PRODUCT:

1-1/2 in. diameter poly backer rod, soft with closed-cell skin, 6' lengths, price / 6' piece. (color can be gray or charcoal and is not selectable)

APPLICATIONS:

  • General Purpose Sealant backing
  • Together with Self-leveling sealant
  • Expansion joints
  • Irregular joints
  • Metal and pre-cast panels
  • Around perimeters of door and window frames
  • Coping and glazing joints
  • Log Homes

DESCRIPTION:

  • Round poly foam joint filler and backing for sealants
  • Provides controlled depth for sealants
  • Compresses easily for accommodating joints of varying widths
  • Does not stick to sealants. Exceeds ASTM standards for bond breaker materials
  • Consists of both open and 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.

Joint Width Diameter
3/16" - 1/4 3/8"
3/8" - 1/2" 5/8"
1/2" - 3/4"      7/8"
3/4" - 7/8" 1-1/8"
7/8" - 1-1/4"   1-1/2"
1-1/4" - 1-1/2"  2"
2" - 2-1/2" 3"
2-1/2" - 3"  4"

APPLYING BACKER ROD:

1. Joint fillers have three major functions:

  • Controls depth of the sealant in proper relation to joint width
  • Provides backing against which the sealant is applied, forcing the sealant to the sides of the joint
  • Prevents 3-sided bonding, ensuring proper function of sealant

2. 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.

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

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

5. 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.

PRIMING:

1. Follow suggestions for joint-sealant application as directed by sealant manufacturer.

2. Where priming of the joint is necessary, primer should be applied only to the joint surfaces and allowed to dry before Backer-Rod is placed. DO NOT prime Backer-Rod
