A unique polyurethane installation foam that meets the key needs of construction professionals worldwide

The higher the yield and the extremely fast setting. These are one of the most important requirements that are placed on installation foams by the construction professionals. However, not all products on the market can offer these benefits that are relevant to every master. That is the reason, why we made sure that the installation of windows and doors and the sealing of any cavity in construction is fast, smooth and of high-quality, at the same time ensuring high thermal and acoustic insulation. The innovative solution is the polyurethane installation foam of new generation “FOME FLEX ULTRA FAST 75L”, which is the fastest-setting foam on the market and has an extremely high yield.

The polyurethane installation foam “FOME FLEX ULTRA FAST 75L” is a truly unique product of new generation. It has a free blowing yield of around 75 litres. This cannot be offered by similar products on the market.

The most common volume of high-yield foam from other manufacturers is up to 65 litres. However, even this is achieved through extremely high secondary expansion of up to 100%. This means that the inflatable seam doubles in size, hindering correct placement of the seam, as you need to anticipate how much space you need to leave for it. Otherwise, the expanded foam will over-expand and damage the structure due to expansion pressure.

“FOME FLEX ULTRA FAST 75L” is a completely different solution. This product has only 30% secondary expansion, but still a higher yield. This makes it easier to form the seam, the foam does not break the door or window structure and the foam is accurately deflated. The product is also resistant to mould and mildew, high and low temperatures – it can be used from -60°C to +100°C. The ambient temperature ranges from -0°C to +35°C and can be used in rain or snow.

This foam has a dense and homogeneous structure, which provides excellent thermal and acoustic insulation performance. It has a thermal conductivity of 0,036 W/(m*K) and a sound reduction index of 63 dB.

The product is also unique because of its extremely fast setting, which allows a faster completion of works. The cutting time for this foam is 10 minutes, compared to 30-40 minutes for similar products. Importantly, “FOME FLEX ULTRA FAST 75L” has a final set time of only 1.5 hours. In contrast, other foams on the market have a setting time of around half a day.

These features of “FOME FLEX ULTRA FAST 75L” make it possible to cut away unnecessary residues, cover foam joints, plaster, paint and do other necessary works faster. The product therefore has a wide range of applications. The foam is ideal for sealing windows and doors, for high thermal and acoustic insulation of pipes, and for filling cracks, splits, cavities and gaps. Likewise, it is suitable for sealing joints in roofs, walls and floors, and for all window and door installation works.

The use of this product is easy and standardised – like other polyurethane foams for installation and sealing. The work surface must be thoroughly cleaned and moistened. Shake the bottle vigorously and screw the gun on. Then turn the vial upside down. To adjust the flow rate of the installation foam spray, you will need to turn the valve at the end of the pistol grip. Then fill the cavity with foam.

If the foam is used at low temperatures, the vial must be warmed up to +18C by placing it in warm water or in a warm room. Residues of undried foam are best cleaned with “Foam Cleaner Fome Flex”. It is advisable to remove hardened foam mechanically.

That’s it. Take advantage of the unique benefits of “FOME FLEX ULTRA FAST 75L” and try a product that is recognised and appreciated by construction professionals around the world.  We will make sure that every work for which this product is designed is fast, high-quality and smooth.

Window and door sealing: How to choose the best installation foam for the highest-quality work?

Repair professionals require a number of specifications for the foam used to seal the gaps between the door or window frame and the building wall. They are concerned with the product’s secondary expansion, its elastic force, elasticity, coefficient of thermal conductivity, rate of cure and, of course, the product’s yield. Fome Flex 7 DOORS WINDOWS ELASTIC PISTOL FOAM, a single-component polyurethane installation that combines the best of all these features. It is a unique product for professional sealing of windows and doors and provides the best thermal and acoustic insulation.

The market offers a wide range of options for window and door sealing professionals looking for a modern, high-quality, and reliable product for their work. However, Fome Flex 7 DOORS WINDOWS ELASTIC PISTOL FOAM, a single-component polyurethane installation foam, outperforms its competitors in every respect.

In particular, the product’s permanent flexibility and lowest thermal conductivity of just 0.030W/mK ensure sustainability and excellent thermal insulation. In addition, the foam seam can withstand up to 25% displacement, making the product perfect for moving structures.

Fome Flex 7 DOORS WINDOWS ELASTIC PISTOL FOAM also has a high Noise Reduction Index, which reduces the sound level to 63 dB. This figure is one of the best in the market. Regular foam reduces the sound level to 58–60 dB.

This foam also has a particularly low secondary expansion without the need for force to be applied to window and door frames. Certified product testing protocols confirm this. Note that the product also polymerises very quickly. The foam can be cut in as little as 25 minutes without damaging its structure and maintaining the best seam properties. This uniqueness of the Fome Flex 7 DOORS WINDOWS ELASTIC PISTOL FOAM considerably speeds up and simplifies the craftsman’s work.

The product seals windows and doors without being weather-dependent. With an ambient temperature range of -5°C to +35°C, it works in rain or snow, so work doesn’t have to stop even in the coldest months.

These advantages are not the only relevant ones. With the rapid rise in the cost of building materials, many people are looking for a product with the highest possible yield. And the Fome Flex has a great one. The yield of this installation foam allows you to produce up to 40 metres of seams per bottle, enough for 7 standard doors.

Fome Flex 7 DOORS WINDOWS ELASTIC PISTOL FOAM is an environmentally friendly product that is completely harmless to human health. It meets the requirements of the A+ French VOC Regulation and the Emicode EC1 Plus certificates.

The product is also standardised and easy to use with its many benefits. The foam canister must be shaken vigorously, and then the gun must be screwed on. Next, thoroughly clean and wet the work surface and turn the canister upside down with the valve. To adjust the flow rate of the installation foam spray, turn the valve at the end of the gun handle. Then, fill the cavity with foam.

If the product is used at low temperatures, the canister must be warmed to +18°C by placing it in a warm room or immersing it in warm water. The best way to clean any undried foam residues is with the Fome Flex Foam Cleaner. Hardened foam must be removed mechanically.

Using these instructions and utilising the best properties of Fome Flex 7 DOORS WINDOWS ELASTIC PISTOL FOAM, the sealing of windows and doors will be done perfectly. This is the quality guarantee that Tegra State’s single-component polyurethane installation foam provides to professionals worldwide.

This single-component polyurethane installation foam guarantees high quality and matches  requirements  of professionals worldwide.
