Product information

wedi Joint Sealant is a single component Silyl Modified Polymer (SMP) for use in wedi product system installations as specified in installation manuals. The product is especially formulated for high green strength (high internal strength), adhesion in wet and alkaline environments, and permanent flexibility. The product forms watertight seals on and in joints and in seams, and allows for dissipation of stress caused by shock, vibration or thermal movement.

Particularly in comparison to traditional sealing tape and reinforcing mesh solutions applied in thinset mortar, the wedi Joint Sealant performs better in terms of water protection and stress and movement protections. Thinset mortar bonded tape applications will naturally allow water to migrate below the tape while wedi Joint Sealant seals to surfaces without the thinset mortar as an absorbing layer in between. Where assemblies are exposed to normal movement, traditional thinset bonded tape or mesh can only protect or add reinforcing strength up to the performance of the thinset mortar embedding it. If the thinset mortar fails, and they are not designed a crack isolation products, the tape will naturally fail with it.

wedi Joint Sealant with its direct and tenacious adhesion, yet an elongation potential of 220% provides added protections against movement. The same formulation of product was originally formulated , and is today used to seal assemblies in US military vehicles utilized in difficult terrain and exposed to sudden shock and vibration. On this basis, wedi added specific performance attributes to benefit the wedi installation performance.

However, if movement or settling exceeds what a typical tile as the surface finish can tolerate as per ANSI 118.12, which is exposure up to 1/16”, no sealant or tape or even shower liner can protect. It is therefore imperative to follow structural building codes (IRC and IBC) to install tile and underlayment product only over structurally sound and service condition acclimated ( wood) and cured ( concrete) substrates. Excessive movement may be tolerated initially as long as the substrate regains its original setting ( no excessive permanent settling can be protected against). The wedi Joint Sealant is of high viscosity and exhibits excellent non-sag properties.

Areas of use wedi Joint sealant

  • Recommended application temperatures: 41°F – 95°F (5°C – 35°C)
  • In low humidity environments with relative humidity below 50% the skin formation time and curing process may be greatly extended. Conditioning of the installation area with humidifiers 24 hours prior to installation may greatly help. Alternatively, a moist sponge may be used to treat seam araeas to be sealed prior to sealant application( avoid puddling and dripping water).
  • For cold weather application, condition units to 70°F prior to use.
  • For best performance, sealants and adhesives should be applied to a joint at the midpoint of its designed expansion-contraction cycle.
  • Place nozzle/tip into joint and fill as required in installation manuals. Maintain consistent and continuous beads.

Limitations:

  • Alcohol must not be used in preparation for bonding as it will stop the curing process.
  • Do not apply on surfaces below 40° F (4°C).
  • Relevant testing should always be performed by the user as wedi does not recommend wedi Joint Sealant as fit for any particular use besides the wedi product systems installations as specified in applicable wedi product literature.

Surface requirements:
For use as specified in wedi product system installations. General requirements: For reliable, repeatable and durable results, wedi joint sealant must be applied to clean, dry, sound and frost free surfaces, free of contaminants including, but not limited to paints, oils, oxide films, mold release agents, and dirt. wedi Joint sealant offers high green strength (internal strength) and permanently flexible adhesion in wedi construction joints and when exposed to alkaline environments.

Precautionary Information:
In case of contact with eyes, lips, or mouth, consult SDS. Applicable for 20 oz. unit material, and 10 oz. cartridge material.
