low temperatures and will even adhere to damp surfaces. 
  • This material is used to firestop perimeter joints (curtain wall), construction joints, and through penetration openings. 
  • 3M™ Fire and Water Barrier Tape, when installed properly, will act as a barrier to water leakage and airborne sound transmission, while helping to control the transmission of fire, heat, and smoke before, during, and after exposure to fire.
