HygieneSeal is a high modulus, single component, moisture-curing adhesive and sealant based on Hy-Spec Hybrid Technology.
HygieneSeal is protected by BioCote Silver Antimicrobial Technology to create a product upon which bacteria/microbes cannot survive making it easier to maintain a hygienic surface.
This is superior to traditional antibacterial materials used in sealants which degrade over time and are not as effective against bacteria and viruses including; MRSA, E. coli, Campylobacter, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Listeria and Legionella.
Biocote protected HygieneSeal has been proven to reduce bacteria and microbes by up to 99.99% versus MOD ISO22196:2011
Permanent elastic sealing is achieved to almost all materials including timber, metals, brickwork, GRP, glass, ceramics, PVCu, concrete and most plastics (except PP, PE and PTFE) even in wet conditions.
Application temperature range: + 5°C to + 30°C
Curing rate: Cures at a rate of 2-3mm in 24 hours at 23°C @ 50% RH. Lower temperatures and drier conditions will result in a slower rate of cure
Shelf life: 18 months in original unopened packaging in cool, dry condition with temperatures of +5°C to +25°C
Skinning time: Skin forms after approximately 25 minutes
Tack free time: Approximately 40 minutes (23°C & 65% RH)
Joint design: Please consult the Technical Information Sheet entitled ‘Joint design for cartridge-based products’ prior to application.
Surface preparation: All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from frost, grease and loose materials. Apply primer if required. Most substrates only require priming if testing indicates it is needed. Apply using a skeleton gun into the joint ensuring good contact with surfaces. In situations where an especially neat finish is required, use masking tape to cover the face edges of the joint and remove immediately once tooling has been completed.
Tooling: Tool immediately after application
