The world renowned Den Braven product range offers contractors sealant solutions for use across the building and construction industry.
Each of these products is specifically designed and formulated to fulfil the exact needs for applications such as glazing, plumbing, fenestration, flooring, fire protection, DIY and hardware fields. In addition these products find application in the automotive, general manufacturing and mining industries, to name a few.
The following overview of a small selection of these products provides some insight as to the design detail for the application of each, the quality and tight specification – and what can therefore be expected from other products in the range.
Den Braven Hybriflex-540 – The professional versatile sealant
This is a versatile expansion joint sealer which can be used to seal all types of external or internal façade joints, expansion, construction joints and joints in precast elements. It can also be used for external walling and cladding joints, infill panel joints, curtain walling, window and door frame sealing and many other applications. It has excellent movement capability and requires minimum surface preparation.
Hybriflex-540, which conforms to the South African Green Building Council standards, is a one-component, moisture-curing, low-modulus sealant and adhesive, free from isocyanates and silicones and with a low VOC content, making it environmentally friendly. It is also chemical and tear resistant – an important criterion if one considers the chemicals and detergents used to keep floors sanitized. The product does not bubble or yellow and has high resistant to UV degradation and weathering. Ideal for use with polyethylene backing cord (available from Den Braven).
The product is available in 290 ml cartridges as well as 600 ml foil packs in white, grey and beige.
The FireProtect® range
Den Braven FireProtect is a complete range of fully certified and approved passive fire products for application in expansion and connection joints, openings and surface penetrations, between fire compartments.
Passive fire protection products are the primary materials included in the construction of a building. By correctly applying these products, the fundamental and legal requirements of compartmentalisation can be met. Additionally, they contribute to the structural stability of a building and provide time to safely evacuate or clear it. Passive fire protection limits the spread of flames and smoke, which also limits the transfer and spreading of fire between fire compartments.
The Den Braven Fire Protect range consists of an FP Acrylic sealant, FP Silicone sealant, FP Hybrid sealant and FP PU foam filler. Each of these specialised products can have fire retardancy of up to four hours and international fire certifications.
