New range of polyurethane foams 14 June 2018

INDEX Fixing Systems has introduced a new range of polyurethane foams – which it highlights is an indispensable product due to its great versatility. These foams serve mainly to fill and seal gaps in the assembly of doors and windows, as well as thermal and acoustic insulation.

Because of its easy application, polyurethane has become one of the most used materials in construction and has been introduced for DIY and amateurs.

INDEX’s new PU foam range is available in several different formats – manual application by the nozzle or gun application using the PU-PI gun. The range has many benefits including performing an expansion of around 40 – 45 litres, which assures the product’s high efficiency and as a result the cost-effectiveness is increased. The foams also offer controlled expansion stability, without porosity and with high density. Because of this, the products provide higher insulation and adherence.

Within this range are the following products, each of them indicated for a specific use fulfilling the following characteristics:

  • PU-SC/PU-SP – multipurpose polyurethane foam:
    For sealing, assembly, filling, insulation and attaching. Useful for a wide range of applications, it ensures excellent adhesion to all construction materials, except PTFE, silicone and polyethylene. It also offers excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, and is resistant to water and to ageing.
  • PU-FP FIRESTOP – fire-resistant polyurethane foam:
    For sealing, assembly, filling, insulation and attachment in areas where fire resistance is desired or required. It ensures excellent adhesion to all construction materials, except PTFE, silicone and polyethylene. It provides full fire resistance. This foam is particularly recommended for applications in electrical installations, emergency doors, safes, library archives, hospitals and so on.
  • PU-TP ROOFING TILES – polyurethane foam for attaching tiles:
    For easy attachment of tiles on the base of the roof. This foam can be used at low temperatures and ensures excellent adhesion to all construction materials. The foam makes it possible to attach tiles on the roof in a precise, fast and efficient manner, compared to traditional methods. The foam can be used in temperatures of up to -5°C. It also offers thermal and acoustic insulation.
