When forming expansion joints with QUICSEAL 406 in in-situ concrete, joint-sealing slots can be readily formed in the following manner. Before installing, simply cut off a strip of the required depth. Pin the strip back on using two-inch nails at intervals and install the filler flush with the finished surface. Prior to sealing the top strip can then be pulled easily from the joint to provide an uncontaminated sealing slot ready for preparation and sealing. As elastomeric sealants will not bond to QUICSEAL 406 therefore the additional need for bond-breaker strips is eliminated.
When installing QUICSEAL 406 in expansion joints between suspended slabs, Cut QUICSEAL 406 to required size and spot bond QUICSEAL 406 to the substrate using QUICSEAL 646 HYDRO-ADHESIVE. Apply 1 coat of QUICSEAL 406 Adhesive on the joint face and the substrate. Allow 20 – 30 minutes to dry before aligning the joint filler and applying pressure to ensure good adhesion.
