Product Code: THIOFLEX600GG
Fosroc Thioflex 600: Multi-component, gun grade, polysulfide sealant. Packed in a ready to mix, 2.5 litre tin containing the base and curing agent in the correct proportions. For use in buildings and other applications where access for subsequent maintenance will be difficult.
Multi-component, gun grade, polysulfide sealant. The gun grade is ideal for general application. It is packed in a ready to mix, 2.5 litre tin containing the base and curing agent in the correct proportions. Thioflex 600 is particularly recommended for use in highrise buildings and other applications where access for subsequent maintenance will be difficult and the risk of early movement failure must be minimised. It is also suitable for sealing joints in brickwork, retaining walls, basements and subways.
Sealing movement joints in building and civil engineering structures, including superstructures, floors, basements and subways.
Meets key international standards
Forms a tough, elastic, rubber-like seal
Accommodates continuous and pronounced cyclic movement
Excellent adhesion to most common substrates, including primed concrete, glass, aluminium and stainless steel
High resistance to ageing reduces physical damage due to climatic extremes
Thioflex 600 may be applied to joints between 5 and 50 mm wide. Joints which are expected to experience cyclic movements should be designed to an optimum width : depth ratio of 2 : 1, subject to the overriding recommended minimum sealant depths set out below: 5 mm for metals, glass and other non-porous surfaces; 10 mm for all porous surfaces; 20 mm for trafficked joints and those subject to hydrostatic pressures.
To ensure that the sealant remains within its stated movement capacity (25% MAF), sealing slot widths should be designed in accordance with the recommendations of BS 6093.
The use of a surface primer is always required on porous surfaces. On non-porous surfaces a primer is not normally required except where glass or glazed surfaces are to be permanently immersed in water.
