SEAL IT THIS WINTER WITH NEW ENERGY EFFICIENT TAPES

Sustainability Tue, Oct 20, 2020 10:45 AM

As winter approaches, improved energy efficiency of the entire window installation, not just the frame, can be provided by the ISO BLOCO 600 range of self-adhesive sealant tapes from ISO-Chemie.

The pre-compressed tapes, which have been independently tested and are both BBA and Passivhaus certified, can be used on joints up to 42 mm, providing a high-performance weather tightness and thermal/acoustic insulation seal for fenestration applications as the weather gets cold.

Quickly applied by hand around the frame during fitting, ISO BLOCO ONE 600 are energy rated weather tight thermal and acoustic tapes which reduce heat loss and noise ingress to a U value better or equal to the frame. This assures property and homeowners that a comprehensive ‘A’ rated installation can been completed rather than just an ‘A’ rated window supplied.

The tapes can be used to seal joints providing excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties. Product can accommodate a temperature range of -30° to +90° and is impermeable to driving rain with a minimum of 600 Pa, making it one of the best performing tapes in its class. Once installed, a building will also be better protected from elemental factors like wind, dust and moisture ingress by accommodating the changes in structural movement caused by environmental, cyclical and settlement factors.

Quick and easy-to-apply, with excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties, ISO BLOCO 600 can be used to provide effective gap seals to accommodate expansion and movement while remaining permeable to trapped water and water vapour in extreme weather conditions – in the same way as a flexible breathable style building façade material.

Andy Swift, ISO Chemie’s sales and operations manager - UK & ROI, said opting for foam sealant tapes offers an up-sell opportunity to installers as they can upgrade their offering against competitors. He added: “Most property owners don’t realise that they have energy inefficient window windows until they feel a cold draught from somewhere, or their bills increase due to extra heat required to keep the room warm.

“This is because a new window installation may have a fantastic U value, retaining warmth, but the window itself is sealed within the building with a poorly performing silicone seal. This allows the heat in the room to be unable to penetrate the glass and accelerating its escape around the perimeter of the frame.”

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. More at https://www.iso-chemie.eu/en-GB/home/
