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.

WORLD FIRST SUSTAINABLE OFFICE RETROFIT FOR ISO CHEMIE WINFRAMER AND SEALANT TAPES
New foam sealant tapes and a thermal insulating and load bearing bracket support system from ISO Chemie have been specified for a world-first sustainable office retrofit at Cambridge University.
The move sees WINFRAMER units and ISO BLOCO tape being installed at the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) Entopia Building in Regent Street, Cambridge in an initiative to bring the property in line with current zero-carbon Passivhaus and BREEAM energy efficiency standards.
This is the first-time that retrofitted windows are being installed as part of an office refurbishment to ensure compliance with some of the lowest emission standards in the world.
The 1930s built Entopia Building is currently being transformed into an ultra-low carbon sustainability hub designed to provide a new home for CISL as it brings together Cambridge’s academic and innovation communities with the university’s own network of companies to develop solutions to global sustainability challenges.
ISO Chemie is partnering with Internorm windows on a project that will see its WINFRAMER prefabricated installation frames, which can accommodate cavities up to 250mm, fitted internally around 50 windows, enabling them to be supported independently from the face of the wall.
Impermeable to driving rain at a minimum of 1,000 Pa and 66% more reliable than most conventional joint sealing tapes, ISO BLOCO will provide a longer-lasting window seal and installation compliance to BS8313-4:2016. The tape offers an internal air-tight seal that has been tested at 1000 Pa pressure difference (20 times more than UK Building Regulations) and gives less than 0.1 m³ of air loss while offering a U-Value of 0.55 and sound reduction by 63 dB.
ISO-CONNECT VARIO SD humidity regulating foil has also been specified for additional year-round high-performance sealing and improved UV resistance.
Andy Swift, ISO Chemie’s sales and operations manager - UK and ROI, said the products have been specified because they are Passivhaus certified and meet long term sustainability requirements.
He said: “this is the first time that we are aware of that an office retrofit rather than newbuild is being carried out to the lowest emission standards anywhere in the world. So this is another world first for our products, which are ideal for high performance installations that must deliver long term energy efficiency. Passivhaus and BREEAM are as good as it gets when it comes standards of efficiency and are products are certified.”
WINFRAMER brackets can bear heavy windows loads to provide a reliable 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 CHEMIE’ S WINFRAMER IMPROVES WEST MIDLANDS HOUSING
ISO Chemie’s thermal insulating and load bearing bracket support system has been specified as part of energy efficiency improvements to dozens of residential homes in the West Midlands.
The move sees WINFRAMER units being retrofitted under an initiative to bring poorly insulated properties in Coventry up to current energy efficiency standards and provide better quality housing for homeowners along with long-term cost savings.
Passivhaus certified and fire rated to up to 30 minutes, WINFRAMER is a prefabricated installation frame, manufactured to accommodate cavities up to 250mm that allows windows to be supported independently from the face of the wall regardless of any external cladding being in place.
Quick and easy to install, the product’s application in Coventry is seen as part of a solution to meet a wider Government strategy to reduce carbon levels in housing that has single skin walls or non-cavity walls - these buildings have a reputation for leaking considerable amounts of energy, heat and sound.
Andy Swift, ISO Chemie’s sales and operations manager – UK and ROI, said this type of housing needs attention.
He said: “Using WINFRAMER as a platform for the windows to be moved forward, allows a cavity wall to be created outside the existing one. This can then be filled with insulation to massively improve thermal efficiency. As it’s also very thermally efficient and airtight, WINFRAMER is proving to be an easy and cost-effective way to improve the quality of the Coventry properties.”
The composite WINFRAMER 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.
