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:
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.

INVESTMENT IN CPD SEES ISO CHEMIE SUPPORT PASSIVLUX BRANCH OPENING
Window and door sealant tape specialist ISO Chemie is continuing to invest in supporting its network of UK distributors with a new CPD presentation held at the opening of Passivlux’s latest branch.
The move saw ISO Chemie’s UK sales and operations manager Andy Swift at the window supplier’s Brighton branch, where a new Velfac, Unilux and Solarlux showroom has been opened for trade installers and specifiers across the South of England, who use ISO BLOCO and Hybratec multi-functional joint sealing tapes on installations to protect windows from thermal loss.
Delivered onsite and forming part of CPD training, the well-attended Brighton event covered advice on effective window installation techniques, and how to identify and rectify air leakage.
A large amount of heat is lost from a building through the gap between the windows and the surrounding wall, as thermal imagery clearly shows. This gap is necessary to allow for the natural expansion of the window frame throughout the year, what isn’t necessary, however, is the loss of heat.
Doors and windows account for almost a quarter (21%) of the total air loss of the average house, and adding the joints between walls, floors and ceilings brings the figure up to 50%. Many argue that airflow is desirable, however Andy Swift explained that you can eliminate 50% of heat loss while still retaining some natural air flow.
The statistics illustrate that in most residential properties, heat losses are overwhelmingly replaced by artificial heating rather than through solar energy or internal warmth. This means that reducing heat losses in the home is paramount in the battle to lower energy consumption.
ISO Chemie’s CPD programme is intended to advance knowledge and understanding of airtightness and related issues, enabling specifiers and installers to improve the design and construction of buildings and boost their technical and product expertise.
“Unfortunately, thermal sealing around windows is not specified by law in the UK,” Andy Swift said. “That is why ISO-Chemie, whose gap-sealing tapes and solutions provide effective resistance against heat loss, is getting the word out there through support for initiatives like this showroom opening. The message is clear, not only are the right products needed for the job, but also the right installation. Hence the need to go beyond simple marketing and into the realm of in branch education.
“It’s great to see a company taking installation seriously and ensuring their installations - and not just the windows - have the best thermal and air-tight performance.”
Guidance on the latest airtightness products and sealing solutions was also covered, which includes details of ISO-CHEMIE’s range of gap sealing solutions ISO-BLOCO WIN2WALL and ISO-BLOCO ONE. Up to 70% cost savings can be achieved when using these tapes for high performance window sealing, rather than the current three component systems.
