Zwaluw Silicone-NO was specifically developed for durable elastic sealing of connection and expansion joints in concrete, brickwork, curtain wall constructions, glazing systems (1), kitchens, bathrooms and showers and for industrial applications. Remark (1) Compatibility of the edge seals of insulation glass with glazing sealants cannot be guaranteed by the supplier of the sealant, as the composition of the edge seals can be changed by the producer without notice. Any advice on the compatibility of glazing sealants to the edge seals of insulation glass is based on experience and therefore not guaranteed.
Before applying your sealant ensure the surface is clean and dust free. Cut the cartridge seal and screw on nozzle which should be cut to required size. Gun sealant firmly into joint ensuring no air is trapped behind. If required place masking tape along joint edges, removing within 5 minutes of application. Tack free in approx 10 minutes. A joint with the correct dimensions is able to absorb movements between building materials. The joint depth should always be in the correct relationship of the joint width. A general rule is the ratio of joint depth to the width of the joint with a joint width up to 10mm is 1:1, with a minimum of 5mm in width and depth. For joints wider than 10mm, the depth is the width divided by 3 plus 6mm.
