Backer, Sof Rods, and Accessories
Backer Rods and Sof Rods are soft, non-gassing, pliable, bi-cellular backup material for construction joints and applications that require sealants. CR Laurence offers Closed Cell Backer Rod that round, flexible, closed-cell polyethylene foam with an exterior "skin" that is used as a backing and thickness control device for elastomeric and other cold-applied sealants. The Open Cell Backer Rod is not adversely affected by dynamic joint movement, and its inherent flexibility applies itself to joint variations very easily. It is perfect for use in cases where joint damage has occurred. It eliminates possible sealant failures due to outgassing that occurs when the "skin" of the closed-cell backer rod is punctured.
The Sof® Rod is an innovative sealant backing material that combines the best properties of both Open and Closed Cell Backer Rods in a single, trouble-free product. Sof® Rod is a continuous length of extruded polyolefin foam made with a non-absorbent outer "skin" and a highly resilient interior network of open and closed cells. Tools and accessories like Backer Rod Roller, Bond Breaker Tape, Backer Rod Insert Tool Set, etc. help in convenient and proper installation of the Backer Rods.
