How to use

Joint preparation

The joint surface must be clean, dry and free from oil, loose particles, cement laitance and other contaminants which may affect the adhesion. A thorough wire brushing, grinding, sand blasting or solvent cleaning may be required to expose a clean and sound substrate. On painted surfaces all loosely adhering paint must be removed (contamination will reduce the strength of the bond), if in doubt remove all previous decorations. To optimize adhesion of both the primer and the sealant, remove all round or sharp edges and corners. Ensure that the surface is absolutely dry before the primer is applied.

Application

Polyprime PS shall be applied to clean, dry surface prior to the installation of backer rod or bond breaking tape. Polyprime PS can be applied by a brush in one thin and uniform coat. The sealant shall be applied only after the primer becomes tackfree. A recoat of the primer is required to be applied on the surfaces if the sealant application gets delayed by more than 3 hours after application of the primer. For obtaining a clean and neat finish, masking tape shall be applied on both the edges of the groove before applying the primer and shall be removed once the sealant installation is complete. 

Cleaning

Clean all tools with Polysolvent immediately after use. Hardened materials can be removed mechanically only.
