  • Box Yield EN 17333-1 (400ml Cannister): Approx 10 Litres

  • Joint Yield EN 17333-1 (400ml Cannister): Approx 8 Metres

  • Acoustic Rating ISO 717-1: 63 dB

  • Thermal Conductivity DIN 52612: 34mW/mK

  • Application Temperatures: +10°C to +25°C

 

    Substrate Suitability:

    Soudafoam 2K can be used on a broad range of construction materials, thanks to its exceptional primerless adhesion capabilities. It adheres well to surfaces such as concrete, wood, plastic, and metal, ensuring reliable and long-lasting results.

     

    Surface Preparation:

    To ensure optimal performance, the surface should be clean and free of grease and dust. Grease and dust can interfere with the product's adhesion and performance. Therefore, thoroughly clean the surface before applying Soudafoam 2K.

     

    Application Method:

    1. Recommended Can Temperature: The can should be stored and used between 10°C - 25°C.

    2. Prepare the Area: Before activating the can, make sure that doors and/or windows are properly positioned to avoid obstructions during application.

    3. Activate the Can: Turn the inner black disk on the bottom of the can 5 times to the right. This motion punctures the seal, allowing the components to mix.

    4. Shake the Can: Firmly shake the can for at least 20 times, ensuring the valve is pointed down. This agitation helps to ensure proper mixing of the components.

    5. Attach the Applicator: Apply the applicator onto the valve.

    6. Apply the Foam: Point the valve downward and start applying the foam. The foam will expand upon contact, so be prepared to control the foam and adjust the coverage as needed. The extruded foam should have a solid light-green color. If not, repeat the activation steps.

    7. Finish and Clean: To avoid curing inside the can, it is essential to completely empty the can within 5 minutes after the mixture of the components. If necessary, cover and tape up the substrate and adjacent materials. Fill the joint for 1/3, as the foam will expand further during curing.

     

    Cleaning:

    • Spilled Foam: Immediately remove spilled foam with Soudafoam Gun & Foam Cleaner. This specially formulated cleaner is designed to dissolve and remove uncured foam quickly and effectively.

    • Cured Foam: If the foam has cured, it must be removed mechanically or with Soudal Cured PU Foam Remover. This remover is specifically designed to dissolve cured foam, making it easier to remove from surfaces.

     

    Health & Safety Recommendations:

    Take the usual labour hygiene into account.

    Always wear gloves and goggles during application. See our Safety & PPE Products.

    Consult label and material safety data sheet for more information.

    Q) How do I activate Soudafoam 2K before application?

    A) To activate Soudafoam 2K, follow these steps: First, ensure the can is at room temperature for optimal performance. Turn the inner black disk located at the bottom of the can five times to the right. This action punctures the internal seal, allowing the base and isocyanate components to mix. After puncturing the seal, shake the can vigorously for at least 20 times while holding the valve pointed downwards. This ensures the two components are thoroughly mixed and the foam is ready for application. Remember, once activated, Soudafoam 2K must be used within a short time frame to take advantage of its rapid curing properties.

     

    Q) Can Soudafoam 2K be used for insulating around electrical outlets?

    A) Yes, Soudafoam 2K can be used to insulate around electrical outlets due to its excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties. However, ensure the electricity is turned off and avoid direct contact with wires or devices.

     

    Q) Is Soudafoam 2K suitable for sealing around plumbing pipes?

    Q) What happens if Soudafoam 2K is applied too thickly in one application?

    A) Applying Soudafoam 2K too thickly can lead to inadequate curing in the center of the foam mass due to the lack of atmospheric moisture. It's best to apply in layers, allowing each layer to cure properly, to avoid this issue.

     

    Q) Can Soudafoam 2K be used to fill voids in brick walls?

    A) Yes, Soudafoam 2K is effective in filling voids in brick walls, providing excellent insulation and sealing capabilities. Ensure the brick surface is clean and slightly moistened if porous, to improve adhesion.

     

    Q) How can I remove cured Soudafoam 2K from my hands or tools?

    A) Cured Soudafoam 2K needs to be removed mechanically, as it cannot be dissolved with solvents. Use a scraper or sandpaper for removal from tools, and for skin, a pumice stone or similar abrasive may help, followed by moisturising well.

     

    Q) Is Soudafoam 2K resistant to pests like rodents and insects?

    A) While Soudafoam 2K provides an airtight and watertight seal that can deter pests, it is not specifically formulated as a pest barrier. In areas prone to pest issues, additional pest control measures may be required.

     

    Q) Can Soudafoam 2K be used in direct contact with water, like in a fountain or pool?

    A) Soudafoam 2K is not designed for applications with continuous water immersion. For sealing applications involving constant water contact, look for products specifically formulated for such conditions.

     

    Q) How does temperature affect the application of Soudafoam 2K?
