  • Closed Cell Backer Rod available in multiple diameters and lengths Meets ASTM C1330, ASTM D5249 For Use with Cold Applied Sealants Closed Cell Polyethylene Foam Nonimpregnated, nonstaining, and nonbleeding Inert and does not adhere to sealants Meets all requirements of the 1990 Clean Air Act Is a "Domestic End Product" as defined by the Buy American Act , Title 41 USC 10 Closed cell backer rods are designed to limit the depth of sealants, help the sealant assume an hourglass shape (which prolongs sealant life), and serve as a bond breaker to prevent bottom-side adhesion. Backer rods do not stain sealants, and are chemically inert. They are non-gassing, non-exuding, and virtually dust-free. Due to physical and chemical inert nature, backer rod is compatible with virtually all known cold sealants, including self-leveling sealants - butyl, polysulfide, acrylic polyurethane, silicone, and most other cold-applied sealants Diameter of Rod: 3/4" Feet per Roll: 1100ft Joint Preparation and Installation: Clean all joints. Remove any concrete form-release agents, curing compound residue, laitance, and any other foreign materials. To ensure good bond, joints must be clean and dry when the new sealant is installed. Air compressors must be equipped with traps for oil and moisture removal. Install backer rod at depth recommended by sealant manufacturer - use a blunt tool. Commonly used in expansion/contraction joints such as: Curtain Wall Partitions Bridge and Highway Construction Parking Decks Pre-Cast Assemblies Glazing Applications Panel Systems

TITAN FOAM™ is a soft, grey, non-gassing, pliable backer rod, with an impervious outer skin, used as a backing for elastomeric and other cold applied sealants.

TITAN FOAM™ controls the depth of the applied sealants and ensures cross-sectional hour-glass configuration.

Specific Uses:

TITAN FOAM™ is suited for specialty applications such as irregular and varying joint widths where standard closed cell backer rods are not appropriate. Common applications include but are not limited to: concrete expansion and contraction joints, curtain walls, parking decks, bridge and highway construction, pavement maintenance, window glazing and log home chinking.  

Composition & Material:

TITAN FOAM™ is an extruded polyethylene bi-cellular foam product which when punctured per ASTM C 1253 does not exhibit any out-gassing. TITAN FOAM™ has an impervious outer skin that resists moisture. It is easily compressible, flexible, and pliable for easy installation. It is furnished in a wide variety of sizes listed under packaging information.

Installation:

Prior to installing TITAN FOAM™, all joints must be free from all contaminants such as curing compounds and form-release agents, as well as loose and foreign materials. Install TITAN FOAM™ under 25% minimum, 50% maximum compression to the depth recommended by the sealant manufacturer. Before applying sealant, all joints must be clean and dry.

Compatibility:

TITAN FOAM™  is an inert material and therefore is compatible with virtually all known cold applied sealants including silicones, polyurethanes, acrylics, polysulfide, and butyl.

Physical Properties:

  • Density: 1.8 - 2.5 lb/ft3 ASTM D 1622
  • Out-gassing: NONE ASTM C 1253
  • Compression Recovery: 95% min ASTM D 5249
  • Tensile Strength PSI: 39-50 PSI ASTM D 1623
  • Temperature Range: -90 degrees F to 210 degrees F ASTM D 5249
  • Water Absorption: less than .03 g/cc ASTM C 1016 - Proc. B

Limitations:

Do not use with hot applied sealants. Do not puncture, over compress or stretch TITAN FOAM™ during installation.
