Also in sealing joints around aluminium and timber door and window frames and between metal. Also suitable for sealing sawn joints up to 10 mm wide in concrete floors and pavements. Advantages „ Primerless adhesion to concrete, timber, masonry, bricks, aluminium, metal and ceramics „ Neutral cure - will not corrode metals „ Low odour „ Low slump - suitable for wide vertical joints „ Long tooling time Description Emer-Seal PU is an elastomeric joint sealant based on polyurethane technology. Emer-Seal PU uses a neutral cure system reacting on exposure to atmospheric moisture. When cured it forms a waterproof and durable seal, which makes it ideal for exterior applications. The slower skinning formulation of Emer-Seal PU allows long joints to be sealed without premature skin formation, particularly in warm, humid weather. Technical Support Parchem also offer a technical support package to specifiers and contractors which includes on-site, technical advice from staff experienced in the construction industry. Design Criteria Emer-Seal PU may be applied in joints between 5 mm and 50 mm wide. All moving joints should be designed to an optimum width to depth ratio of 2:1, with a minimum joint size of 5 mm wide by 8 mm deep for porous surfaces or 5 mm wide by 5 mm deep for non-porous surfaces. Sealing joints in concrete and other masonry surfaces Backing Rod Emer-Seal PU Properties Data quoted are typical for this product but do not constitute a specification. Form: Smooth, non-slump paste Colour: Concrete Grey Movement ± 25% (total 50%) accommodation factor: Skinning time: 90-150 mins at 23°C, 50% RH Cure speed: 3 mm / 24hr @ 23°C 50% RH Typical hardness 25 ± 5 Shore ‘A’ (ISO 868): 100% Modulus (ISO 8339): 0.30 MPa Elongation at break: >600% Chemical resistance to occasional spillage: Good resistance to dilute acids and alkalis Continuous service temperature range: - 30°C to + 80°C Maintenance There are no special requirements, however, any damage found during routine inspections should be cut out and replaced. Specification Clauses Where so indicated on the drawings, joints are to be sealed using Emer-Seal PU, a one part polyurethane joint sealant as supplied by Parchem. The sealant must be capable of ± 25% joint movement, have an elongation at break (ISO 8339) of greater than 600%, Shore A hardness of 25 and an elastic modulus at 100% elongation (ISO 8339) of 0.30 MPa. Joints must be prepared and primed where required in accordance with the current technical data sheet. The product manufacturer must be accredited to ISO 9001. The sealant and associated materials must be installed by a contractor nominated by the supplier. Application Instructions Preparation The joint surfaces must be thoroughly dry, clean and frost free. Remove all dirt, laitance, loose materials and foreign matter. Remove all rust, scale and protective lacquers from metal surfaces. Non-porous surfaces should be degreased using Solvent 10. In all joints a bond breaker must be used to prevent sealant contact with the back of the joint, to allow optimum sealant performance. In shallow joints self-adhesive polyethylene tape can be used.
