The joint faces to be bonded must be clean, dry and free from dust, oil, grease, old sealant and any traces of contaminant which may affect adhesion. Surfaces should be degreased with solvent soaked cloth and then wiped with a clean cloth. To remove dust, use oil-free compressed air.
Although BLUESIL SLT 3S will bond well to most clean and dry surfaces, it is recommended that a primer be used on certain substrates in order to ensure a strong and uniform bond :
- Steel, ferrous metals, thermoplastic materials.BLUESIL PRIM 10073
- Concrete, stone, wood. BLUESIL PRIM 12076
On non-porous substrates, the primer should be applied with a cloth or soft brush in a thin and uniform film. On porous substrates apply with a brush in the case of particularly porous material apply a second layer after drying.
The movement capability of sealant as well as local regulations must be considered.
For good performance it is essential that the sealant be only bonded to the two facing sides of the joint to achieve this, install a backup material (closed cell polyethylene or open cell polyurethane foam). Apply the sealant in a continuous operation, making sure that all air pockets or voids are eliminated. Tool the sealant with light pressure to spread the material against the joint surfaces. This operation should be made with a dry spatula before skin formation occurs.
Excess uncured sealant should be wiped and cleaned with a commercial solvent.
Cured sealant can only be removed by scraping (i.e. with a razor blade), or with a special silicone remover product.
