Our FOME FLEX foam cleaner in the 500ml gun can is an easy and efficient way to remove freshly applied PU foam from surfaces, clothing and tools. The gun can can be screwed on for easy cleaning of foam guns to remove foam residues from the inside of the gun, such as the ball valve, the inner tube and the outlet nozzle. The adapter tube supplied also allows the cleaner to be easily applied to the surface of the housing to thoroughly clean the outside of the gun as well.
The gun foam cleaner is suitable for all one-component PU foams, from simple construction foam to flame-retardant fire protection foam, fast-curing adhesive foam or even frame foam with low post-expansion, as long as they have not yet cured. The solvent-based aerosol is also very suitable for cleaning most surfaces, for example window frames, door frames indoors and outdoors, as well as floor coverings, pipes and cable ducts.
The PU foam cleaner from FOME FLEX is an effective cleaner for all one-component PU assembly foams and dissolves the viscous adhesive mass without leaving traces on the surfaces. The 500ml aerosol can can be used in two ways. Thanks to the spray nozzle, which can be attached to the valve, it is possible to apply the cleaner to contaminated surfaces and tools in a targeted manner. In addition, the can can be screwed onto all commercially available PU foam guns to clean them thoroughly from the inside. In doing so, the solvent-containing cleaning agent flushes through the ball valve, the gun tube, as well as the fine outlet nozzle at the dosing tip of the foam gun and frees all adhesions. This virtually eliminates the risk of the PU foam hardening inside the gun and thus clogging it.
For the highest demands on quality and effect, the cleaner, just like our PU foams from FOME FLEX, is manufactured under strict supervision within the EU. In Europe, strict requirements apply to the ingredients and compositions of chemical mixtures, which also include the highly flammable aerosol.
NOTE: The FOME FLEX foam cleaner contains solvents. We recommend testing the foam cleaner for surface compatibility on an inconspicuous area before use. The PU foam cleaner should not be used on materials that are sensitive to solvents.
Cleaning the PU foam gun
Only a few steps and a maximum of 5 minutes are required to clean a foam gun after use. A manageable effort to significantly extend the service life of a PU foam gun. All you need is the FOME FLEX foam cleaner, a clean, dry cloth and a disposable pad (e.g. cardboard, paperboard) onto which the remaining foam is sprayed. If possible, the cleaning should be carried out outdoors. If this is not possible, ensure that there is a sufficient supply of fresh air.
The first step is to unscrew the PU foam can from the gun. It is recommended to close the adjusting screw completely beforehand to avoid accidental triggering of the pistol grip. After removing the foam can, the valve and the screw thread of the can holder can be freed from the remaining foam that has escaped. To do this, insert the spray attachment into the foam cleaner can and spray the affected areas until the soft foam has completely dissolved. The same can be done for adhesions on the gun barrel, provided that the foam there has not yet started to harden. If there is no more contamination of the adhesive mass on the outside of the gun, the housing can be dried with a soft, dry cloth.
To clean the inside of the gun, remove the spray attachment from the foam cleaner and screw the can onto the foam gun. Only after this step should the dosage adjustment screw be loosened and the pistol grip operated. In the meantime, the ball valve, the tube and the dispensing tip are flushed and thus cleaned of PU foam. The remaining foam inside the gun tube comes out of the dispensing tip. Keep the gun handle pressed until no more foam comes out and only the colourless liquid of the gun foam cleaner comes out of the tip. This is the only way to ensure that no residual build-up remains inside the gun barrel that could clog the barrel later. Afterwards, the aerosol can can be unscrewed from the gun and the gun wiped with a clean disposable cloth.
NOTE: Incidentally, it is not necessary to clean the gun after each short use if it is to be used again after a short time. However, it is a condition that a foam canister that has not been completely emptied remains screwed on and that the adjustment screw of the foam gun is completely closed so that no air can penetrate the inside of the gun and cause the foam to harden.
Cleaning tools and surfaces
PU assembly foam is used for many purposes for bonding and filling joints and cavities. It can happen that surfaces, for example of window profiles or door frames, are unintentionally contaminated with the stubborn adhesive mass. In this case, it is important to act fast, because as long as the foam is still soft and not hardened, our PU foam cleaner can be used very well to clean these surfaces. To do this, put the spray attachment on the valve of the aerosol can and spray it gently and specifically on the desired areas. The cleaner dissolves the foam and cleans the surfaces effectively. Finally, the liquid can be absorbed with a dry, clean cloth.
The same procedure can be used for cleaning tools or floor coverings. The cleaner leaves no traces on metallic materials or coated door frames and window profiles made of PVC. However, it should be noted that FOME FLEX PU foam cleaner contains solvents. For this reason, we strongly advise you to carry out a test on an inconspicuous area before use to ensure that the surfaces are not attacked. It is not advisable to use PU foam cleaner on untreated wood, natural stone or solvent-resistant plastics. Here, the foam should be carefully removed mechanically, for example with a profile scraper, once it has hardened.
When cleaning clothes and shoes, please note that they must be removed beforehand. Never use the cleaner on clothing that has been worn. Adhesions of fresh PU foam can be dissolved with the cleaner by spraying it on generously and rubbing it off with a damp disposable cloth. Before wearing the clothing again, it should be washed.
WARNING: Gloves should always be worn when working with PU assembly foam. This also applies when cleaning tools, clothing and surfaces of uncured PU foam with the foam cleaner.
Before using the FOME FLEX foam cleaner, the safety sheet and the technical data sheet should be consulted. In particular, the information on handling and personal protective equipment during application should be observed. Even if the safety data sheet does not explicitly state this, the foam cleaner should always be kept tightly closed and out of the reach of children.
The complete wording of the hazard statements can be found in the safety data sheet for FOME FLEX foam cleaner PU foam cleaner in section 16. This also contains detailed information on the use, storage, transport and disposal of the foam cleaner.
