Product description

ATLAS BACKER ROD is designed for backing and sealing:
- expansion joints in ATLAS 100 and ATLAS 150 eaves systems for terraces and balconies.
- construction joints prior to application of sealing coatings – e.g. thermal insulation, windows and doors assembling, execution of expansion joints in floors and walls, etc.

Forms sufficiently strong base for the material sealing the joint, e.g. silicone.

Main properties

  • Flexible – easily adjustable to the shape of the joint.
  • Resistant to ageing – does not deteriorate under changeable weather conditions when closed in the expansion joint sealed with silicone or other sealant; resistant to wide range of chemicals.
  • With closed-cell structure – impervious to water and water vapour.
  • Reduces the amount of material needed to fill and seal the joint.
  • Supports the sealants used in the expansion joint.
