Joint Design


The joint width must be designed to suit the joint movement required and the movement capability of the sealant. The joint width shall be ≥ 10 mm and ≤ 40 mm. The joint depth shall be ≤ 20 mm. A width to depth ratio of 2:1 must be maintained (for exceptions, see table below).

Standard joint widths for joints between concrete elements:
Joint distance [m] Min. joint width [mm] Min. joint depth [mm]
2 10 10
4 15 10
6 20 10
8 30 15
10 35 17

All joints must be correctly designed and dimensioned in accordance with the relevant standards, before their construction. The basis for calculation of the necessary joint widths are the type of structure and its dimensions, the technical values of the adjacent building materials and the joint sealing material, as well as the specific exposure of the building and the joints.

For larger joints, please contact Sika/Rawlins Technical Support on 0113 2455450 (option 2) or send a message to [email protected].



Surface Preparation


The key to good sealant adhesion is a clean surface! You must always check with the supplier of the substrate to ensure that the cleaning procedures and products are compatible with the substrate.

To ensure good adhesion the substrate must be clean, dry, sound and homogeneous, free from oils, grease, dust and loose or friable particles. Depending on the condition of the surface, porous substrates may require abrasion steps in addition.



Backing


Sikasil-670 Fire may adhere to only two sides of the joint in order to perform properly. The bottom surface of the sealant must be free to deform. If the bottom of sealant adheres, the sealant will rupture during deformation. Backing rods are used to avoid adhesion to the joint’s bottom and to limit its depth.

In most cases, closed cell PE backers are used in combination with Sikasil-670 Fire – For specific cases, refer to the relevant classification reports, ETA’s or similar.

To provide sufficient backpressure during sealant application, the backing rod should be ~25% larger than the joint width. Sizing differs among backing rod types; refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations.



Product Application


IMPORTANT: The sealant must fill the entire joint or cavity and be in full contact with the joint sides. If the joint is improperly filled, good adhesion will not be achieved, and the joint’s performance will be weakened.

Application Instructions


Substrate Preparation

The substrate must be clean, dry, sound and homogeneous, free from oils, grease, dust and loose or friable particles. Sikasil-670 Fire adheres without primers and/or activators.

 

Application Method/Tools

Sikasil-670 Fire is supplied ready to use.

After the necessary substrate preparation, insert a suitable backing rod to the required depth and apply any primer if necessary.

Insert a foil pack or cartridge into the sealant gun and extrude Sikasil-670 Fire into the joint making sure that it comes into full contact with the sides of the joint and avoids any air entrapment.

Sikasil-670 Fire sealant must be firmly tooled against the joint sides to ensure adequate adhesion. It is recommended to use masking tape where exact joint lines or neat lines are required. Remove the tape within the skin time. Do not use tooling products containing solvents.

 

Cleaning of Tools

Clean all tools and application equipment immediately after use with Sika Remover-208. Once cured, residual material can only be removed mechanically. For cleaning skin use Sika Cleaning Wipes-100.
