WITH the onset of winter, rapid and effective onsite sealing of window or door frame connecting joints in minus degree temperatures or in wet conditions, is provided by advanced external* sealing foil technology from foam tape manufacturer, ISO-CHEMIE.
The flexible humidity variable sealing foil ISO-CONNECT VARIO SD, available in full surface self-adhesive COMPLETE and COMPLETE DUO variants, enables onsite installation work to continue even in poor weather or wintry environments.
Developed for the extreme cold of the Scandinavian market, the foil adheres quickly, even to rough surfaces such as hemp blocks, down to – 8°c when wet seal would freeze at zero. This saves time and provides a high quality joint sealing solution, even if the foil remains exposed to the elements for up to six months due to construction work delays.
ISO-CONNECT VARIO SD not only adapts to seasonal variations but also provide an excellent external weather seal, which exceeds UK Building Regulations and airtightness in domestic and commercial buildings when used as an internal seal.
The COMPLETE and COMPLETE DUO variants enable the sealing foil to be located in place and repositioned if necessary after initial application before the full strength of the adhesive develops and takes effect.
Furthermore, the risk of leaks from poor or patchy adhesive application can be avoided while the foil can be plastered over immediately after installation, providing further time and cost saving benefits.
The risk of soiling on windows, surrounding construction work and on the building itself due to residual adhesive is also significantly reduced.
COMPLETE and COMPLETE DUO variants of ISO-CONNECT VARIO SD also comply with the specifications of the plastering guideline ‘Plastering window sealing foils’, which recommends a minimum bonding surface area of more than 75%.
*As an external seal, it must be covered over after six months.
ISO-CHEMIE specialises in the manufacturer of foam products from polyethylene (EPE), polypropylene (EPP) and polyurethane (PUR) using the latest production techniques.
