Window joint with AEROFIXX
1. Initial situation
Window is installed, window joint has been filled with insulation material.
Brush off subsurfaces; if necessary, clean with a vacuum cleaner and wipe down.
3. Cut away any excess insulation material
If necessary, cut away any protruding insulation.
4. Apply masking tape to the window frame
When doing this, leave a strip with a width of at least 6 mm free on the frame for subsequent bonding using AEROSANA VISCONN / FIBRE.
Alternatively, remove the joint insulation to a sufficient extent to create a clean surface for a lateral bond to the side of the window frame.
5. Spray on the sealant
Spray a sufficient amount of AEROSANA VISCONN / FIBRE onto the window frame, the joint insulation and the adjacent masonry. Apply the sealant evenly. Cracks and pores must be closed by flooding them. The layer thickness is sufficient when a textured surface (‘orange peel’) is recognisable.
6. Continue around the rest of the window
Bond all four sides of the frame to the masonry using AEROSANA VISCONN / FIBRE.
7. Check the joint
If necessary, seal any gaps with a brush and AEROSANA VISCONN / FIBRE.
8. Interior and exterior use
AEROSANA VISCONN / FIBRE can be used for interior and exterior window joints. The installation method is identical in both cases.
9. Remove the masking tape
Remove the protective masking tape immediately after the window joint is sealed.
Remove any traces of AEROSANA VISCONN / FIBRE from the window frame immediately using a damp cloth.
