All surfaces must be clean and dry, and free from any dust or any traces of contaminants which may affect adhesion.
To degrease, wipe with a pad soaked in solvent then with a clean cloth. Dust should be removed using oil-free compressed air.
BLUESIL SLT NOVART does not require a primer on most common substrates, except in the case of immersion, mainly with porous substrates. Please consult us for more information.
They must take into account the joint movement in addition to local regulations. In order to allow the sealant to operate under the best possible conditions, the minimum cross-section of the seal should be 5 x 5 mm: for seals wider than 12 mm, the thickness will generally be determined as being half this width.
Applying the sealant:
Once a seal back-up material has been put in place (closed-cell polyethylene foam with surface skin or open cell polyurethane foam), the sealant should be applied ensuring that the seal is completely filled. Tool the seal to ensure good contact between the sealant and the bonding surfaces. This should be carried out using a spatula before the surface skin is formed.
Areas soiled with fresh sealant may be cleaned with a dry pad or a pad soaked in a solvent (compatible with the substrate). Any cured sealant can be removed by scraping (e.g. using a razor blade), or by using a special silicone remover product.
