QUIKRETE® Expertise Adheres To Bonding And Sealing

Published on 2004-06-14. Author : SpecialChem


The QUIKRETE® Companies extended its line of commercial grade products with the introduction of two polyurethane sealants and a polyurethane adhesive. The new Polyurethane Self-Leveling Sealant, Polyurethane Non-Sag Sealant and Polyurethane Construction Adhesive are one-component products used for a variety of commercial applications and materials.

"These polyurethane products greatly compliment what is already an extensive line of QUIKRETE® commercial-grade products," said Dennis Winchester, QUIKRETE® executive vice president. "By translating our recognized experience and technology into this product category, contractors can address many bonding and sealing projects in complete confidence."

QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Self-Leveling Sealant is ideal for primerless sealing and bonding of common building materials. The permanent-flexible polymeric multi-purpose product was specifically designed for flowing into horizontal crevices and general purpose horizontal joint sealing applications. QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Self-Leveling Sealant is designed for waterproofing and sealing horizontal construction joints and cracks in sidewalks, driveways, industrial floors, parking decks, roadways, general purpose joint sealing, and flashing and waterproofing membranes below grade. QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Self-Leveling Sealant, which is non-staining and has virtually no shrinkage is currently available in 10.1 oz. (300 ml) and 29.1 oz. (858 ml) tubes.

QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Non-Sag Sealant is a permanent-flexible polymeric multi-purpose product used for sealing vertical and overhead joints in concrete, masonry, and stucco, caulking around window and door openings and waterproofing cracked concrete. In addition to excellent bonding and adhesive strength, QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Non-Sag Sealant has very high abrasion and tear resistance. QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Non-Sag Sealant is currently available in 10.1 oz. (300 ml) tubes.

QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Construction Adhesive is a fast-cure, permanently flexible product appropriate for adhesive applications involving pre-painted metals, plywood, glass, aluminum, steel and many plastics and composites. QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Construction Adhesive is ideal for repairing broken concrete and fastening wood, polystyrene insulation, metal or glass to concrete and masonry surfaces. The permanent elastic bond characteristic makes QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Construction Adhesive perfect for perimeter sealing and bonding materials that expand at different rates. QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Construction Adhesive is currently available in 10.3 oz. (300 ml) tubes.

Tested to ASTM standards, the three new QUIKRETE® polyurethane products require the removal of dirt, oil, moisture and old adhesives and sealants before application. After sanding or grinding to expose sound surface, cut the plastic tip to desired size and puncture airtight seal at the base of the tip. Using a caulk gun, force product into the area being bonded or sealed and smooth to desired shape.

The QUIKRETE® Companies, headquartered in Atlanta, is the North American leader in packaged concrete products. QUIKRETE® has more than 75 manufacturing facilities, with plants located throughout the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and South America.
