Alcot’s latest backerrod releases are composed of extruded bi-cellular material with a polyethylene backer rod material. More to this, the rod is also insulated against water entry. As result, the rods are highly pliable in all its uses. Consequently, you can use it with most sealants used today such as acrylic and urethane. More to this, since the backer-rods are made of highly flexible material, they can easily fit into the joints of various widths and depths. However, it should be noted that the backers-rod should not be taken as a complete substitute to the uses of the standard closed-cell backers. Thus, when looking for the most efficient window glazing, parking decks, wall expansion joints or elegant and expansive pavement finishing, Alcot’s backer rod will offer you the best solution that meets every of your criteria.

When using Alcot’s backer-rods, excessive compression, stretching and the use with hot sealants should be avoided. This is important as it leads to the rods retaining their initial shape and hence making they last longer in their use. Next, when using the rods, do not lock in any frost beneath the rods as this may lead to poor results. Lastly, any object which may puncture the rod should be kept off during the installation of the rods as this may lead to poor performance.
