How to use bus body sealant Selflex PU 40 

Application Temperature:           +5 °C to +35 °C

Temperature Resistance:             -30 °C to +80 °C

The application surface must be solid, clean, dry and free of dust, oil and grease. Apply a primer if      necessary. If necessary, rub down metal surfaces before usage. Allow the substrate to dry after degreasing.

It is recommended to clean concrete with a metal brush.

Bus body PU Sealant;

  • Is capable of adhesion to cement-based building materials, brick, ceramic, marble, glass, wood, galvanize steel, aluminum and most plastic surfaces.
  • Used in construction industry, in the cavities of the joints between building elements
  • Used for joints and assembly of aluminum, PVC, wooden framing
  • Used for laying of roof tiles

Uses of PU40 sealant

  • Can be applied by a manual or pneumatic gun.
  • After application, it is needed to smooth the joint with soapy water.
  • It is suggested to use cartridge or sausage in 24 hours after opening .
  • Do not apply at a temperature under 5 °C.
  • In cold weather, store the packages at about 20 °C before use.
  • bus body PU sealant Selflex PU 40  can not be used on bituminous substrates, natural rubber, EPDM rubber or on building materials which might bleed oils, plasticizers or solvents which could attack the sealant.
  • If there is a moisture-vapor-transmission condition exists from the substrate as this can caus bubbling within the sealant.
  • Opened cartridges should be used the same day.
  • During application, avoid air-entrapment
  • There can be slightly color change in white and grey shades when exposed to ultraviolet rays.
  • Avoid contact with alcohol and other solvent cleaners during cure.
  • Maximum depth/width of sealant must not exceed 12 mm; minimum is 5 mm.

Cleaning

Tools can be cleaned with alcohol or acetone before the sealant has completely cured. After curing, abrasion is necessary.
