Application Information
Instructions for use

Design Criteria

Vetoflex PU780 use should follow standard concrete joints practices; sealants need either backing rod or joint breaker tapes to prohibit 3 point adhesion and allow movement freedom in the desired design. Saveto recommends the use of ACI 224.3-95 (re-approved 2013) for joint design.

Joint Design

Standard design dimensions for concrete elements as per DIN 18 540 /table 3:

Joint Distance (m) 2 2-3.5 3.5-5 5-6.5 6.5-8
Design Joint Width (mm) 15 20 25 30 35
Minimum Joint Width (mm) 10 15 20 25 30
Joint Depth 8 10 12 15 15

Priming

The use of a primer is generally not required when using Vetofl ex PU780. However, where it is 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 the 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 into the joint. Tool flush within 5 minutes of application to ensure good contact between the sealant and the substrate.

Cleaning

Remove Vetoflex PU780 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 laitance and expose aggregate by light scabbling or grit-blasting. Remove oil and grease deposits by steam cleaning, detergent scrubbing, or use a proprietary degreaser. Before positioning a bond breaker, check any expansion joint filler to ensure it is tightly packed with no gaps or voids at the base of the sealing slot. The use of a bond breaker is not required in expansion joints containing cellular polyethylene joint filler, backing rod (Vetoflex PBR). For construction or contraction joints, use a bond breaker tape or back-up strip.

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