Basic Use: ITP Soft Type Backer Rod is a soft, pliable and non-gassing backup material that is inserted into a joint to control sealant depth. This creates a backstop to facilitate proper sealant tooling, yielding a quality bond breaker between the backup material and the sealant. ITP Soft Type Backer Rod can also be used as a temporary joint seal.
Specific Uses: ITP Soft Type Backer Rod is suitable for specialty applications where standard backer rods are not appropriate. They are ideal for irregular joint applications, particularly where free flowing and self-leveling sealants are employed. ITP Soft Type Backer Rods can also be used in place of most standard backer rods, and are highly recommended for applications in which bubbling is a critical concern.
