the uneven stone effect brickwork finish
of the library
extension to provide a
weather tight seal.

and reliability while offering a cost effective primary weather seal
for the installation process – it provides wind driven rain resistance
violent storm force conditions (11 on the Beaufort scale), as a guaranteed
Incorporating fire resistant qualities, the versatile ISO-BLOCO 600 can be widely
used to provide simple, quick and
effective gap seals to accommodate expansion
and movement as well as for weather tightness, plus thermal and
insulation, while still remaining permeable to trapped water and water vapour
– similar to a flexible
breathable style material for the building facade.
Quick and easy-to-apply, the self-adhesive ISO-BLOCO 600 tapes can be used to
seal joints ranging in width from
1 mm to 42 mm. Product can accommodate a
temperature range of -30° to +90° and is impermeable to driving
rain making them some of the best performing tapes in their class.
Once installed, a building is better protected from elemental factors like wind,
dust and moisture ingress by
accommodating the changes in structural movement
caused by environmental, cyclical and settlement factors.
ISO-BLOCO 600 can be over painted, is compatible with all standard building
materials and comes with a 10 year
warranty. It has a life expectancy in excess of
25 years plus (artificial ageing indicates 80 years plus).
It complies with the relevant UK Building Regulations, as well as DIN EN standards,
covering thermal conductivity,
dimension tolerance, impermeamability to driving
rain on joints and vapour diffusion among others.
