Substrate Quality

Clean and dry, homogeneous, free from grease, dust and loose particles. Paint, laitance and other poorly adhering particles must be removed. Standard construction rules must be observed. For the selection of a suitable primer, please refer to Sika Primer chart or consult our Technical Service Department.

Substrate Preparation / Priming

Application Conditions / Limitations

Substrate Temperature Ambient Temperature Substrate Humidity +5C min. / +40C max. +5C min. / +40C max. Dry

Application Instructions
Application Method / Tools Protect joint flanks with masking tape. Insert backing material, apply primer and observe waiting time. Apply Sikaflex -Construction (J) with hand or air-pressure gun, avoiding air entrapment. Level sealant with trowel to concave finish. Where necessary, smooth with clean water, adding a few drops of a synthetic detergent. Remove masking tape before sealant has started to cure.
Clean all tools and application equipment with sealant remover / Sika Colma Cleaner immediately after use. Hardened and/or cured material can only be mechanically removed.

Cleaning of Tools

Notes on Application / Limitations

When smoothing the sealant, care should be taken that no smoothing liquid is allowed to penetrate between sealant and joint flanks. To maintain maximum movement capacity, do not overcoat joint sealant completely only the joint sides should be overcoated to maximum 1 mm width. Should overcoating be necessary, trials must be carried out to observe adhesion, compatibility and drying behaviour of coating. Insufficient ventilation (lack of moisture) slows curing rate. Silicon based products can negatively influence curing as well as bonding properties of sealant. Do not apply to concrete substrate treated with transparent coatings (glazed). Colour may be influenced by exposure to weathering (chemicals, high temperature, UV).
