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

Refer to relevant primer recommendations.

 

Application - Conditions / Limitations

 

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

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

Substrate Moisture Content: Substrate must be dry

 

Application Method / Tools

 

Sikasil-AP is supplied ready to use.

After suitable joint and substrate preparation and priming if necessary and properly prepared substrate, the sealant is gunned into place and tooled within 5 minutes, using a spatula and suitable smoothing liquid.

Masking tape is then removed immediately.

Uncured material can be removed by using a suitable solvent or an approved sealant remover.

Cured material can only be removed mechanically.

Cleaning of Tools Clean all tools and application equipment with Sika TopClean-T / Colma Cleaner immediately after use. Hardened / cured material can only be mechanically removed.

 

Notes on Application / Limitations
 

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

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

Bleeding can occur on porous substrates such as concrete, marbles, granites and other natural stones.

On sensitive substrates, specific pretesting must be carried out.

Sikasil-AP is not recommended for use in submerged joints or in joints where physical abuse or abrasion are likely to occur. It is also not recommended for structural glazing or insulated glazing and food contact applications.

Sikasil-AP is not suitable for medical or pharmaceutical uses.
