A Firestop Putty Pad provides acoustical sealant for wall penetrations in the form of a release lined pad that is easy applied to electrical boxes or other penetrates. The pad is conveniently sized to fit standard single or double gang boxes with no cutting or piercing required. Faced on both sides with a poly liner, Firestop Putty Pads are easily applied with no mess or excessive residue.
Firestop Putty Pads may also be used in through penetrations for wire, cable, etc. Strips of the pad may be cut off and packed around any wall opening. Pad strips may also be applied to penetrate in a mortar system to create a firestop as well as to absorb movement due to expansion and contraction or resonate vibration. No other product is as easy and versatile to use, and has tested and proven fire and acoustical resistance.

I have the same question, it should be OK to coat a recessed housing light fixture with fire putty pads, right?

Unfortunately, stopping sound from penetrating through can lighting is very difficult, and not advisable when it comes to this putty. The problem comes from having to completely seal openings and joints to stop the noise. If there is a tight seal around the can it builds up too much heat and pops the bulb.

for ceiling application, can you use these putty pads on or around recessed can lights?
