Alpha Chem Hand Held Expanding Foam seems like an excellent choice for a variety of applications in construction and home improvement. Here’s how it can be effectively utilized:

  1. Filling Large, Irregular, or Awkward Gaps: The foam’s expansive properties make it well-suited for filling gaps of varying sizes and shapes. It can expand to completely fill irregular or awkward cavities, ensuring a secure and thorough seal.
  2. Fixing and Insulating Window and Door Frames: The foam can be used to secure and insulate window and door frames, helping to prevent drafts and improve energy efficiency.
  3. Fixing Boards: It can provide a strong bond when fixing boards in place, ensuring stability and durability.
  4. Insulating Between Brickwork and Cladding: The foam’s insulation properties make it suitable for insulating gaps between brickwork and cladding, helping to maintain a consistent indoor temperature.
  5. Around Ductwork and Through Cavities: The foam can be used to seal and insulate around ductwork and within cavities carrying pipes and cables, enhancing thermal and acoustic insulation.
  6. Joint Backing Material: The foam can serve as a backing material for low-expanding joints, providing structural support and preventing material wastage.

 

 

APPLICATION

  1. Shake the Can: Before using the foam, shake the can well to ensure proper mixing of the contents.
  2. Moisten Surfaces: Moistening the surfaces and the foam can improve adhesion and shorten the cure time of the foam.
  3. Attach Straw Adapter: Screw the straw adapter onto the valve of the foam can.
  4. Activate the Foam: Turn the can upside down and press the valve to activate the foam. Always keep the can upside down during application.
  5. Filling Holes: Fill the hole halfway with foam. The foam will expand after application, so filling it halfway ensures that the hole is completely filled after expansion.
  6. Fixing Door and Window Frames: If you’re using the foam to fix door and window frames, use wedges to hold the frame in place until the foam is fully cured. This typically takes approximately 24 hours.
  7. Cleaning Fresh Foam: If you need to clean fresh foam, you can use Alpha Chem Foam Cleaner.
  8. Cleaning Cured Foam: For cured foam, mechanical cleaning methods should be used.
  9. Disposal: It’s your responsibility to dispose of all packaging correctly.

 

LIMITATIONS

  • Store and transport the product in an upright position.
  • Avoid storing the can in temperatures exceeding +25°C or dropping below +5°C, as this may reduce its shelf life.
  • Allow the foam can to equilibrate to room temperature for a minimum of 12 hours before applying.
  • When exposed to ultraviolet light, the cured foam may experience discoloration.
  • To achieve optimal outcomes for outdoor applications, consider painting or coating the cured foam.
  • Lower temperatures can lead to reduced foam expansion and longer curing times.
  • The user bears the responsibility of confirming the product’s appropriateness for the intended use.
