ISO-Chemie Expanding Foam

In addition to our existing stock holding of outdoor grade performance silicone and bonding polymers, we are working closely with the German manufacturer, ISO-Chemie to offer a wide range of expanding foams which are being specified as alternatives to conventional silicone and aerosol foams.


They offer better thermal properties in addition to peace of mind where expansion and contraction in building materials & structure has led to failings well short of the warranties & guarantees offered by the installer - in particular where height or access is a costly issue.

ISO BLOCO ONE is a special multi-functional all in one joint sealing tape with outstanding properties: -

  • A-value of 0.00m3/[h-m-(daPa)2/3] the pre-compressed tape is 100% air tight at the internal seal area, contributing in minimising heat loss by convection.
  • Also possess an optimal vapour diffusion gradient from the inside outwards (40:1) enhancing the external transmission of moisture, enabling the joints to dry out quicker.
  • Resistant to driven rain in excess of 1050Pa
  • Can be installed in adverse weather conditions.
  • Easy one step application for reliable seal - sealing a wide range of joint sizes with a minimum of tape dimensions.
  • certified Passive House component
  • 10 Year Function Warranty - on the conditions of the manufacturer (available on request).


It’s a new approach to installing windows and doors, but with the above benefits they have been well received by architects and are becoming specified more and more. (There are also FR products within the range).

We were recently approached by a leading medical equipment manufacturer to solve an application problem. The customer had designed a display enclosure which had a green LED backlight. Unfortunately, the green light was filtering through the box which was not aesthetically pleasing.

After discussions with our customer we discovered that their three main objectives were as follows:

  1. Prevent LED light from flooding through enclosure
  2. Prevent dust and draughts entering the product
  3. Product must allow fascia to remove cleanly for maintenance purposes.

After careful consideration, J.I.T. advised the customer to use a particular foam tape to seal the enclosure and prevent the light from shining through. By preventing air and draughts from getting into the enclosure,  dust could not enter the product. The foam tape which was selected had a filmic layer on one side which meant that  the foam removed cleanly from the fascia for cleaning and maintenance purposes, thus fulfilling the third objective.

The photos below highlight the effectiveness of the recommended foam tape.

If you have any similar application needs then do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your options.

High Bond VHB Double Sided Foam Bonding Tapes

High bond tape is an essential material used in many different companies in many different industries. A large majority of our customers from the metal fabrication industry to the sign industry benefit from using high bond tapes instead of traditional rivets and mechanical fastenings.  

Why is high bond tape so popular?

  • It is a fast and effective means of bonding
  • It is  controlled and consistent
  • High bond tape has an instant initial grab
  • It is clean and easy application

The technology of tapes has advanced in the same way as that of everyday technology. The strength of many of our self-adhesives, whether they are high bond, double sided, foam tapes, etc. is almost unbelievable. If you are looking for an alternative to unsightly, costly and frankly time consuming traditional bonding methods then our range of self-adhesive tapes is most certainly the answer. In fact, even architects and construction companies use high bond tape throughout the building and construction process, so you can rest assured that high bond tapes work!


Please do not hesitate to get in contact to discuss our full range of high bond tapes and application guidelines.
