Sikasil-Pool is suitable for joints in and around swimming pools, areas under   permanent water immersion and frequently wet areas, such as shower rooms in   sports halls or leisure facilities, between ceramics, tiles, concrete, glass, metals and other typical building substrates, etc.

 

Characteristics / Advantages

 

Very high water resistance

High chlorine resistance (as required in swimming pools due to use of   disinfecting solutions)

Extremely high resistance to fungal attack

Excellent UV and weathering resistance

High tear resistance

Non-corrosive

High elasticity and flexibility

Application Details

 

Consumption

 

Joint Design:
 

The joint width must be designed to be within the movement capability of the   sealant. Movement joint widths with Sikasil Pool shall be > 10 mm and < 30mm.   Sikasil Pool shall not be used in joints of more than 30mm width and a minimum   depth or thickness of 6 mm must be applied.

 

Joint width

10 mm

30mm

Joint depth

8 mm

15mm

Joint length / 300 ml

~ 3.5 m

~0.65m

Joint length / 600ml

~7.0m

~1.3m

 

Substrate Quality

 

Clean and dry, homogeneous, free from oils and grease, dust and loose or friable

particles. Cement laitance must be removed.

 

Substrate Preparation / Priming

 

Stainless, steel, PVC, GRP, Stainless steel

 

Surfaces must be cleaned using a fine abrasive pad followed by SikaCleaner205 using a clean towel / cloth. There shall be a flash-off time of at least 15 min.

 

Concrete, tiles, glazed tiles:

 

Surfaces must be primed with SikaPrimer-3N using a brush. Before sealing the   joint there shall be a flash-off time of at least 30 min. (max. 8 hrs.).   For other substrates please contact the Sika Technical Service Department for   advice.

 

Important note: Primers are only adhesion promoters. They neither substitute for   the correct cleaning of the surface nor improve their strength significantly.

 

Application Conditions / Limitations

 

Substrate Temperature +5 C min. / +40 C max.

 

Ambient Temperature +5 C min. / +40 C max.

 

Substrate Moisture Content Substrates must be dry

Application Instructions

 

Application Method / Tools

 

Sikasil-Pool is supplied ready to use.

After suitable joint and substrate preparation, insert the Backing Rod to the required depth and apply primer if necessary. Insert cartridge into sealant gun and firmly extrude Sikasil-Pool into the joint making sure that it is in full contact with the side of the joint. Fill the joint and avoid air entrapment. Tool Sikasil-Pool firmly against the joint sides to ensure good adhesion.

Use masking tape where sharp and exact joint lines or exceptionally neat edges are required. Remove the tape whilst the sealant is still soft. Finish the surface of the joint with a suitable smoothing liquid for a perfect sealant surface.

 

Cleaning of Tools

 

Clean all tools and application equipment with Sika Sealant Remover / Sika   TopClean-T immediately after use. Remove hardened / cured material   mechanically.

 

Notes on Application / Limitations

 

Do not use on bituminous substrates, natural rubber, chloroprene, EPDM or on   building materials which might bleed oils, plasticizers or solvents.

Do not use in totally confined space because Sikasil-Pool requires atmospheric   moisture to cure.

Do not use Sikasil-Pool for structural glazing, insulated glazing, food contact   applications, or for medical or pharmaceutical use.

 

Recommendation for use in swimming pools / warm water whirlpools:

 

Cure Sikasil-Pool fully before the filling of the pool, minimum 4 days up to 21 days.

(dependent on the temperature, ambient humidity and the thickness of the sealant applied). The required vulcanisation or curing time extends with the increasing thickness of the sealant applied.

The resistance of a sealant to chlorine is dependent on the pH value of the water   and the amount of free chlorine.

Sikasil-Pool can be used in swimming pools and warm water whirlpools pools in   which the pH value of the water is maintained between 6.5 and 7.6 and the free   available chlorine is less than 5 mg/litre.
 
To reduce the risk of fungal attack of Sikasil-Pool, the free available chlorine level   shall not fall below 0.3 mg/litre in swimming pools and 0.7 mg/litre in warm water whirlpools. Continuous water circulation is required to avoid variable chlorine concentrations in which local chlorine concentrations may fall below these minimum levels. (Note that short term exposure to water with free available chlorine of up to 10 mg/litre can be tolerated).
 

If there is a very strong smell of chlorine, check the p-H value accordingly.

Regular water circulation is required and must not be interrupted. If interrupted,   partial or variable chlorine concentrations arise and may locally fall below the   minimum concentration.

Do not use acid based detergents as they increase the danger of fungal attack.

In case of a fungal attack of the sealant must be removed completely when joints   are reconstructed.
