UNIQUE Firestop Sponge Foam blocks flames and acts as an insulator from the heat of an engine or fuel cell fire. Made in the USA and available in 4 sizes.

Description

UNIQUE’s Automotive Firestop Sponge Foam looks like ordinary foam rubber, but it does so much more! Used as directed, our Sponge Foam can block the flame of an engine or fuel cell fire and can keep the flame from touching the driver. This is especially important when there is an opening in the firewall for a moving part such as a throttle or steering rod, openings that often exist right under the driver’s legs. These openings can be encapsulated in our Automotive Firestop Sponge Foam which will not catch fire and allows for movement. This material does not intumesce (swell up) like the putty in our Sleeves or harden like the UNIQUE Expanding Fire Stop Foam but actually blocks a fire and acts as an insulator from the heat. See the Installation Pictorial.

Installation Pictorial

sponge-install-1(320w) Select the proper size sponge for the opening. Reduce or enlarge the opening as needed.
sponge-install-2(320w) Based on the size of the shaft or rod in the opening, clip enough of the material from the top of the triangles to allow the shaft or rod to move freely in the sponge when installed in the firewall.
expandingfoam-install6(320x320) Compress the sponge 10 to 20% and push it into the firewall.
sponge-install-4(320w) After a 24 hour period, you may come back and trim off the excess and paint the foam.
sponge-install-5(320w) If the shaft or rod displaces the sponge, trim more material where required.
sponge-install-7(320w) A view from the driver’s seat looking down at the steering shaft in a simulated engine fire. Typically, there would be flames shooting towards the driver’s knees. Our automotive sponges would contain these type fires on the other side of the wall!
