Sealant designed for weathersealing natural stone facades, curtain walling and expansion joints in structural glazing.

Features:

  • Cures to form a unique, dry matt finish surface.
  • Improved aesthetic performance; reduces long-term residue rundown on glass, metal panels or staining on porous substrates.
  • Good working and tooling time.
  • All-temperature gunnability: from -29–50°C, permitting application in all seasons.
  • Low modulus, high movement capability; can accommodate ±50% movement in a properly designed joint.
  • Unprimed adhesion to most glass, brick and fluoropolymer-painted substrates; primed adhesion to other common construction substrates such as marble, limestone, granite and concrete.
  • Excellent weatherability; non-reverting silicone durability.
  • Compatible with open and closed-cell polyurethane backer rods.
  • Paintable; may be painted with oil based paints after full cure and up to six months after installation.
