E5830 Flexible Interior Expansion & Control Joint Sealant | Fast Set | Cartridge Applied

E5829 Flexible Fast Set Cartridge Applied Joint Sealant two component 100% solids hybrid urethane/epoxy polymer that provides a flexible, tough and resilient filler for interior expansion and control joints.  This material has excellent flexibility with 100% elongation and provides exceptional adhesion characteristics.   Can be topcoated or recoated in as little as 1 hour at 70F.

The E5830 is a semi-clear unpigmented product packaged in a 300ml x 300ml dual cartridge system that comes with one ½” x 30 element static mixing nozzle, and retainer nut per kit.

It is easy to fill control and expansion joints with the long static mixer tube dispensing material direct into the joint to overfill and then use a scraper right after it is tack free and scrape even with the floor.

Recommended for interior expansion and control joints in general industry.  Not recommended for outdoor applications.  Not resistant to all acids and chemicals.

Comes packaged in sets of 1, 6 or 12 cartridge kits.  Each cartridge kit comes with 1 static mixer.  Extra mixers are available in boxes of 5 units.

PRIMER: None required

TOPCOAT: None required. Many acrylic, epoxy and urethane coatings are compatible.

PRODUCT STORAGE: Store product in an area so as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using. Continuous storage should be above 550 F to prevent product crystallization.

SURFACE PREPARATION: All dirt, oil, dust, foreign contaminants and laitance must be removed to assure a trouble free bond to the substrate.  We recommend that all loose concrete, previous joint compound or other foreign material be removed to leave a clean sound joint at least 1/2” deep.  For best results, edges should be sawcut and a backer rod should be placed into the joint. At a minimum, the joint depth should be at least ½ the joint width from the top of the backer rod to the top of the joint with a minimum of ½”.

PRIMER:  No primer is necessary.  This material is self-priming.  However, any suitable primer can be used.

PRODUCT MIXING:  It is important that the material be mixed (shaken) before using. This product has a very short pot life of 1-2 minutes and should be applied continuously once opened to prevent the tip from becoming clogged using a ½” diameter 30 element tip.  The product is packaged in a closed end dual cartridge and the closed end tip can be removed with a screwdriver prior to applying the static mixing tip and retainer nut. ALWAYS dispense a small beginning portion onto cardboard to prevent non-mixed material from entering joint.  Improper mixing may result in product failure.

To assemble, hold tubes with tip facing upward. First, remove the closed end on the cartridge system with a screwdriver. Next, place the static mix nozzle over the tube set ends. Finally, slip the screw collar over the tip and tighten on the tube set and then place the tube set into the tube applicator.

Do not allow material to mix prior to dispensing as it will cure within 1-2 minutes.

PRODUCT APPLICATION:  Discard the unmixed portion of mixed material at the start of each application.  This product has a very short pot life of 1-2 minutes and should be applied with a dual cartridge caulking gun using the ½” diameter 30 element tip. Apply the mixed product by pumping the mixed material in a continuous motion into the expansion joint to be repaired. Remove any excess material with a razor scraper or similar tool after the material has set up enough to cut through with the razor scraping toll.  On areas that are not shaved or leveled with a razor scraping tool, it would be advisable to roughen the surface of the joint compound to maximize adhesion of any subsequent coating. Maintain temperatures within the recommended ranges during the application and curing process.  When temperatures are lower, allow more time for this material to cure.

RECOAT OR TOPCOATING:   No recoating or topcoating is necessary.  However, if you opt to topcoat the applied joint compound, allow it to cure before topcoating.  It is not necessary to prime over the joint compound prior to topcoating, but adhesion can be improved by roughening the joint compound prior to coating. Many epoxies and urethanes can be used.  In some instances, especially when excessive expansion joint movement is involved, topcoats may chip or crack.  However, most epoxy or topcoat products will adhere to the joint compound very well. It is recommended to apply a test area with the system to be applied before undertaking the entire project.

CLEANUP: Use xylol.

SURFACE CLEANING: Caution!  Some cleaners may affect the color of the floor installed Test each cleaner in a small area, utilizing your cleaning technique.  If no ill effects are noted, you can continue to clean with the product and process tested.

RESTRICTIONS: Restrict the use of the area to light duty use and non-harsh chemicals until the coating is fully cured (see technical data under full cure).  It is best to let the repair area remain dry for the full cure cycle. Dependent on actual complete system application, surface may be slippery, especially when wet or contaminated; keep surface clean and dry.


  • Because of the quick cure time for this product, it is best to work with one small area at a time. If the material is allowed to stand for more than 1 minutes after initial use, then the material in the static mixing nozzle will partially cure. If the material in the mixing nozzle is allowed to cure, then the nozzle must be removed and a new nozzle attached. The material in the individual tubes are unaffected by the curing of the product in the nozzle.
  • Color stability may be affected by environmental conditions such as high humidity, chemical exposure, UV exposure or exposure to certain types of light such as sodium vapor lighting.
  • Product may discolor if exposed to certain types of light such as sodium vapor lighting. Product is not UV color stable.
  • Color of material applied in a joint may exhibit some cloudiness in some areas and more clarity in others.
  • When applying material in cold areas, make sure the surface is clean and dry. Also, it is best to keep the material at normal room temperature.
  • Always apply a test area and become familiar with the amount of time available before the product begins to cure as well as to evaluate the suitability for the product in the area where the product is to be used.
  • Substrate temperature must be 5°F above dew point.
  • All new concrete must be cured for at least 30 days prior to application.
  • Test data based on neat resin
  • Physical properties listed on this technical data sheet are typical values and not specifications.
