Acrylic sealant


 

Acrylic is a one-component  universal acrylic sealant suitable for filling cracks and joints both indoors and outdoors. It's a cost-effective plastic-elastic sealant ideal for particularly static joints.
 
Features &Benefits:
• Over paintable
• Very low VOC content
• Very easy to apply and clean
• Water-proof after curing
• Can be used on all porous surfaces such as brick , concrete, wood etc.
• No odour
 
Applications: 
• Sealing of low movement joints between various construction materials (wood, concrete, brick etc.)
• Filling cracks in walls and on ceilings
• Sealing joints between windows, walls, doors etc.
 
Instructions:
• The joints must be clean and free from dust, grease and rust
• No primer is required for non-porous surfaces. On porous surfaces such as concrete, stone, cement and plaster a primer (mixture of one part acrylic sealant and 4-5
  parts of water) can be applied
• Min/max joint width must be 5mm/25mm. The recommended joint depth/width ratio is 1 to 2. Application temperature is between +5 °C and +35 °C
• Immediately after the application, smooth the sealant at once with wet finger or a wet tool
• Excess sealant can be removed by a wet cloth
• Keep the sealed joint dry at least for two hours
• Cured sealant can be removed mechanically

• CE marked for EN 15651 for façade, glazing and sanitary applications
 
Restrictions:
• Should not be applied for sealing joints permanently exposed to water.
• It should not be applied in case of risk of rain or frost.
• It can be painted barely with paints that are sufficiently elastic.
• Akfix AC605 is not elastic; therefore it must not be used in expansion joints.
