Applicable Standards

Dymeric 240FC meets or exceeds the requirements of the following specifications:

• ASTM C920-02 Type M, Grade NS, Class 50, Use I (Class 2), T, NT, M, A and O (granite)

• U.S. Federal Specification TT-S-00227E Class A, Type II • CAN/CGSB 19.24-M90 Class B, Type II

Joint Design

Dymeric 240FC may be used in any vertical or horizontal joint designed in accordance with accepted architectural/engineering practices. Joint width should be 4 times anticipated movement, but not less than 1/4” (6.4 mm).

Joint Backing

Closed cell or reticulated polyethylene backer rod is recommended as joint backing to control sealant depth and
to ensure intimate contact of sealant with joint walls when tooling. Where depth of joint will prevent the use of backer rod, an adhesive backed polyethylene tape (bond breaker tape) should be used to prevent three-sided adhesion. All backing should be dry at time of sealant application.
