Suppliers of: Sealing Tapes joint sealing tape gaskets airtight seals passive house tape expansion joints

ISO-Chemie GmbH are specialists in the manufacturing of foam products and sealing tapes for Facade, Expansion Joints and Window installations. ISO-Chemie GmbH manufacture a range of sealing tapes and expansion joints and from:

- Polyethylene (PE)

- Polypropylene (EPP)

- Polyurethane (PUR)

- Butyl EPDM

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:

Fenestration - Meeting the requirements for window installations

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.

General Construction- Innovative joint sealing for facades, roofing and interior fittings.

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.

Metal / Composite Cladding Seals

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.

Curtain Walling Seals

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.

Timber Houses & Timber Frame Sealing Tapes

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 CHEMIE SEALANT TAPE SPECIFIED FOR ‘REVOLUTIONARY’ NEW ROOF

January 2019

ISO CHEMIE SEALANT TAPE SPECIFIED FOR ‘REVOLUTIONARY’ NEW ROOF

A ‘revolutionary’ roof on a new £140m distillery and visitor experience centre in Scotland, has been sealed using advanced foam tape technology from ISO-CHEMIE.

The Macallan Distillery, built by Robertson Construction on the picturesque Easter Elchies estate in Speyside, has seen ISO-BLOCO T-Max installed to accommodate differential movement of up to 80mm between dozens of the roof’s timber cassette sections.

More than 5,000 metres of tape has been supplied for the 12,000 sq. m double-curved roof, which features over 380,000 individual components and five mounds to accommodate the distillery’s five production cells.

One of the largest wildflower roofs in Europe, the structure is also among the most complicated of its type in the world, with each junction and beam featuring a specific name. It has been tested in more than 160 different load conditions, while the ‘Swiss Alpine Design code’ has been used to understand the effects of wind, snow and ice on the design.

T-Max can effectively seal larger joints ranging in width from 14mm to 50mm, providing excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties. It can also accommodate a temperature range of -30° to +90° while remaining impermeable to driving rain with a minimum of 450 Pa, making it one of the best performing tapes in its class.

Once installed, timber framed buildings 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. The product remains permanently flexible throughout its life expectancy of at least 25 years.

Developed by international premium spirits company Edrington, the distillery’s been designed by architects Rogers Stirk + Partners, who were selected to lead the project after an international competition.

Nicholas Thompson, ISO-CHEMIE’s UK technical adviser, said: “For our tape to be specified for this revolutionary structure not only reinforces its strong environmental credentials, but also reflects its strong all-round airtightness, acoustic and thermal qualities.”

ISO-CHEMIE is one of Europe’s main producers of impregnated foam sealants, specialising in the manufacturer of foam products from polyethylene (EPE), polypropylene (EPP) and polyurethane (PUR) using the latest production techniques. More at https://www.iso-chemie.eu/en-GB/home/

ISO-CHEMIE’S WINFRAMER ACHIEVES 30 MINUTE FIRE RATING

December 2018

ISO CHEMIE’s ISO-TOP WINFRAMER thermal insulating and load bearing bracket system for the rapid installation of windows has been fire rated to E30.

The award confirms ISO-TOP WINFRAMER can protect the entire window area from fire for a minimum of 30 minutes, guaranteeing the retention of structural integrity, as well as supporting at least 200kg/m and providing an air-tight cavity support.

Thirty minutes is considered enough time for people to safely escape a property in the event of a fire and help to delay the spread to adjoining rooms and buildings, keeping any damage to a minimum.

WINFRAMER, which already has Passivhaus certified status, is a structurally solid, pre-fabricated installation frame, manufactured to accommodate cavities up to 250mm. This allows windows to be supported independently from the face of the wall regardless of any external cladding being in place.

Product can be quickly cut to length on site and secured in position using a single component adhesive and, if necessary, fixing screws. This allows installers to fit windows into the insulation area between the inner and outer walls easily, avoiding the need to use metal brackets that cause non-repeating thermal bridging and give extensive problems when the windows need replacing.

Andy Swift, national sales manager for ISO-CHEMIE, said: “E30 fire rating, together with Passivhaus certification, enables Winframer to be specified for applications where both energy rating and safety are crucial factors – an ideal future design solution.

“Widely used in Europe, we are seeing growing interest among UK specifiers in Winframer to provide a solution to the current flawed method of installing windows to walls using metal brackets, creating a thermal bridge and probable route for fire to escape.”

The composite brackets can bear heavy windows loads, including Bi-fold doors, to provide a reliable, strong and high-performance support frame. Installation is quick with windows attached directly and secured mechanically using either standard fixing screws or fixing lugs in the usual manner.

A hinged insulation core combines with the composite wood structural bracket to become an integral part of the overall wall structure, providing compliance with window energy saving regulations (EnEV) and the RAL quality assurance association.

ISO-TOP WINFRAMER can be used with a range of ISO-CHEMIE foam tape sealant systems to provide effective and high-performance window sealing. These include ISO-BLOCO One, ISO-BLOCO One Control, ISO-BLOCO 300 and 600, the ISO-CONNECT Vario range of self-adhesive foils and fleeces, and ISO-TOP Flex Adhesive WF for bonding and sealing to masonry and joint/corner sealing
