E5829 Flexible Epoxy Urethane Interior Joint Sealant

E5829 Flexible Epoxy Urethane Joint Sealant is a two component 100% solids polymer hybrid containing both urethane and epoxy resins to provide a resilient filler for interior expansion joints.  This material has excellent flexibility and provides exceptional adhesion characteristics.  The two component material (standard) is supplied with a black component and a white component so proper mixing can be easily observed.  Gray color after mixing. Recommended for interior expansion joints in general industry.  Not recommended for outdoor applications.  Not resistant to all acids and chemicals. Available in 2 gallon and 10 gallon kits.

PRIMER: None required

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

MIXING AND APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

PRODUCT STORAGE: Store product in an area so as to bring the material to normal room temperature before using.  Continuous storage should be between 50-90°F.  Avoid low temperatures and large temperature fluctuations in storage as these conditions could cause possible 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 patching compound or other foreign material be removed to leave a clean sound joint or repair area.  For best results, when the depth of the repair area permits, a backer rod should be used to reduce the depth of the repair area.  If the repair is too deep to prevent sag or slump, apply the material in multiple coats.  For vertical surfaces, a lower viscosity version of this product is available.

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 well.  Therefore take a few extra minutes to make sure adequate time has been taken to mix the two components together thoroughly.  Improper mixing will cause an incomplete cure and soft spots in the repair area or joint.  Mix one part (by volume) part A to one part (by volume) part B in an oversized mixing container.  Mix well with slow speed mixing equipment until totally streak free being sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the mixing container thoroughly.  Avoid high speed mixing as this could force air into the product.

PRODUCT APPLICATION: Apply the mixed product by placing the material into the repair area or joint with a marginal trowel, putty knife or other suitable equipment.  Remove any excess material with a putty knife or similar tool prior to curing.  Alternatively, it may also be suitable to let the product become tack free in the joint and then using a razor scraper to cut off or shave the excess above the surface plane. 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 the joint compound.  Many acrylic, epoxies and urethanes can be used.  In some instances, especially when excessive expansion joint movement is involved, topcoats may chip.  However, most epoxy or topcoat products will adhere to the joint compound very well.

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.

LIMITATIONS:

  • Colors may vary from batch to batch.
  • Gray color is not from our standard color chart.
  • Substrate temperature must be 5°F above dew point.
  • All new concrete must be cured for at least 30 days prior to application.
  • This product must be mixed well before using.  Improper mixing may result in product failure.
  • Test data based on neat resin
  • Physical properties listed on this technical data sheet are typical values and not specifications.
