BI-CELLULAR SOFT CELL POLYETHYLENE BACKER ROD
TITAN FOAM is a soft, grey, non-gassing, pliable backer rod, with an impervious outer skin, used as a backing for elastomeric and other cold applied sealants. TITAN FOAM controls the depth of the applied sealants and ensures cross-sectional hour-glass configuration.
TITAN FOAM is suited for specialty applications such as irregular and varying joint widths where standard closed cell backer rods are not appropriate. Common applications include but are not limited to: concrete expansion and contraction joints, curtain walls, parking decks, bridge and highway construction, pavement maintenance, window glazing and log home chinking.
COMPOSITION AND MATERIAL
TITAN FOAM is an extruded polyethylene bi- cellular foam product which when punctured per ASTM C 1253 does not exhibit any out-gassing. TITAN FOAM has an impervious outer skin that resists moisture. It is easily compressible, flexible and pliable for easy installation. It is furnished in a wide variety of sizes listed in section 8 under packaging information.
Prior to installing TITAN FOAM, all joints must be free from all contaminants such as curing compounds and form-release agents, as well as loose and foreign materials. Install TITAN FOAM under 25% minimum, 50% maximum compression to the depth recommended by the sealant manufacturer. Before applying sealant, all joints must be clean and dry.
TITAN FOAM is an inert material and therefore is compatible with virtually all known cold applied sealants including silicones, polyurethanes, acrylics, polysulfide, and butyl.
