- For glazing and heel beads in glass constructions with single glass, safety glass and IG-units
- Top seal in burglary resistant glazing systems according EN5103/2007
- Connection and expansion joints according ISO regulations.
- Sealer along wooden surfaces to be paint.
After curing Easyseal-XPS is very well paintable with VOC2010 alkyd-resin and emulsion based paints without extended drying time. Unknown combinations of paint and sealant should be tested first. It is preferred to sand both surfaces and sealant with Scotch-Brite prior to painting. In general sealants are more elastic than paint systems; therefore layers of dried paint could crack slightly as a result of joint movement.
Easyseal-XPS adheres to clean glass, treated wood, most metals and plastics. Make sure window frames and glazing bars are coated according to prescription. Substrates should be free of moisture, dirt and dust. Degrease if necessary with BS-Cleaner and a clean cloth. Do not touch degreased substrates any more. Rain or misty weather conditions are unsuitable for sealant application. Please consult our primer list or perform own adhesion tests in any case of doubt.
Practice and laboratory experiments showed that Easyseal-XPS is in general compatible with the butyl part of isolating glass units. Therefore it should be safe to seal insulating glass without the risk of cold flow. If the composition of the insulating glass to be installed is unknown, please contact our technical department or your window supplier for advice.
Extrude with a standard caulking gun or air-gun. Finish joints using a sharp putty knife or rubber spatula. Tools and stains can be cleaned with Bloem Cleaner. Cured sealant can only be removed mechanically. Hands can be cleaned with Bloem Power-scrub wipes.
