Everkem Diversified Products Launches Thermal Seal: All-In-One Window & Door / Fireblocking Foam Sealant
Continuing the pursuit of providing customers with high quality, performance driven products to help them succeed Everkem Diversified Products is pleased to announce the launch of their Thermal Seal All-In-One Foam Sealant and its addition to their comprehensive line of foam sealant solutions.
Thermal Seal All-In-One Foam Sealant was developed to merge quality, efficiency, and performance into one convenient product. Its ‘All-In-One’ formulation enables it to serve not only as a superior, low pressure, expanding Window & Door / Insulating foam that is AAMA 812-10 compliant and proven not to bow window or door frames; but as a UL evaluated fireblocking foam for use in Type V non-rated 1 & 2 family residential construction.
Thermal Seal also possesses increased closed cell content when compared to other gun-dispensed foams commonly found in the market, thereby not only increasing the R-value (the capacity of an insulating material to resist the flow of heat) but the product’s overall strength, and resistance to the leakage of air and water vapor, while retaining the inherent cost effectiveness of open-cell formulations.
"In today's construction market, its all about cost effectiveness, efficiency," said Jason Lynch, President of Everkem Diversified Products. "That's why we launched Thermal Seal. Its All-In-One formulation, closed cell content, and quick set-up time helps reduce the number of products required to perform common, yet vitally important applications, and the time those applications take [to complete. Installers will find themselves switching out cans less frequently, getting projects done more quickly while distributors will be able to reduce the number of SKUs by replacing multiple products while being confident that they are providing a superior quality, performance driven, efficient product to their customers."
Thermal Seal is designed to provide top-quality performance as efficiently as possible. Installers will find themselves switching out cans less often due to the product’s high yield and All-In-One formulation while retaining cost effectiveness per R unit thanks to Thermal Seal’s increased closed cell content. In addition, it allows the installer to move onto new areas or tasks more quickly due to the quick set-up time – all of which contributes to quicker project turnaround at less cost.
Fireblocking is required by the International Building Code for Type V residential construction. It is not to be used as a firestop in commercial construction, in any hourly rated assemblies, where a firestop is required, or any application or geographic location where its usage is prohibited by building codes. Always consult with local compliance authorities prior to use. FlameTech FB Fireblocking Foam Sealant is for professional use only and should be used with the proper training and personal protective equipment.
