This flexible sealant is used to protect and prevent the spread of fire, smoke, gases and water. This product is ideal for applications like through firestop penetrations and construction joints, because it is used for simple penetrations like those around metallic pipes or conduits.

Designed with fire rating protection in mind, it is flexible enough to withstand the shifts that can occur in joints.
No maintenance is required; in the future, if you need to change the sealant, simply cut through the existing seal and with a knife and reseal the opening with more Nelson CLK™.


It is offered in two forms:

The non-sag caulk can be troweled while the self-leveling grade is better suited for floor applications. The non-sag can be applied using a conventional caulk gun, bulk loader or by trowel. For larger applications it can be pumped directly from the pail.
The self leveling formula fluid can be poured into place in floor applications. Apply the required depth of sealant beginning at the edge of the opening and ensure that the sealant makes complete contact with the inside surface of the opening, as well as the surface of the penetrating item.
