These modern environmentally friendly materials have remarkable chemical and physical characteristics, hence their versatility.
Our extensive range of Sealing Tapes, Joint Sealing Tapes and Expansion Joint Foams can be used in applications such as:
When using the appropriate products and/or systems supplied by ISO-Chemie not only do you achieve a weather and airtight joint that also has both thermal and acoustic insulating properties.
ISO-Chemie GmbH also comply with the RAL principals of “inside tighter than outside” and Passive House Standards. As a result a good room ambiance is achieved plus reliable humidity protection, so that condensation does not lead to building damage.
ISO-BLOCO joint sealing tapes are a vapour diffusion open sealing system for joint sealing between solid, mineral constructions. Pre-compressed joint sealing tapes are graded, by different joint requirements, into the building classification groups BG1 and BG2.
In the last energy saving regulations amendment, air-tightness for the building envelopes was increased. Buildings are to be constructed so that both the building envelope and the joints in the envelope are permanently airtight.
They also must conform to the new minimum thermal insulation and thermal bridging standards, to reduce the yearly heating requirements. ISO-Chemie joint sealing tapes meet these requirements.
ISO-Chemie seals for curtain walling are the optimal solution for metal and glass facade constructions in accordance with the latest standards. The system offers a reliable and permanent sealing for numerous internal and external situations.
We have developed joint sealing tapes which permanently and reliably seal expansion joints with large movement tolerances. These are suitable for use in areas such as; interlocking joints, roof installation, wall and floor plates, skirting boards, window and door installations.

ISO-BLOCO ONE OPENS WINDOW TO INSTALLATION COSTS SAVINGS
ISO-BLOCO ONE OPENS WINDOW TO INSTALLATION COSTS SAVINGS
Up to 70% cost savings can be achieved when using ISO-BLOCO ONE high performance foam tape from ISO CHEMIE to install and seal windows.
The self-adhesive tape enables installers to quickly and effectively seal windows from inside the building during the construction phase. This can avoid the requirement to use time consuming and expensive external access systems, which together with associated health and safety issues, can contribute significantly to a project’s overall costs.
Moreover, because the foam sealant can be applied in the wet and rain, the installation of windows can be undertaken regardless of external weather conditions, avoiding further time consuming and costly delays.
This can add up to potential savings of hundreds of pounds per day, ISO CHEMIE estimates.
BLOCO ONE offers a single product ‘fit and forget’ solution for fast and effective sealing based around the European RAL principles of three level sealing - the inside seal area is more airtight than the external one, allowing any trapped moisture inside the joint, or within the wall, to escape outwards rather than into the building.
The external seal area provides weather resistance and breathability, while the intermediate seal area provides extra thermal and acoustic properties and the internal one air tightness and humidity regulation.
ISO BLOCO ONE provides a longer lasting seal for window and door joints up to 30mm wide and installation compliance to BS8313-4:2016. It is impermeable to driving rain at a minimum of 1,000 Pa – 66% higher reliability than most conventional joint sealing tapes.
The internal air tight seal has been tested at 1000 Pa pressure difference (20 times more than UK Building Regulations) and was found to give less than 0.1 m³ of air loss. At the same time, depending on tape width, it will also supply a U-Value of 0.55 and reduce sound by 63 dB, straight from the box.
Once installed, the tape ensures structures are better protected from elemental factors like wind, dust and moisture ingress by accommodating the changes in structural movement caused by environmental, cyclical and settlement factors. Product complies with energy saving regulations (EnEV) on windows and doors as well as the RAL quality assurance association and can accommodate extremes of temperature changes, from -30°C to + 80°C.
Product comes with a 10-year guarantee and is available from stock on next day delivery service. More at www.iso-chemie.co.uk
CPD ON AIRTIGHTNESS IN CONSTRUCTION
CPD ON AIRTIGHTNESS IN CONSTRUCTION
Andy Swift, national sales manager for window and door foam sealant specialists ISO-CHEMIE considers the trade-off between air-tightness and ventilation in sealing products.
Air quality within a building is a big issue. The more airtight we make our buildings the less fresh air we get into them through random unwanted gaps within the building fabric. Such problems can cause other issues for people with respiratory problems or young children, so proper ventilation is crucial - it is often argued that if by reducing air loss you then need to build-in designed ventilation, then why bother in the first place?
The answer, apart from the fact that legislation must be complied with, can be summed up in one word: control. It is the difference between controlled air loss, or ventilation, and uncontrolled air loss and draughts, which is the nub of the whole issue.
How is ‘Build Tight, Vent Right’ achieved? With regards to ventilation, this generally falls into two major camps - natural ventilation and mechanical ventilation. If you achieve an air loss of 3m3 (h.m2) @50Pa or less, then it is a necessity to use mechanical ventilation. With an air loss of more than 3m3 (h.m2), it is generally considered that well designed natural ventilation is sufficient for most domestic dwellings.
For unwanted air loss, it is generally acknowledged that the air loss between the junctions of windows and doors to walls, walls to floors and walls to ceilings accounts for more than 50% of the air loss in a house. Other common factors of air loss relate to fabric of the building itself and the various holes knocked through the fabric for an assortment of reasons such as drainage, heating flues, electrical cables etc.
The industry is starting to understand that air tightness is only half the story for the sealants. That is why the thermal insulation of joints between window, doors and walls is now included in the latest SAP calculations, where previously it had simply been ignored.
When choosing a suitable airtight seal, the full requirements necessary to create a long-term solution must be considered. If it is simply to seal the edges or overlaps of an internal airtight membrane, then movement and thermal insulation are unlikely to be major factors to consider as any number of various stick on adhesive strip tapes are likely to be suitable. As there are technical differences between them, some specialist knowledge or advice is always helpful.
However, when sealing an actual construction joint between similar or different materials, it is a different story. An illustrative example is the movement between joints created by the junction of different construction materials, such as windows to walls or walls to roof etc. Even joints between the same materials can move, such as brick or concrete expansion joints. The initial drying out of the building must also be considered.
In this respect, the differential movement between timber frame buildings and the external masonry facades is well researched and documented. But the different coefficient of expansion factors of different materials is less well known. When selecting an airtight seal for this type of application, consideration must be given to several factors to assess if it’s correct for the joint-type.
