Description

A one part, low modulus, modified polymer sealant which cures, on exposure to moisture vapour, to form an elastic rubber.

Recommended for use in many applications, including perimeter sealing in curtain walling and polyester powder coated frames, structural joints in brickwork and blockwork, and joints in lightweight cladding.

Not recommended for floor joints.
