Fitherm Glazing VT is a paper-like product based on non-combustible ceramic fiber and vermiculite particles bonded by a small amount of organic binder. Fitherm VT can be used for sound, heat insulation in various areas such as car industry, ship building and civil building construction.
As a glazing tape for fire-rated glazing Fitherm Glazing VT provides excellent heat insulation and mechanical protection for fire glass in thermally non-insulated glazing systems. When exposed to heat, the product expands and forms a thermally insulating mat of low density. While expanding Fitherm Glazing VT generates pressure perpendicular to the glass pane, so the glass will be clamped, to prevent the heat softened glass sink and ensure the integrity of fire systems. Fitherm VT glazing tape can be laminated with a self-adhesive tape on one side for fixing.
Glazing Tape Fitherm VT can be used in the following areas:
- For wrapping round building elements,piping,ducting etc.
- To fill gaps and cavities in constructions against fire
- As a barrier to prevent the penetration of fire
- As insulation tape in non-insulated fire glazing systems ＞ 60 minutes
Fitherm VT glazing tape is available as flexible rolls in the following standard dimensions:
Thickness: 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm and 10mm;
Width: 10mm, 15mm and 20mm;
Length: 10 meter with or without self-adhesive backing. Other measures on request.
