Application / Installation

Quelfire QF1 may be used in all types of building and is compatible with most building materials. QF1 is simply added to clean water either in a bucket or a concrete mixer, mixed and poured or trowelled into position.

Quelfire QF1 Mortar is formulated to retain some flexibility on curing; it does not set hard like concrete or cement mortar. It is intended for use to seal gaps around electrical cables where this physical characteristic allows subsequent installation of additional cables without the need to use masonry drilling equipment. A screwdriver or similar tool can be used to form a hole through the seal; the new cable can then be threaded through and any residual gap filled with a further application of QF1 Fire Protection Compound.


One Square metre at 160mm thickness requires approx. 8 x 20kg sacks of Quelfire QF1 and will provide a 4 hour rated fire seal.
