Poly TI is a high performance one part Polyurethane sealant weather-resistant, non-sagging, and water tight with excellent adhesion properties designed for use in all types of joints, vertically and horizontally. Poly TI has a movement capability of ±25% of the joint width, making it ideal for joints.
Chemical resistance (as an indication): to water, cleaning agents, accidental spills of oils and hydrocarbons, accidental spills of acids and diluted bases.
Because of the sensitivity of polyurethanes to UV, clear colours may change over time.
This modification is only aesthetic and it does not affect the mechanical properties of the cured product.
All joints need to be absolutely clean. For concrete, sand blasting is recommended. All curing compounds, caulks, grease, water proofing compounds etc. need to be removed .For non porous surfaces such as glass, metal etc.cleaning with M.E.K or Toluene is recommended. Polyethylene rod or polyurethane foam is recommended as a joint filler and back up material. Fillers treated with bituminous products, grease or oil should not be used. Where present they need to be removed or separated by vinyl tape or polyethylene film.
A preliminary test is necessary on siliconized tiles. It is up to the users to check the compatibility with the surface in terms of adherence, chemical compatibility and staining (make a pre-test if required).
Size correctly the joint according to the predictable movements and to the capacity of movement.
The width of the joint shall be included between 6 and 40 mm. For the width of joint lower or equal to 10 mm, the depth of the joint shall be equal to its widht. For the widths of joints superior to 10mm the depth of the joint shall be equal in the middle of its width.
All joints need to be properly designed and dimensioned by the main contractor in accordance with the relevant standards, because changes are not usually feasible after construction. The basis for calculation of the necessary joint width is the technical values of the joint sealant and the adjacent building materials, plus the exposure of the building, its method of construction and its dimensions
