How do you ensure an air tight sealing around door and window frames in case of retrofit?
Air tight tapes can´t be used in the most cases, because nobody wants to have them visible.
PICHLER FD300® is the approved sealant for a functional air tightness layer around windows and doors. In conjunction with PICHLER Flex Closed Foam it creates a certified sealing system (rain proof, insulation, sound proofing & air tightness) with a 30 year functional guarantee.
How does it work?
The PICHLER Window Sealing System consits of two components. PICHLER Flex Closed Foam has to be used for filling the joint around the window, to create the required rain proof, highly insulated and sound proof layer. Once the foam is cured and trimmed, PICHLER FD300® will be applied on the inside of the foam layer to create the air tight and vapour control layer. Joint widths of up to 30mm can be sealed in one operation. Once the sealant ist cured, it can be painted over or covered with plaster.
