Foamsekure® XD

Foamsekure® XD security glazing tape is a unique foamtape of extraordinary shear strength and long-term adhesion, comprising of a closed cell polyolefin foam with a unique differential adhesive system specifically designed for security glazing into timber and PVCu windows and doors. Foamsekure® BMS is used for bonding coated timber and PVCu glazing bars and PVCu trims. Foamsekure® BMS can also be used for mounting lightweight components typically found in the automotive, caravan and electrical industries. The exposed side adhesive is specifically designed for adhesion to PVCu and other low surface energy sash and frame materials and the liner adhesive is specifically designed for adhesion to glass. These surface specific adhesives provide optimum performance, weather resistance and longevity.  Double-sided closed-cell foam tape.

INSTRUCTIONS

Surface preparation: All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from frost, grease, loose materials and flat.

Application Foamsekure® XD: It is recommended that propan-2-ol (IPA) is used to clean the substrates. Ensure the cloths used are clean and allow the surface to dry prior to application of the product. Foamsekure® XD is designed to be applied directly to the joint surface and no special primers or sealers are required. Timber surfaces should be coated with at least one coat of a base stain or paint primer and allowed to fully dry prior to application of Foamsekure® XD. Apply adhesive face down to one of the joint surfaces in the required position aligned flush with the sightline. The tape should then be cut and butted closely together at the corners, do not overlap the tape. Apply pressure to the tape to ensure a suitable seal is achieved. Care must be taken during application to avoid any stretching of the material. Upon removal of the release liner apply Silfix® U9 along the butt joint.

Application Foamsekure® BMS: It is recommended that propan-2-ol (IPA) is used to clean the substrates. Ensure the cloths used are clean and allow the surface to dry prior to application of the product. Foamsekure® BMS is designed to be applied directly to the joint surface and no special primers or sealers are required. Timber surfaces should be coated with at least one coat of a base stain or paint primer and allowed to fully dry prior to application of Foamsekure® BMS. Apply adhesive face down to one of the joint surfaces in the required position; aligned flush with the glazing bar.
