Vulkem® 116 is a one-part, moisture-curing, gun-grade polyurethane sealant. It is durable, flexible, and offers excellent performance in dynamic joints. Vulkem 116 has a 30-year history of delivering superior primerless adhesion to porous substrates, which makes it the choice for sealing expansion joints in commercial construction applications. Vulkem 116 is also suitable for certain water immersion applications and is rated for 25% movement capability. The cure of the sealant can be accelerated with the addition of the Vulkem Catalyst 45/116.

Coverage rates: 308 linear feet of joint per gallon for a 1/4 Inch x 1/4 Inch (6mm x 6mm) joint.
Joint Design: Vulkem 116 may be used in any vertical or horizontal joint designed in accordance with accepted architectural/engineering practices.
Joint Backing: Closed cell or reticulated polyethylene backer rod is recommended as joint backing to control sealant depth and to ensure intimate contact of sealant with joint walls when tooling. Where depth of joint will prevent the use of backer rod, an adhesive backed polyethylene tape (bond breaker tape) should be used to prevent three-sided adhesion. All backing should be dry at time of sealant application.
