Sika Sikasil Pool is a sealant designed for joints in and around frequently wet areas between tiles, concrete, glass and metals. However, different prep work may apply.
The substrate must be clean, dry, sound and homogeneous, free from oils, grease, dust and loose or friable particles. Sikasil Pool adheres without primers and/or activators.
However, for optimum adhesion and critical, high-performance applications, such as on multi-story buildings, highly stressed joints, extreme weather exposure or water immersion, the following priming and/or pretreatment procedures shall be followed:
Other metals, such as copper, brass and titanium-zinc
These also have to be cleaned and treated using Sika Aktivator-205, wiped on with a clean towel. After the necessary flash-off time, use a brush to apply Sika Primer-3 N and allow a further flash-off time of at least 30 minutes to 8 hours before sealing the joints. Also, when using on PVC, it has to be cleaned and pre-treated using Sika Primer-215.
For instance, areas such as concrete, aerated concrete and cement-based renders, mortars and bricks shall be primed using Sika Primer-3 N applied with a brush. Before sealing, allow a flash-off time of > 30 minutes (< 8 hours).
For more detailed advice and instructions, please contact the local Sika Technical Services Department.
APPLICATION METHOD / TOOLS
After the necessary substrate preparation, insert a suitable backing rod to the required depth and apply any primer if needed. After that, insert the cartridge into the sealant gun and extrude Sikasil Pool into the joint. Make sure that it comes into full contact with all sides of the joint and avoids any air entrapment.
To ensure adequate adhesion, make sure Sika Pool is tooled firmly after extruding product into the joint. It is recommended to use masking tape where exact joint lines or neat lines are required. Remove the tape within the skin time. Use a compatible tooling agent to help smooth the joint surfaces.
