Priming

The use of a primer is generally not required when using Vetofl ex PU780. However where hard to bond substrates such as PVC or where highly porous substrates are in question, please contact Saveto local office for assistance on suitable primer choice.

Application


Cut and remove the end of the sachet and place sachet in the Saveto bulk gun. Fit the nozzle and cut at 45 degrees to a suitable size for sealing the joint. Extrude the sealant firmly in to the joint. Tool flush within 5 minutes of application to ensure good contact between the sealant and the substrate.

Cleaning

Vetoflex PU780 should be removed from tools, equipment and mixers with Vetonit Solvent XX400 immediately after use. Hardened material can only be removed mechanically.

Surface Preparation

Clean all joint surfaces and remove any dust, unsound material, plaster, oil, paint, grease, corrosion deposits or algae. Roughen the surfaces, remove any laitence and expose aggregate by light scabbling or grit-blasting. Oil and grease deposits should be removed by steam cleaning, detergent scrubbing or the use of a proprietary degreaser. Any expansion joint filler must be checked to ensure it is tightly packed and no gaps or voids exist at the base of the sealing slot before positioning a bond breaker. The use of a bond breaker is not required in expansion joints containing cellular polyethylene joint filler, backing rod (Vetofl ex PBR). For construction or contraction joints a bond breaker tape or back-up strip must be used.

Where a particularly neat finish is required, mask the face edges of the joint before sealing and remove immediately after tooling is completed.
