Remarks:

  • Always moisten surfaces in order to improve curing and cellular structure

  • Cured PU foam must be protected from UV- radiation by painting or applying a top layer of sealants (silicone, MS Polymer, etc.)

  • For the filing of large volumes apply product in layers and moisten between each layer

  • We recommend preliminary compatibility tests on surfaces on which PU foams have not been applied previously

  • Always store canister with the valve pointed upwards.
