Precautions in Use

Avoid contact with skin. In the event of contact with eyes, clean immediately with water and obtain medical attention. Use in well ventilated areas. Keep away from flame and sources of ignition. Contains isocynates.

Priming and Surface Preparation

Good preparation is essential. Surfaces must be sound, stable, dry, clean and free of dust, loose, flaking, friable material and substances that may diminish adhesion.

 

• Remove either mechanically or by manual wire brushing or other means any loose material, contaminants and other adhesion reducing agents such as rust, dust, friable matter, wax, oils and grease.
• New concrete should be allowed to cure for 4 weeks.
• A preliminary test must be done on siliconised tiles. Users must determine compatibility with surfaces, adhesion and staining.

Application

Apply sealant in continuous strip with enough pressure to properly fill and seal the joint, crack, corner or gap.

Corner fillets should extend at least 10mm along both the vertical and horizontal surfaces at a 45 degree angle and at least 5mm beyond the base rung of mortar.

Allow to at least skin before applying Multithane or Duram 195 over it. Resiflex FC 33 should be fully cured if applying water based membranes over it.

If used to bond tiles, metal or timber surfaces must be supported for up to 15 hours if weight exceeds 8kg per m².

Clean up: Use white spirits while still wet. If cured then remove mechanically or manually by scraping.

Painting: The joint can be painted when cured with conventional acrylic or vinyl paints but preliminary tests should be done. Joint movement may result in the paint cracking.

Other Information:
Please refer to the data sheet on Duram Leak-Seal Tape for the waterproofing of joints, cracks and gaps.
