Foster® Sealfas® Coating is a white, fire resistive, tough, washable, abrasion-resistant indoor coating for thermal insulation. It is also used as a lagging and lap adhesive for canvas and glass lagging cloth. It has excellent brushing characteristics, which will result in better coverage, and more uniformly coated surfaces. It presents a neat white finish, and will not yellow or become discolored with age. The surface can be washed free of grease, oil, soot, and other dirt accumulation.
Foster® S.M. Adhesive is a low cost, quick-setting synthetic elastomer adhesive for use with fibrous glass insulation (up to 3 lbs./cu.ft.) duct wrap and acoustical linings for air handling ducts.
