  • Glazing

  • Around perimeters of door frames

DESCRIPTION:
  • Round poly foam joint filler and backing for sealants.
  • Provides controlled depth for sealants.
  • It compresses up to 60%. Compresses easily for accommodating joints of varying widths.
  • Does not stick to sealants. Exceeds ASTM standards for bond breaker materials.
  • Consists of closed cells on the inside with a skin-like outer texture. Non-stick closed cell skin. High moisture resistance.
  • Compatible with all know types of sealants including butyl, polyurethane, silicones, tri-polymer, polysulfide, acrylic, etc.
SIZING SOFT BACKER-ROD:
Select a backer-rod diameter that is approximately 25% larger than the width of the joint.

 
APPLYING BACKER ROD:
1. To install, compress backer-rod into the joint before sealants are applied. Joint or opening should be clean and dry and free of obstructions. Install backer-rod using a blunt probe or a plain faced roller to force the rod to the desired depth.

2. Compress to a depth of about 1/2 of the width measured at the crown of the backer rod.


3. A template or roller gauge may be used to control the depth at which the rod is placed.

4. Don't stretch, puncture or tear backer-rod during installation but gently force into the joint so that the backer-rod fits tight against the sides of the joint.
