  • How to use a gunfoam

    Many have asked us questions about correct application of the gunfoam. Masters Club decided to film a special video and give you correct insight on working with the gunfoam.

  • Foam sculptures

    Check out this great video on how Penosil foam sculptures are made. Foam skulptuures are made every year in cooperation with (NUKU) Estonian Youth and Puppet Theatre, many talented sculptors and artists. In 2012, in cooperation with NUKU and the students of the Estonian Art Academy three-dimensional sculpture letters we prepared. In total thousand cans of PU foam were spent on preparing them.  In 2011, the sculptures of singer Georg Ots, prime ballerina Kaie Kõrb, conductor Tõnu Kaljuste, wrestler Georg Lurich, actress Ita Ever, historian Jüri Kuuskemaa, poet Juhan Viiding and former president Lennart Meri were prepared. However, the first foam figure appeared into the town room during the Old Town days in 2010 when the figure of the nun Elsabe prepared by the design of the artist Kalju Kivi and based on the legend of Jüri Kuuskemaa was exhibited next to the Estonian Youth and Puppet Theatre.                     
  • Foam expansion pressure depending on foam type and application method

    At Masters Club we've decided to examine the foam expansion pressure depending on foam type and its application method.

    In order to do so, we have conducted the following tests, which are based on FEICA OCF TM1009 «Curing Pressure» the effective test method.

    Based on these tests we have concluded that unlike straw foam, a high quality gun foam will not deform door and window frames. However, the foam should be applied correctly.

    Applying it in a rush may impair the high-quality foam effect. See the video for more details.    

  • How to install a window

    The objective of this manual is to show a proper way to install windows and highlight certain nuances of the installation process. Why use a self-expanding sealant tape to fill the gap between the wall and the window?

    How and where attach the sealant?

    How to fix a window frame?These and many other useful tips on working with foam sealants are offered in the manual. Wish you a useful and interesting viewing and active discussion in the comments section.  

  • Using stone adhesive for laying bricks

    This short video will show you how to use stone adhesive to build non-load bearing partitions. Penosil Premium StoneFix 827 stone glue will be used for that purpose.

    Penosil Premium StoneFix 827 is developed for bonding various stone materials, such as stone blocks, lightweight concrete, concrete, foam concrete, limestone and ceramic bricks.Compared to standard grout, stone adhesive will allow you to lay more lines of blocks/bricks, as the glue will cure fast.

    Strong bonding will be achieved in a period as short as 30 minutes, provided that suitable temperature and air humidity conditions are ensured.

  • Installation of log house windows with self-expanding tape

    Years ago, foam replaced hard material that was used for the installation of windows as a protection from wind and cold. Today, a new comfortable and efficient product has been introduced – self-expanding sealing tape.

    It is a special elastic polyurethane sealant with open pores, impregnated with a sealing solution. Thanks to its density and elasticity, it protects windows from wind, rain and external air movements. The sealing tape is also fireproof. Areas of application In addition to the installation of windows and sealing of log houses, the sealing tape is also suitable for:

    • sealing the panel joints and ventilation systems of big residential houses made from precast concrete slabs,
    • noise and vibration insulation around ventilation and air exchange devices and in the automotive industry;
    • between roof elements and for other sealing works.
  • Testing fire-rated and regular foams

    We have an opportunity to demonstrate the difference between fire-resistant and ordinary PU foam. The benefits are apparent.

  • Vapour and wind barrier tape installation system

    In order to improve energy efficiency, we suggest using vapour and wind barrier tapes when sealing the joints to improve thermal conductivity and air density.The system consists of Penosil Premium Sealing Tape Internal (vapour barrier) and External (wind barrier), one of the high quality Penosil PU foams and adhesive Penosil Nail & Fix Universal.
  • How to use PU foam to seal exterior doors during their installation

    In this video, we use fire-resistant PU foam Penosil Premium FireRated Gunfoam B1 to install the exterior door.Always install the door according to the construction design, relevant requirements and producer’s instructions. Installation methods may vary, depending on the specific door design. Exterior doors are exposed to weather conditions and proper installation ensures their long-term functionality.
  • Differences between straw and gun foam

    In this video, we demonstrate the use of two PU foams, each with a different dispensing method, in the installation of interior doorjambs. For one doorjamb, we use a straw applicator and for the other one, a foam gun. As we see, using straw foam is rather uneconomic in this type of joints. In comparison with gun foam, a considerably larger amount of straw foam had to be used.
