ABC POLYURETHANE SEALANT
ABC POLYURETHANE SEALANT is one component, low modulus, elastomeric architectural and construction joint sealant. It can be used as expansion and connecting joints in building construction, perimeter sealing of window & door frames, sealing architectural joints such as granite facade & precast concrete and in tile installations, specifically for large format tiles.

The surface must be fully cured & structurally stable . Make sure the surface is dry, clean and free from contaminants such as dirt, dust, loose material, oils and chemicals. TIP: Use masking tape for best result and a perfectly straight application line. Apply the tape protecting both sides of the gap to be sealed. Remove the tape before the sealant is dry.
1. Application a. Use a sausage gun to dispense the sealant. Note: The use of a sausage gun ensures even distribution for a professional finish. TIP: Hold the sealant gun at an angle of 45° while pulling the gun towards yourself. Find the right working speed to properly fill the necessary gaps. b. Ensure the sealant is in contact with both sides of joints and gaps. Use foam backer rods to establish good bonding at the sides and to control the depth of the sealant. 2. Finishing Remove excess sealant and tool with flat knife. Depending on humidity & temperature, applied sealant is touch dry after 30 minutes and can be sanded and painted over after 24 hours. Note: Protect from water exposure for at least 4 hours after application.
