about us

DAP UK sales is a family run business dedicated to supplying quality Fire Rated Sealants & Insulation products to the Construction Industry. Specifically set up off the back of DAP Building & Construction Services Ltd who until recently apart from some preferential sales, used the products for supply and installation only.

It has now become clear that in an ever changing market place and with the increase for the requirement for a weather seal to be provided on top of the Fire barrier, it was time to offer the SL-100 & GG-200 Sealants to the open market as an option for this.

Products for sale primarily include the SL-100 Self levelling Fire Rated Sealant for horizontal applications and the GG-200 Gun grade Sealant for Vertical applications. We also offer a Fire Stop insulation MW 300 to go with the Sealants to offer Curtain Wall and Mechanical / Electrical penetrations Fire Stopping. All tested to BS 476 Part 20 and 22. All other products listed on the NUCO Inc. website are also available to purchase, please enquire for stock and current availability.

The SL-100 is being favoured on an increasing number of jobs as a water seal being applied to the surface of most Fire Barrier Insulation. It is easily applied with simple hand tools and does not require the use of expensive spray pump machines. Please refer to the images of a recent installation for Focchi in London. Siderise Insulation, a major company within the Fire Stop Industry who manufacture the Lamertherm FS 120 System, only approve the use of the SL-100 as their weather seal silicone option. Please contact us for other Insulation suitability.

    Technical Documentation:

    Why Firestop?

    The purpose is to contain a fire to the smallest area possible and inhibit smoke from traveling to other areas of the building. Ultimately, by containing or slowing down the spread of smoke and fire, you will increase the time for evacuation and allow for the firefighters to react. The goal of firestopping is to SAVE lives and minimize building damage.

    Are NUCO Inc. products certified UL, ULC and cUL?

    Should I use GG-200 or SL-100 on a floor service penetration?
