Abu Dhabi Civil Defense has awarded certification to Dolphin-Fire Stop Silicon Sealant.
The Al Muqarram Group-owned brand is a manufacturer of a range of products covering construction insulation, automotive, and HVAC industries.
The sealant can resist fire for up to four hours and protect against temperatures up to 400 degrees Celsius.
"As a UAE-based local manufacturer of products, we are proud to introduce the Dolphin-Fire Stop Silicone Sealant, which is a unique product in its capability to resist fire for longer hours and at higher temperatures,” said Safdar Badami, MD of Al Muqarram Group.
“Using the product will help shore up fire resistance in buildings, and for the construction industry of the UAE, it will offer a much-needed value addition.
"Beyond the proven efficiency and value addition of the product to the building material and construction industries, it is also significant to note that it is a UAE manufactured product, contributing to the growth of the manufacturing sector of the country in general.”
The certification builds on the same approval from Sharjah Civil Defense earlier this year.
