Joint Backing - Bond Breaker

Joint backing should be used to control the recommended joint depth and prevent 3-sided adhesion. Joint backing may be open cell polyurethane foam or closed cell polyethylene. Joint backing must be thoroughly dry. Where joint design or depth will prevent the use of joint backing, an approved adhesive backed polyethylene bond breaker tape must be installed to prevent three--sided adhesion. Do not install more joint backing or bond breaker tape than can be caulked in one day.

Application

ACRY-SIL can easily be applied with conventional hand or air-powered caulking equipment. The sealant should be applied in a continuous operation with adequate pressure to fill the joint to the proper width and depth. (Do not overfill the joint.)

Tooling

Dry tool the sealant with light pressure immediately after application to ensure positive and complete contact of the sealant to the joint interfaces.

Masking

Should masking be required, it is recommended the masking tape be removed immediately after tooling, before the sealant skins. If necessary, the sealant can be installed below freezing provided the surfaces are clean, dry and frost-free. We recommend, however, for best conditions and performance, that the sealant be applied above 40ºF (4ºC).

Cleaning

Cleaning of equipment and tools can be accomplished with soap and water.
