All joints must be correctly designed and dimensioned in accordance with the relevant standards and codes of practice before their construction. The basis for calculation of the necessary joint widths are the type of structure, dimensions, technical values of the adjacent building materials, joint sealing material and the specific exposure of the building and the joints.

For larger joints, contact Sika ® Technical Services for additional information.

Application steps

SUBSTRATE PREPARATION

The substrate must be clean, dry, sound and free from oils, grease, dust, cement laitance and loose or friable particles.

Removal techniques such as wire brushing, grinding, grit blasting or other suitable mechanical tools can be used.

Damaged joint edges can be repaired with suitable Sika repair products.

Where joints in the substrate are saw cut, after sawing, all slurry material, must be flushed away and joint surfaces allowed to dry.

All dust, loose and friable material must be completely removed from all surfaces before application of any activators, primers or sealant.

For optimum adhesion, joint durability and critical, high-performance applications such as joints on multi-storey buildings, highly stressed joints, extreme weather exposure or water immersion/exposure. The following priming and/or pre-treatment procedures must be followed:

Non-porous substrates

Aluminium, anodised aluminium, stainless steel, PVC, galvanised steel, powder-coated metals or glazed tiles. Slightly roughen surface with a fine abrasive pad. Clean and pre-treat using Sika® Aktivator-205 applied with a clean cloth.

Before sealing, allow a waiting time of > 15 minutes (< 6 hours).

Other metals, such as copper, brass and titanium-zinc, clean and pre-treat using Sika® Aktivator-205 applied with a clean cloth. After a waiting time of > 15 minutes (< 6 hours). Apply Sika® Primer-3 N applied by brush. Before sealing, allow a waiting time of > 30 minutes (< 8 hours)

PVC has to be cleaned and pre-treated using Sika® Primer-215 applied with a brush. Before sealing, allow a waiting time of > 30 minutes (< 8 hours).

Porous substrates

Concrete, aerated concrete and cement-based renders, mortars and bricks surfaces must be primed using Sika® Primer-3 N or Sika® Primer-210 applied by brush.

Before sealing, allow a waiting time of > 30 minutes (< 8 hours).

Adhesion tests on project specific substrates must be performed and procedures agreed with all parties before full project application.

Note: Primers and activators are adhesion promoters and not an alternative to improve poor preparation / cleaning of the joint surface. Primers also improve the long-term adhesion performance of the sealed joint.

Contact  Sika®  Technical Services for additional information.

MIXING

CLEANING OF TOOLS

Clean all tools and application equipment with Sika® Remover-208 immediately after use. Hardened material can only be removed mechanically. For cleaning skin, use Sika® Cleaning Wipes-100.
