Sticking the vapor barrier foil to the profiles is a time-consuming and tedious job. Degreasing profiles, cutting the appropriate length of double-sided tape strips, sticky scissors, problems with removing the paper layer from the tape are just some of the problems that occur when installing attic insulation. Fortunately, there is a product that solves all problems. It is a modern SAXBO spray adhesive for vapor barrier foil.
Advantages of spray adhesive for vapor barrier
SAXBO spray adhesive for vapor barrier foil is a one-component aerosol that can be used on many building materials, such as concrete, brick, wood, mineral wool or foil. The glue also acts as a degreaser, so you do not need to clean the profiles before starting work.
How to glue the foil?
The use of glue is incredibly easy. It is enough to apply the appropriate amount of glue on the profiles (CD, UD, CW, UW) and wait 30 seconds. Then put the foil and press it firmly. There is no need to rush to sticking - the special formula of the glue allows you to stick the foil even within 60 minutes of applying the glue. In case of uneven sticking of the foil, it can be easily torn off and glued again (without reapplying the adhesive). In addition, the SAXBO spray adhesive for the vapor barrier foil has an adjustable applicator, which can be used to decide on the power of the spray.
What is the efficiency of foil glue?
As a rule, one 500 ml can of glue has a capacity of up to 100 running meters. Considering that the glue is not applied to the entire profile, but only partially (similar to the double-sided tape), its efficiency can be estimated at about 50m².
Can foil and foil be glued?
Of course! SAXBO spray adhesive is incredibly versatile. It can be used with materials such as: - concrete - brick - wood - glass - fabrics - jam - gum - paper - PE, PP, PVC, PUR and others (except EPS, XPS and Teflon polystyrene).
What are the other uses of the adhesive?
SAXBO spray adhesive for foil can also be used for many other works, including: - sticking edges of carpets, rugs - bonding EPDM membranes - joining foam dilatations (dilatation tapes to the wall) - gluing cardboard boxes, paper, cardboard - sticking cork paneling - as a primer in the preparation of porous and non-porous surfaces for further finishing works
How can I remove the glue?
The glue is water-resistant, what's more, it sticks to the fabric, so it is almost impossible to remove it with water and a cloth. For quick and easy removal of the glue, use the SAXBO foam and glue cleaner. It is a specialized preparation that can deal with dirt very quickly. It is available in two forms: a 1000ml bottle and a smaller 100ml bottle with an atomizer.
