Product Description

Tremsil® 600 is a one-part, neutral cure, fast skinning, medium modulus silicone sealant. The sealant cures to a flexible rubber when exposed to moisture present in the air.

Basic Uses

Tremsil 600 is ideal for use as an in-plant glazing sealant for applications that include, back-bedding, cap, heel and toe beads, and sash joinery. Tremsil 600 is compatible to most common porous and non-porous building components and has excellent adhesion to aluminum, stainless steel, metals, glass, plastics, rigid PVCs, wood, brick, concrete and painted surfaces. Tremsil 600 is also designed for application through automated glazing equipment, (i.e., x-y tables).

INSTALLATION

Joint Design

May be used in any joint designed in accordance with accepted architectural/engineering practices. Joint width should be 4 times anticipated movement, but not less than 1/4 inch (6mm) wide.

Joint Dimensions

For joints 1/4 inch (6mm) to 1/2 inch (13mm) wide, the width to depth ratio should be equal. Joints 1/2 inch (13mm) wide or greater should have a depth of 1/2 inch (13mm). Minimum joint size 1/4 inch by 1/4 inch (6mm by 6mm).

Surface Preparation

For good adhesion, the joint interface must be sound, clean and dry. Depending on the substrates, the joint surface may require a thorough wire brushing, grinding, sandblasting, solvent washing and/or primer.

Tooling & Cleaning

Tooling is recommended immediately after application to ensure firm, intimate contact with the joint interface. Dry tooling is preferred. Cleaning can be accomplished with solvents such as IPA or MEK while sealant is in uncured state.
