Xpanda 600 Joint Sealing Tape
Xpanda 600 is a soft, expanding foam tape product designed as a weather sealant for domestic and commercial structures. It acts to keep water out whilst retaining heat indoors.
This product is an adhesive scrim tape, which makes positioning straightforward and easy. The polyurethane foam contains chemically-stabilised acrylics, which acts as a flame retardant upon application and as the product sets.
After application, the foam continuously expands and adjusts in proportion to expansion and contraction of gaps thanks to its permanent elasticity properties. This product adapts well to gaps as well as surfaces, including uneven surfaces, so that structures retain excellent thermal and sound insulation for years to come.
The measured performance of Xpanda 600 is rated at 600 Pascals, or driving rain, at 25 per cent decompression. This product allows for sufficient joint ventilation which prevents the accumulation of mildew, has high UV resistance, and ages well without noticeable cracking or splitting over the years. This makes it ideal in climates with seasonal changes and noticeable expansion and contraction in joints.
A major advantage of Xpanda 600 expanding foam tape over traditional aerosol-based polyurethane foam is its low environmental impact. Environmental benefits include:
- Less waste due to no empty canisters
- No chlorofluorocarbons released in atmosphere
- No fire hazard
- No mess to clean up after application
- Cleaning products not required for applicators since they aren’t needed
- Fast, easy application
- Preserves form to accommodate expansion and contraction
- Positioning made easy due to self-adhesive surface
- Better insulation – lower energy bills
- Reduced overall wastage
Ideal for use in door frames, window perimeters, exterior facades, curtain walls, skylights, and many other applications where vertical and horizontal joints require adequate sealing. This product is suitable either as a primary or secondary sealant.
Xpanda 600 can be used in most expansion joints, joints in portable structures, timber structures, ducts, mobile home and tiny home manufacturing, abutment seals, and more. It is compatible with most caulking products and can be painted over with water-based acrylic products or latex paint.

Amazing small business. We've been offered foam at a discounted rate for making PPE visors. Instead of profiteering through the crisis. These amazing humans are stripping profit back to the bone! Thank you!
