For joints between 6mm-12mm wide (minimum should be 6mm) – a depth of 6mm is recommended. For joints 12mm and above wide – a width to depth ratio of 2:1 should be used.
To prepare the surface, you should ensure that they are clean, dry, sturdy and grease-free.
Do not apply if the surface is below 5°C as it is impossible to guarantee Geocel 201 at this temperature.

Areas adjacent to the joints should be masked with tape to prevent contamination of substrates and to ensure a neat sealant line. Furthermore, masking tape should be removed immediately after tooling.

Closed-cell polyethene backer rod is recommended where a back-up material is required. Backer rod is available from Geocel.
The joint should be ‘tooled’ within five minutes of application to ensure proper contacts between the sealant and the substrate.

The sealing slot should be accurately formed. The slot sides should be cleaned to expose a sound surface. Care should be taken to ensure that the slot is formed to the required depth and any joint expansion filler tightly packed. Therefore, a tight-fitting cord or bond breaker should be inserted at the base of the slot to ensure that the sealant only bonds to the joint sides. Also, please ensure that all surfaces are clean, dry, sound and free from frost. After that, clean all joints of release agents, water repellents, laitance, dust, dirt, old sealants or other contaminants.
Geocel 945 may be overpainted with water-based paints; however, due to a large number of coatings available, it is advisable to carry out a compatibility test before application. However, for alkyd paints, water-based primer coat must be used.
If necessary, the joint edges can be masked with tape to prevent contamination.
