CAFCO®BLAZE-SHIELD® II

CAFCO® BLAZE-SHIELD® II is a cement based spray-applied fire resistive material (SFRM) designed to provide fire resistive ratings for structural steel and concrete in commercial construction.

Applied directly to steel beams, columns and deck, or to concrete surfaces, this product's outstanding value and proven fire resistive performance make it an excellent choice for concealed commercial environments.

BLAZE-SHIELD® II is applied exclusively by Northeast Fireproofing, you CAFCO® licensed and trained contractor, and our technical staff works closely with building team members to meet all your fire protection needs.


THERMAL PROPERTIES

The unique formulation of CAFCO® BLAZE-SHIELD® II makes it a very effective thermal insulator. This benefit is important in reducing heat loss, particularly when applied to the underside of a roof deck, which may allow a reduction in roof insulation.


ACOUSTICAL PROPERTIES

As an efficient sound-absorbing material, BLAZE-SHIELD® II adds value to the fire protection application in areas where high-noise levels are anticipated. Typical acoustical performance is as follows:

Product Thickness Base NRC Rating*
BLAZE-SHIELD® II 1/2 inch(13mm) Deck & Beam 0.75
BLAZE-SHIELD® II 1 inch(25 mm) Solid 0.75
