NovaBond XS110BFR is a flame retardant, black foamed acrylic tape with a red filmic liner. The product
utilizes the latest in anti-combustible technology, consisting of an acrylic foam laminated with an acrylic
adhesive, both of which are impregnated with the fire-resistant additives. When NovaBond XS110BFR comes
into contact with a flame, it will self-extinguish, without melting or dripping, and, when used as a bonding
medium, as intended, in a final finished construction it should not present an increased risk of flammability,
smoke generation or toxicity.
Any demanding bonding application of a wide variety of substrates where flammability, smoke generation or toxic gas production are critical to a product not being fit for purpose, such as: –
• Construction – Fixing Cladding, Wall & Elevator Panels
• Rail Sector and London Underground – Bonding signage, wall panels, trims, tactiles etc. in stations, tunnels and even rolling stock
• Marine & Offshore – Bonding signage, fixing Cladding, wall panels, ballistic protection etc.
• Aerospace and M.o.D. – Mounting of trims, panels & signage, trolley construction, equipment fascias etc.
• Vehicles – Mounting of internal trims, panels & badges.
• Electronics – Mounting components, facias, and component housings.
Formal and Indicitive Flammability, Smoke & Toxicity Testing
NovaBond XS110BFR has undergone formal testing for the following tests at Element Warringtonfire;
• ISO 4589-2: 1999*
(Generic Industry test, with a high relevance to the Rail Sector to test how much oxygen is required to sustain the material to combust)
*Further details available upon request
NovaBond XS110BFR performed exceptionally well during the Oxygen Index Test and achieved a R24 classification for hazard level 3 applications with an Oxygen Index of 39.3%. The tape was tested using as a stand-alone tape with fully exposed surfaces, to provide accurate results of its fire retardant properties. As a reference, the most stringent Rail specifications accept an Oxygen Index of 32% and The London Underground accept an Index of 34%
NovaBond XS110BFR has also completed indicative testing at Element Warringtonfire for the following European and British Standards;
• EN 13501-1: 2007 + A1: 2009*
(Construction Industry test to measure spread of flame, smoke generation and burning droplets)
• EN 45545-2: 2013 + A1: 2015*
(Rail Industry test to measure spread of flame, heat released and toxicity)
• BS 6853: 1999 Annex B.2 (Withdrawn)/S1085 Attachment A.2*
(Rail Industry / London Underground test to measure toxicity)
• UL94: 2013*
(US Underwriters Laboratory simple test for flammability and self-extinguishing properties)
All the above testing has been completed to provide end users with an indication of the tapes overall fire performance as a stand-alone tape in order to provide them with the peace of mind that the product has the credibility for use in terms of flammability, smoke generation and toxicity. This testing has been undertaken in good faith to demonstrate suitability for use in the customer’s final finished product construction and we believe that NovaBond XS110BFR, when used as a bonding medium to bond 2 or more substrates will not present any detrimental effect that will contribute to the final construction failing any fire testing in terms of flammability, smoke generation or toxicity. As with all Fire Retardant Testing, it is the users’ responsibility to test the tape within the complete and final product construction, in order to prove the suitability of the product within its intended use.
