Recycled, light load thermal break pad.

Features and benefits:

  • Provides an economical and effective solution to Part L of the Building Regulations.
  • Has twice the compressive strength than standard neoprene and nitrile materials.
  • Provides better thermal insulation than vinyl and plastics.
  • Reduces corrosion between dissimilar metal elements.
  • Made from recycled materials, helping to achieve LEED and BREEAM credits.
  • Used to prevent thermal bridging and improve energy efficiency.
  • Wide range of thicknesses available.


Steel-to-concrete, light steel or metal cladding connections where the load is negligible or uniformly distributed. Typical applications include:

  • Parapets, soffits and roof to wall transitions.
  • Steel stud exterior walls.
  • Facades.
  • Masonry ties.
  • Concrete and precast joints.
  • Metal building framing to concrete and pre-cast connections.
  • Cladding attached support clips for Z-girts, C-channels and Hat channels used in curtain walls, rain screens, metal wall panels, veneer walls and louvres.

Not for use with structural or moment connections.

Standard product features


Recycled rubber with synthetic fibre reinforcement.

Technical characteristics:

  • Design value for compressive strength (including a conservative factor of safety to allow for dynamic response and energy return): 10.34 MPa (N/mm²), 1500 psi.
  • Thermal conductivity (λ-value): 0.114 W/m·K.
  • Operating temperature range: -40°C to 70°C (-40°F to 158°F).
