The appearance of installation foam in the construction market made a revolution in construction. This is a completely new material. Installation foam is considered a sealant based on polyurethane, which is produced in convenient aerosol packaging. Today it is used by both professional builders and summer residents. When working with it, no energy sources are needed. Foam penetrates into hard -to -reach places and hardens. Even modern heating systems often turn to use mounting foam and fix the main components of heating systems. Very often in the houses a warm floor is installed under linoleum. This provides your warm apartment, chic conditions, as well as a beautiful flooring. There is no need to worry about warmth in the house more.
The mounting foam enters the consumer in cylinders with a liquid preliminary and gas, displacing it with a propellen. When the contents of the cylinder release, the mixture comes into contact with air and moisture and polymerization begins – the foam freezes and turns into polyurethane foam.
It is able to fix and connect parts of structures, performs the functions of the seal, sound insulator and heat insulator.
When the foam begins to expand, it is able to get to the most inaccessible joints and cavities, and she immediately begins to grasp. Earlier for such work, a pachet with cement was used. The work was very time -consuming.
The installation foam is considered universal material, there are already many options for applying. It can be used with all common building materials – wood, plaster, stone, glass, concrete. You can not contact the mounting foam with polyethylene, Teflon, polypropylene, silicone.
The basic requirements for mounting foam are good sticking, not draining from the surface. When the foam dries, the degree of its shrinkage should not be high. Good foam does not crumble at low temperatures, it is elastic. The cylinder must weigh at least 850 g.
