  • Best Practices for Bostik Chem-Calk 600

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Application

      Install back-up material or joint filler, spacer shims and tapes as specified in the Bostik Sealant Application Guide. Apply Chem-Calk® 600 in a continuous operation using a positive pressure adequate to properly fill and seal the joint. Tool the sealant with adequate pressure to spread the sealant against the back-up material and onto the joint surfaces. A tool with a concave profile is recommended to keep the sealant within the joint.

    2. 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 compatible solvent by washing, grinding, sandblasting or wire brushing as necessary . Do not use water to clean substrates. Dust must be thoroughly removed after cleaning.

    3. Clean-Up

      Soap and water cleanup

      excess sealant should be dry-wiped from all surfaces while still uncured, following with a solvent wipe using water or a commercial solvent such as xylol, toluol, or methyl ethyl ketone. Should sealant accidentally begin to cure on adjacent porous surfaces, the excess sealant should be allowed to progress through the initial cure or setup. It should be removed promptly by abrasion or other mechanical means. CURED SEALANT IS USUALLY VERY DIFFICULT TO REMOVE WITHOUT ALTERING OR DAMAGING THE SURFACE TO WHICH THE SEALANT HAS BEEN MISAPPLIED.
