PU foam types
PU foam, versatile and proven
The first construction foams appeared on building sites in the early 1970s. Today, there are special foams that have been optimised for almost every specific purpose. For instance, there is an assembly foam that is particularly well suited for application in the winter. Here is an overview of the most important PU foams.
One of the main products used to insulate and fit window joints is PU foam. Today, about 80 percent of all windows and doors in Germany are fitted and insulated with PU foam. What distinguishes a good window foam?
Doors should absorb day-to-day impacts without wobbling. This is why there is special frame foam that is used to attach door frames allowing them to withstand continuous heavy loads.
PU adhesive foam for bonding and insulating
PU foam insulates, seals and bonds, and features particularly strong adhesive properties. It is most frequently used for mounting thermal insulation systems.
B1, B2 and B3-PU foam and fire protection foam
Construction foams that were developed as low-flammable PU foams for filling and sealing joints are usually simply called fire protection foams.
