What is expanding foam tape?

Expanding foam tape is a constructed from pre-compressed, soft polyurethane foam and can be found used in joints that are subjected to water vapour. It performs brilliantly in applications that need to be sealed against driving rain and the addition of self-adhesive backing ensure easy installation, no matter the application. Expanding foam tape is commonly used in high moving joints on both pitched and flat roofs where expansion and contraction is likely to take place. It seals and protects, too, by acting as a fantastic thermal and acoustic barrier that benefits from elasticity and the common properties of fillers.

Based on a diffusion open cell material, expanding foam tape is a sealing tape that offers high resistance to wind, UV rays and adverse weather conditions while simultaneously reducing the risk of rot and spread of fungal infection to adjacent building materials.

Customisable expanding foam tape

The expanding foam tape we supply is available in different widths, thickness and lengths, depending on both the gap that requires sealing and the nature of the environment. Unlike many suppliers, we’re more than happy to discuss unusual requirements, therefore if you think your application falls into that category, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our sales team.

Our range of expanding foam tape also offers brilliant noise reduction sealing and 600 Pascals sealing ensures optimal pressure and force to fend off the worst side effects of adverse weather such as driving rain, wind and fluctuating temperatures.

Expanding foam tape:

RHN1007 and RHN1009 expansion tape.

Joint sealing and gap sealing foam tape comes in many different forms, but are commonly supplied in
two forms:

• RHN1007 has a bespoke cell structure and compound makeup, providing a delayed and
gradual expansion when applied by hand via coil.
• RHN1009 offers great weather resistance, noise reduction and thermal installation and is
therefore ideal expanding foam tape for installations that feature a degree of movement in the
structure.

Common uses and applications for expanding foam tape

Expanding foam tape is the perfect gap sealant for the following types of application:
• Seals gaps between window/door frame and brickwork
• Seals gaps between concrete sections
• Seals gaps between the sill and embrasure
• Seals gap between double casement windows
• Seals gaps in sky lights and roof lights
• Seals gaps in roof construction

Expanding foam tape is also a wonderful, economic insulating tape for the following:
• Insulates against noise and vibration in connection with ventilation and climate installations
• Insulates against noise and vibration within the caravan park industry
• Insulates in conjunction with the installation of windows

Common applications for expanding foam tape are as follows:

• Perimeter seals for windows and doors
• Façade roof joints
• Timber frame buildings and log cabins
• Sandwich panelling
• Installation of roof lights
• Installation of solar panels
• Side/end laps on roofing sheets
• Abutment seals for conservatories
