    Shelf Life Details Shelf life of Bostik® Chem-Calk® 900 must be checked prior to using the product, do not use past its shelf life. Caulk past its shelf life may not perform or adhere as described by this data sheet. High temperature and high relative humidity may reduce significantly the shelf life of polyurethane sealants. If you are unsure of the expiration date of your Bostik product, please call customer service at 1-888-603-8556 to check if the product is still within its shelf life.
  • Best Practices for Bostik Chem-Calk 950

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      See limitations about surface preparation. Surfaces must be structurally clean, dry (no frost) and structurally sound, free of contaminants, including but not limited to dust, dirt, loose particles, tar, asphalt, rust, mill oil, etc. If substrate is painted or coated, scrape away all loose and weakly bonded paint or coating. Any paint or coating that cannot be removed must be tested to verify adhesion of the sealant or to determine the appropriate surface preparation if needed. (See ASP section on next page for details.) To remove laitance and any other loose material, clean concrete, stone or other masonry materials with nonalcoholic-based solvent by washing, grinding, sandblasting or wire brushing as necessary . Do not use water to clean substrates. Dust must be thoroughly removed after cleaning.

    2. Curing

      Bostik® Chem-Calk® 950 is a moisture cure, polyurethane sealant. On wood, with ambient air at 50% relative humidity and at 73°F, polyurethane sealants will generally skin within twenty-four hour and cure 1/16 of an inch per day. Lower temperature and lower relative humidity will significantly increase the skin time and cure time of a polyurethane sealant.

    3. Clean-Up

      After dry-wiping uncured sealant from substrates and tools, remaining uncured sealant can be removed by using Xylene, Toluene or similar aromatic solvents. Please refer to the MSDSs provided for these solvents before use. Bostik® Hand and Tool towels can also remove uncured sealant. Cured sealant is usually very difficult to remove without altering or damaging the surface to which the sealant has been misapplied. Cured sealant can be removed by abrasion or other mechanical means (scrapers, putty knives).
