Modern synthetic adhesives have a wide range of applications for building both industrial and commercial. Correct a stable value of moisture. There are situations where it is given too much confidence in the performance of silicon. Traditional methods to provide weather resistance in wide turns and welding. Due to the change in the modern coverage, a number of these methods have been replaced by roof leaks, or putty. Sealants were never designed to replace good detail and should be used sparingly. The ideal use for a sail kit is hidden between two materials that bathe to prevent entry of water by capillarity.
A sealant for the roof to reach their goal, it is important tires too low with the substrate. The right kit must be used to ensure full adhesion. For example, a kit is not compatible and does not bind to the bitumen. The most commonly used for roofing situations RTV silicone or room temperature vulcanizing. This type of sealant reacts with atmospheric moisture to cure.
Application of sealant
as they say without doubt at the instructions, clean the surface. This is the most important and most neglected to obtain a good seal with silicone or mastic. Also new roof to carry chemical residues used in the production process. Use of alcohol on a cloth to ensure that the surface is really clean and ready to accept the kit.
Once the silicone is in place firm pressure to ensure adhesion. Lap joints can be easily crushed and mechanically fastened together. Sealant is exposed to be smoothed up a finishing tool or wet hands. A hand dishwashing detergent and ten of water will stop the silicone stick hand and allow the silicone to be polished to a perfect finish. Treatment varies, but most of the joints must be sealed after four hours. Where possible, the joint must be protected against ultraviolet rays. Prolonged exposure to sunlight causes the silicone to reduce or crack.
