About this deal

The open-cell backer rods are used as non-adhesive backfilling in construction joints and to ensure correct joint dimensions for sealants. It also enables proper sealant tooling when inserted into a joint as the backer rod allows for appropriate depth. These products can help to ensure that the joint is properly sealed and protected from moisture, air, and other elements that can cause damage over time. Select a backer-rod diameter that is approximately 15 to 25% larger than the width of the joint to give a firm base.

I bought this to support the application of sealant to gaps between tiling and window frames and for finishing gaps left between flooring and door frames. Heat Mate Sealant is a high modulus permanently flexible 100% high-temperature silicone that is temperature resistant up to 300°C. There is half an inch gap between the tub and the wall and there is also the gap between the tile and the tub. To install the rod, you can use your fingers or a smooth rounded ended tool to push it into the gap, leaving the finished surface approximately 5-mm back from the front edge of the face of the gap, to allow the silicone to adhere to both the rod and the two edges of the structure it has been injected into.

The primary purpose of backer rod is to control the depth of the sealant and prevent it from bonding too deeply into the joint. They mention that it's a great product, works great in between floorboards, and is suitable for gaps 6 to 8mm high.

The Backer rod limits the depth of the sealant, thereby preventing excessive use of the sealant, which promotes proper joint design. It is inserted into a joint to control sealant depth and create a backstop to allow proper sealant tooling. Products arrived in good time and perfect for the job, a fungicidal wash to help keep moss off the roof.Backer rod is a flexible foam material used in construction projects to fill gaps and voids between two building materials. Backer-rod, is a closed cell polyethylene foam cord in varying diameters from 6mm up to 75mm (larger sizes run on request) Used behind sealants and mastics in expansion joints. This allows the sealant to maintain its flexibility and stability over time, avoiding cracking or breaking under pressure. I’ve also started to use spare parts of these foam strips for other DIY repair jobs where two part wood filled had to be supported from the inside of a half-rotten wooden door.
