From this page you can find auxiliary materials about the technical indicators of different sealing materials.
The average values of the properties and resistance indicators that are used to characterise the materials are achieved and measured on specific methods and in average environmental conditions and hence this data is only of informative nature. It is at the discretion of the consumer to decide upon the suitability of seals and sealing tapes to be used for certain purposes, because the utilization and performance of the products are influenced by many factors independent of the manufacturer of the source material and Fixus Trade OÜ, including the conditions of installation and exploitation, the exploitation period and environmental conditions, which are only known to and controllable by the consumer.
In order to find the most suitable product for your needs, make use of the descriptions of the main utilization areas of our products, which, however, do not exclude their usage for other purposes and in other places suitable for the user.

Can be used for tightening the connections between lightweight walls (gypsum board) and other different construction structures and for sound insulation. It can also be used for insulation between facade board materials and wooden or metal framework, including in plinths and upon installation of sandwich panels, and for simpler glazing works. An elastic polyethylene foam seal that is adhesive from one side, watertight, with closed cells, good adhesion quality and easy to install.

Possible thicknesses of the material: 2; 3; 4; 6 mm, width according to specific order, the most common so-called standard dimensions are: 2×8; 2×30; 2×50; 3×10; 3×25; 3×30; 3×40; 3×50; 3×60; 3×70; 3×80; 3×95; 4×20; 6×20 mm etc.
Can be used for tightening non-opened constructions (does not tolerate mechanical wear). Due to their softness and elasticity, these types of seals are very suitable for watertightening the overlappings of longitudinal joints of steel profiles of different roofs as well as for the installation of sandwich panels and for sound insulation seals for lightweight walls (i.e. as a framework seal).
Material: elastic PVC foam with closed cells, the underside of which is covered with acrylic adhesive with good adhesive properties, the upper side is covered with protective removable silicon paper, depending on the density and compression the material is either air, dust or watertight, resistant to weak chemicals, UV radiation and humidity;
Colour: black, grey or white, depending on the thickness and type of the material;
Density: 90-260 kg/m3, depending on the density the material is either very soft or up to medium hardness;
Average service temperature: –30 °C+70 °C, recommended installation temp. +10 °C + 40 °C;
Possible thicknesses of the material: 1,5; 3; 4,5; 6; 9; 12; 15 mm, width according to specific order, the most common so-called standard dimensions are: 1,5×8; 1,5×20; 3×10; 3×25; 3×40; 4,5×10; 6×12; 6×15; 12×15; 12×30 mm etc.
Can be used to assure wind, dust, light, smoke and sound insulation in doors (including rotating doors, sliding doors and gates), windows, ventilation systems as well as in duct penetrations of pipes, hoses and wires and in different worktops (in line production where the assembled product moves along the brush-covered worktop from one working operation to another). A wide selection of special dimensions and profiles gives the seal a wide range of applications. The polypropylene brush seals with steel core are replaceable in aluminium profile. Soft brush seals with capron base are mainly used in different window profiles (aluminium or PVC) and in lightweight sliding systems.
Can be used for tightening and insulating the joints of different constructions, also to assure sound, vibration, air, thermal and humidity insulation in window and door gaps, facade joints and cracks (joints between metal elements), in special profiled roof coverings and constructions and in other uneven and unlevelled surfaces. This type of seals can also be used for tightening the duct penetrations of wires, in corner constructions of log houses and between logs as well as instead of sealing foams in window and doorways. Its thickness expands up to 5 times, it is a permanently elastic, airtight polyurethane foam seal with one adhesive side.
Material: polyurethane foam with open cells, impregnated with modified acrylic dispersion, improved with fire resistant filling materials, plastificator-free, the underside is covered with an adhesive tape that is strengthened with glass fibre net, expands by diffusion, resistant to UV radiation, lets the sealed joints to breathe;
Colour: grey or black;
Density: 50/80/120 kg/m3;
Average service temperature: –40 °C +100 °C, short-time +130 °C, recommended installation temp.+5 °C +30 °C;
Possible thicknesses of the material: 2/10; 3/15; 4/20; 6/30; 8/40 mm, i.e. the material will expand ~ 5 times to its initial volume after the roll is opened and the seal is installed, the most common dimensions of the sealing tape are 3/15×10; 3/15×15; 4/20×15; 4/20×20; 6/30×20 mm etc.
Can be used for different glazing works, as air, dust and humidity insulation in constructions and structures and ventilation systems (in construction joints that require good humidity insulation, in building containers), for tightening roofs and duct penetrations, in boat building and for filling different joints (to assure air tightness). A watertight material that has good adhesive properties with aluminium, metal, glass, wood and plastic, including polyethylene. Butyl seals that are covered with aluminium foil from one side are especially durable for UV radiation and are therefore mainly used for tightening the openings of roof windows and in exterior conditions generally.
