Arbokol 1025 SP
Application

Swimming pools, compression joints, tile to tile joints (no primer required), long term water immersed joints, shower rooms. Not recommended for structural joints.

Description

Arbokol 1025 SP is a unique two part epoxy sealant which cures to form a hard wearing seal, designed to accommodate small amounts of movement in extension but considerable movement in compression. Recommended for use in a variety of internal stress relief joint systems where continual water resistance and a high degree of chemical resistance (especially to common cleaning substances) are required.

Where applicable, appropriate joint filler, e.g. closed cell polyethylene foam should be used to provide the correct joint depth. All joint preparation and sealant application should be carried out in accordance with BS 8000-16 (British Standard for the sealing of joints in buildings).

Applications:

Swimming pools, compression joints, tile to tile joints (no primer required), long term water immersed joints, shower rooms. Not recommended for structural joints.

Recommended accessories:

  • Arbo Cleaner No. 17 (Xylene based – not suitable for use with plastics or delicate finishes).
  • Arbo Cleaner No. 16 (Alcohol based).
