A sealing strip made of cellular rubber, PE foam or PU foam is a versatile seal variant for use in the various sectors of the building industry. Special properties, such as high-temperature resistance, nonflammability and tensile strength, characterize the different grades and qualify them for processing as sealing strips for road, canal and tunnel building. Sealing strip is produced by us customer specific and is manufactured to suit the purpose and requirements of the customer. PE foam is a cheaper alternative to cellular rubber. A variety of special types, such as co-polymer foam, are also processed into sealing strip.
Other areas of application in the building industry for sealing strips, die-cuttings or blanks made of cellular rubber, PE foam and PU foam can be found in ground works, specialized civil engineering and bridge building. Foam can be used in these cases for joints, insulation and in the field of acoustics. Thanks to the special properties of temperature resistance, nonflammability, oil resistance and tensile strength our foams are able to serve almost any purpose. The self-adhesive backing of the articles is effected with adhesive with or without a carrier material, on the basis of acrylate or rubber and with a siliconized paper or foil masking. Selection according to the intended use.
