Flexible PUR foam impregnated with a fire resistant (DIN4102, Teil 1, Class B1) polymeric dispersion, suitable for internal or external draught & weather sealing applications. Supplied in pre-compressed rolls with a self-adhesive backing on one face, the product is inserted into the gap where it expands to form a seal. The degree of compression# in situ determines the effectiveness of the seal.
Typical applications include:
Highlighted items are normally available ex-stock - other sizes are cut to order and may be subject to minimum order quantity
* Maximum expansion subject to ą 10% tolerance Colour: Black
Performance: # when used at 80% compression will provide a weatherseal to 600Pa. Lower compression ratios may be suitable for less demanding applications. Greater gaps may be sealed using 2 or 3 sections laminated together check width to gap ratio is not too great - EXPANDING FOAM GAP CHART
Storage, Handling, Application
Store rolls horizontally between +5ēC and +25ēC in dry conditions.
No special surface preparation or primers are required but contact surfaces must be clean of dust, dirt, loose matter, grease or oils. Care must be taken not to stretch the material especially at joints or around bends and corners. A continuous seal can be provided by forming taper lap joints or on thin sections by simply overlapping material.
The material will begin to expand gradually according to temperature. If required, the rate of recovery may be delayed by cooling in a freezer immediately prior to installation. Alternatively, the recovery can be accelerated by warming the material (after INSTALLATION) using an indirect heat source.
