Joint Sealant

Product Description

Seal ‘N’ flex 1 is a low modulus, one component, Class A polyurethane sealant. When cured it will form a tough, flexible seal capable of cyclic expansion and compression movement of 50%(+25%) of the original joint width.
Seal ‘N’ Flex 1 is virtually unaffected by normal weathering conditions suchj as rain, sunlight, snow, sleet, Ultra-violet radiation, Ozone, atmospheric contamination and pollution. Its excellent weather ability enables it to ratain its original properties after years of exposure, refer to the CSIRO RILEM LONG- TERM SEALANT DURABILITY STUDY DBCE DOc. 97/196(M)

Application Instructions
Preparation

Clean and dry all surface by removing foreign matter and contaminants such as oil, dust, grease, frost, water, dirt, old sealants and any protective coating.

Dust and loose particles should be lown out of joints or vacuum cleaned. Non porous surface may require preparation/ priming, refer primer selection guide.

Cleaning solvents should be allowed to dry or evaporate without being wiped with a clean, dry cloth.
DO NOT USE METHYLATED SPIRITS.

Priming

For maximum performance on porous surface and in all immersed application use Bostik N49 Primer.

5077 cleaner/ N40 primer is recommended for non -porous surfaces. prior to any application of Seal’N’ Flex1 refer to primer selection guide.

Application

Seal-N Flex 1 should be dispensed from either cartridge or sausage by a caulking gun (available from Bostik). Pierce the membrane at the top of the cartridge and screw on the nozzle. Cut nozzle to give the required angle and bead size. Place the cartridge in a bostik applicator gun and squeeze the triger. For sausages, a barrel gun is required, clip the end of the sausage and place in barrel gun. Screw end cap and nozzle on to barrel gun. Using the trigger extrude the sealant, to stop depress using the catch plate. Apply seal N Flex 1 in a continuous bead using enough presure to properly fill the joint. Tool off surface of sealant with an appropriate sized spatula or trowel. Apply sufficient pressure to leave a smooth, consistent surface and ensure maximum contact with the interface of the joint.

Joint Saelant Hints

  • Prime Prior to the installation of the backing rod.

  • Always use backing rod for correct sealant geometry & contact with the substrate.

  • Ensure maximum adhesion to bond face and depth to width ratio of 1:1 to 1:2 from 12-50mm.

Precautions

Seal ‘N’ Flex 1 should:

  • Not be used in chlorinated water such as swimming pools, spas etc.

  • Not be used on any material containing bitumen. Bitumen products should not come into contact with Seal, N Flex 1.

  • Not be constantly in salt water.

  • Not be used for glazing applications.

  • Not be applied to cement based substrates within 28 days of initial pour or set.

  • Not be in trafficable joints greater than 10mm in width.

  • Not be applied at temperature below 5 degree.

  • Not be exposed to water and/ or alcohol before it has completly cured.

ALSO NOTE THAT SEAL N FLEX1 WHITE MAY YELLOW ON THE SURFACE IF EXPOSED TO UV FOR PROLONGED PERIODS OF TIME.

Paintability

Bostik Seal ‘N’ Flex 1 can be painted after full cure. Coationgs containing solvents such as enamels, oil based or other coatings may cause the surface of the sealant to react creating a tacky surface. A field test is recommented to ensure compatibility of the coating with Seal ‘N’ Flex 1 (refer PATS).

P.A.T.S(Pretested Adhesion To Substrate)

Bostik offer a service to eliminate Potential field problums by pre- testing Bostik sealants for adhesion with samples of substrates and aor coatings to be applied. Consult a Bostik representative for further information.

Health and Safety

On contact, uncured Sealant causes irritation…. Gloves and protective goggles should be worn during application and use.

  • Avoid contact with skin, eyes and avoid breathing in vapour.

  • If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or poisos information center.

  • If swallowed, do nat induce vomiting. Give a glass of water.

  • If skin contact cccours, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly for a minimum of 15 minutes and see a doctor.

  • For more detailed information refer to matreial safety Data Sheet.

Clean-Up

Clean up unoured materialand equipment immediately after use using Bostik 9907 solvent. Do not use solvents on skin…

Storage

Store between 5 degree C and 30 degree C. Shelf life is two years in original unopened cartridge or sausage.
