Low modulus silicone sealant to ISO11600 F/G25LM for glass to glass joints, perimeter pointing of aluminium and PVCU windows.
A low modulus silicone sealant, suitable for perimeter sealing of polyester powder coated frames, including windows in swimming pool buildings and glass wall assemblies.
Not recommended for overpainting or for use with polycarbonate or acrylic sheeting.
Resistant to most alkalis and dilute acids; organic solvents may cause the sealant to swell and loose adhesion, but do not directly dissolve the material.
Burns, but will not readily ignite, so does not constitute a fire hazard.
Should not cause migratory staining on porous surfaces, but dirt and dust washed into or around joints by rainwater may cause pattern staining. The sealant itself may discolour in contact with rubbers, bituminous or pitch-based DPCs, etc. Contact with some metals may also cause discolouration.
Very good UV resistance.
Correctly applied, the sealant should not require maintenance, and has an anticipated life in excess of 25 years.
See technical literature for standards with which the sealant complies.
Health and safety:
The product is labelled as harmful. Its use should be recorded in the project Health and Safety Plan.
+5°C to +50°C.
7–14 days depending on joint configuration and atmospheric conditions.
A combined joint filler/ bond breaker, such as closed cell foam polyethylene rod, should always be used to ensure that the sealant adheres only to the joint faces and not to the back. Bond breaker tape should be used where the joint has been packed out with fibre-board.
A primer is not required for polyester powder coated surfaces, mill finished aluminium or anodized aluminium or glass. Primers are available to suit other substrates – refer to technical literature for details.
