CEMCO HOTROD Type-X is a compressible intumescent firestopping that provides 1 and 2 hour fire-ratings for both dynamic and static joints according to UL-2079 (for both standard walls and shaft walls) and is sound tested according to ASTM E90.
• HOTROD has a rectangular profile and is easily compressed into the deflection gap between the edge of the drywall and adjoining structure.
• HOTROD is red in color and is easily identified by the inspector.
• HOTROD takes the place of BOTH fire and sound sealant and will not shrink, pull away, or harden over time.
• HOTROD allows the OPTIONAL application of joint compound to by applied evenly, providing a smooth and consistent esthetic finish look for head-of-wall joints.
