Description

Vertiseal® is a polysulphide sealant for vertical movement joints in buildings and civil engineering structures.

Advantages:

  • Easily mixed – reactor-in-base aids uniform dispersal during mixing.
  • Durable – resistant to environmental pollution, weathering and immersion.
  • Flexible – capable of accommodating shear and transverse movement.
  • Excellent adhesion – bonds to most common building substrates with appropriate primer.
  • Non-slumping – can be used in wide joints up to 40 mm wide.
  • Low gunning force – easy to apply.

Applications:

– Sealing movement and construction joints in vertical faces of:

  • Reinforced concrete structures.
  • Masonry walls.
  • Service reservoirs.
  • Building facades.
  • Sewage treatment works.
  • Sea defence works.

Joint preparation:

Apply masking tape and bond breaker tape where required, before priming.
