Tremco Spectrem 1 is a high-performance, single-component, moisture-cure, ultralow modulus silicone sealant. Questions about Tremco Spectrem 1? Contact Us.
Spectrem 1 is the ideal sealant for the most demanding dynamically moving joints. This includes material having a high coefficient of linear expansion such as aluminum curtainwalls, precast concrete panels, metal panels and
Surface must be sound, clean, and dry. Contact surfaces should be free of loose dirt, dust, oils, and any other contaminants. Tremco recommends that air temperatures be 40 °F (5 °C) or above before applying any sealant. If
colder weather is imminent, please refer to the Tremco Guide for Cold Weather Applications at www.tremcosealants.com.
Spectrem 1 is easy to apply with conventional caulking equipment. Fill joint completely and tool. At 75 ˚F (23.9 ˚C), 50% RH, a durable skin will form within 10 to 30 min. Please visit www.tremcosealants.com for complete application instructions.
May be used in any joint designed in accordance with accepted architectural/engineering practices. Joint width should be 4 times anticipated movement, but not less than 1/4″ (6 mm) wide.
Closed-cell polyethylene backer rods or the Tremco sealant tape illmod 600 is preferred as joint backing to control depth of sealant bead. Where depth of joint will prevent use of joint backing, an adhesive-backed polyethylene tape
should be installed to prevent three-sided adhesion. Joint backing must be dry at time of the sealant application.
