WITH the onset of winter, rapid and effective onsite sealing of windows in temperatures as low as - 10°C is provided by advanced sealing foil technology from leading foam tape manufacturer, ISO-CHEMIE.
The flexible humidity variable sealing foil ISO-CONNECT VARIO SD is now available in full surface self-adhesive variants, COMPLETE and COMPLETE DUO, providing high performance sealing of window and door frame connecting joints in cold conditions.
This enables onsite installation work to continue even in poor weather or wintry environments, saving time and securing 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 is part of a new generation of window sealing products that not only adapt to seasonal variations but also provide an excellent external weather seal that surpasses 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%.
ISO-CHEMIE is one of Europe’s main producers of impregnated foam sealants, specialising in the manufacturer of foam products from polyethylene (EPE), polypropylene (EPP) and polyurethane (PUR) using the latest production techniques.
