Type of Foam Spray Sealant
- Spray Can – Dipensed using an adopter or straw or Pipe : one straw is preattached to the can .
- Gun grade – Dispensed using a Hand held PU Gun
Using PUF Spray Can
- Clean the application area with water spray.
- Moisten the area with Water spray. PU foam adheres to almost all surfaces that are strong, clean and free of dust and grease. Only silicon, oils, greases, polyethylene, teflon or similar surfaces are not suitable to be applied on.
- Surface must be dampened enough to ensure that the foam sealant finds adequate moisture for its hardening process. Otherwise, it could impair the adhesion and edge adhesion.
- Attach the Straw on the can.
- Shake the can vigorously for 20 to 25 times.
- Hold the can upside down such that the valve faces downwards. This is the only way to completely empty the can.
- Press the trigger, foam will rush out of the can under pressure.
- Keep shaking the can.
- Plan the work such that entire can material is consumed in one go, i.e., after opening the can, it should be completely consumed. This is recommended because whatever is left will get cured inside the can and thus go to waste.
- The foam cures in 30 – 40 minutes depending upon weather conditions.
- After curing , extra foam can be cut with a sharp knife.
- Foam sealant is paintable. It is not UV resistant – should not be exposed to direct sunlight. If unavoidable – paint the foam to protect from sunlight.
Using Gun Grade PUF sealant
- Clean the application area with water spray.
- Moisten the area using the same water spray. Foam sealant adheres to substrates that are clean and free of dust and grease.
Uses of Foam Spray Sealant
- Filling of joints, seams and cracks in partition walls with ceilings.
- Structural space between window and door frames and walls.
- Structural and fitting space between prefabricated construction elements
- Around cables and pipes, penetrations through walls and ceilings.
- Gluing panels/ insulating sheets.
Which Industries Require This Product?
Foam spray sealant is a verstile product used for sealing, bonding, gap filling, sound insulation, thermal and electrical insulation, waterproofing etc.
