Necessary Tools

Cutting knife, tape for masking of adjacent areas. Unstable areas may need to be clamped or secured during curing.


  • Always carry out a test to confirm compatibility prior to use.
  • Protect floor coverings with paper or a plastic film.
  • The surfaces must be dry, solid, stable and capable of carrying the load of the panels to be installed.
  • Remove all loose particles, dust and grease.
  • A speedier cure can be attained by moistening the substrates if needed.


  • Shake the canister vigorously at least 20 times. Leaving the cap on the can, screw the nozzle firmly into the connector on the top of the trigger.
  • Remove safety catch and pull the trigger to activate can. Fill approximately half of the required depth of the cavity because the foam will expand.
  • On horizontal surfaces always work away from the exuding bead and work upwards on all vertical surfaces.
  • The foam is firmly set in approximately 1 hour (depending on temperature and humidity) when any excess can be trimmed with a sharp blade.


Remove excess foam immediately with illbruck PU foam cleaner or acetone. Ensure surface is solvent resistant before cleaning. Cured foam can only be removed mechanically.


Store between +5°C and +25°C in dry conditions.
