Safety Precautions

Always wear eye protection, gloves and proper work clothes when using Loctite TITE FOAM. Wash hands after use. Cured foam is difficult to remove from skin, clothing and other substrates. May discolor skin.

Preparation

Surface Preparation:
Ensure all surfaces are clean and free from dirt, dust, oil and other contaminants likely to impair adhesion. Surfaces can be moist but not frosted or iced. Cover surfaces not intended to be foamed. To ensure full and even curing of the foam on porous substrates (ie. brickwork, concrete), moisturize surfaces with water spray before application.
General Preparation:
The temperature of the working area should be between 23°F (-5°C) and 95°F (35°C). The temperature of the product should be between 41°F (5°C) and 86°F (30°C). When working in cold conditions, can should be stored at room temperature for at least 12 hours before use. Shake can vigorously before use for 30 seconds (15-20 times minimum). Screw the foaming straw to the valve.

Application

Holding can upside down, press the trigger which controls outflow rate of the foam. Dispense the foam sparingly, filling the joint initially by half to avoid excessive overflows. Shake can regularly during use. Slight misting with water can speed cure. Foam can be trimmed with a knife after an hour. Foam will be fully cured in approximately 24 hours. It is recommended foam be protected from UV radiation by a protective covering or coating such as paint, plaster, mortar, etc.
Note: Ambient temperature and humidity can affect foam curing and maximal joint width. In dry conditions, to get the best foam structure and properties, it is recommended to fill gaps and joints in several layers by the application of smaller foam strings (up to 2 inches thickness). At very dry conditions, the foam may be brittle after hardening. This brittleness is a temporary effect.

Cleanup

Clean tools and uncured foam residue immediately with acetone. Cured foam must be carefully cut away with a sharp-edged tool.
