Silcor® LM PU Sealant

One-part elastomeric polyurethane sealant

Product Description

A high performance elastomeric joint sealant based on proven polyurethane elastomer technology. Silcor LM PU Sealant is a neutral cure system that reacts on exposure to atmospheric moisture. When cured, it forms a durable waterproof seal, which makes it suitable for most applications.

Features

Silcor LM PU Sealant Sealant has excellent adhesion to most surfaces including concrete, brickwork, natural and artificial stone, steel, aluminium, wood, ceramic tiles, rigid plastics and fibre cement sheet.

  • Good UV resistance, long life
  • Single-pack — no mixing
  • Low modulus for high movement
  • Total adhesion — no water tracking
  • Hard wearing, permanently flexible
  • Can be painted after full curing has occurred

Uses

Silcor LM PU Sealant is a multi-purpose adhesive sealant with a wide cross section of use in construction and industrial application.

It is ideal for sealing joints in concrete panels, tiles, fibrous cement products, external cladding panels, block work and brickwork.

Silcor LM PU Sealant is used for gap and crack filling, angle fillets, bedding hobs and sealing outlets before application of primers from GCP Applied Technologies and the full waterproof membrane system.

It is also used as:

  • Gap filler between window or door frames
  • Adhesive for shower hobs before waterproofing
  • Adhesive for ceramic tiles subject to impact

Preparation

Surfaces must be sound, smooth and free from dust, laitance, loose matter, oil or other contaminants.

Good adhesion can be achieved on clean, dry, uncontaminated concrete, brickwork, timber, metals, ceramics and most coating surfaces without use of primers. However, adhesion to some surfaces may be improved by use of a primer. For any specific application needs contact your local GCP representative.
