CJ-100 Adhesive

JOINTFLEX® BACKER ROD Closed Cell Polyethylene Filler

APPLICATION PROCEDURES

CJ-100 Adhesive is used to install Corkjoint’s range of hydrophilic waterstops and expansion joint fillerboards. 

  1. Surface must be clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, oil & water.
  2. Stir adhesive thoroughly before use.
  3. Apply the adhesive to both surfaces to be bonded with a dry, clean, brush or scraper to give a uniform coating.
  4. Allow the solvents to evaporate until adhesive film is “tacky” or “touch dry”. It will take between 10 to 20 minutes depending upon the surface porosity and the weather conditions.
  5. Position the coated surfaces accurately before assembling them, and upon installation, apply an even pressure to the installed material to consolidate the bond.
  6. Bond strength can be fully obtained after 24 hours.Read More

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
