Data Sheet

Description

Willseal Seismic is a pre-compressed, self-expanding open micro-cell polyurethane foam impregnated with a hydrophobic, acrylic polymer sealing compound coated with a factory-applied silicone sealant. It is designed to provide a watertight, dust-proof, airtight, noise-reducing, thermally insulating, and UV stable primary seal that does not require invasive anchoring for installation.

Installation
PREPARATION
• Verify that the joint is clean, sound and will provide an appropriate surface for installation of the joint sealant
• Check material for the appropriate lengths, widths and depths

INSTALLATION
• Run a 3/8” bead of the supplied silicone adhesive along both sides of the joint approximately ½” – ¾” back from the substrate surface, for larger joints use the supplied epoxy
• When fully prepared to install, remove the shrink packaging, hardboard and both release liners from the precompressed joint. *NOTE* Willseal Seismic joints smaller than 4” typically have a PSA (Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive) applied to one sidewall of the stick (typically the release liner is white); when installing Willseal Seismic at sizes smaller than 4” press the side of the joint with the PSA against that substrate to activate the PSA. For the sidewall opposite the PSA, utilize the supplied silicone as the sidewall adhesive. The expansive force of the Willseal Seismic will work in conjunction with the adhesive to maintain its position
• Once the joint is installed, run a ¼” bead of the supplied silicone adhesive along both sides of the face of the joint along the substrate face
• Run the supplied silicone accessory over all seams and transitions to allow for a clean, aesthetic finish

CLEAN UP
• Remove any excess silicone left on the surface of the material or substrate.
• Do not reuse waste material
