Description

Gaps Sealer AS-1000 of ALSEAL is a versatile, economical, environmentally friendly acrylic sealant for general purpose caulking and sealing applications. It is paintable and has good adhesion to most porous surfaces. The sealant is formulated with a good body thus able to withstand pressure during the installation. It is suitable for sealing gaps and joints where slight movements or vibration if occurred, could cause conventional, non-elastic fillers and putties to crack and fall off. It can be applied smoothly and easily and can be cleaned up with water.

AS-1000 Gaps Sealer is designed for general sealing applications such as doors and windows joints, built-in cabinets and wardrobes installation, architraves, skirting boards of wood flooring, etc.
It comes as the main gaps sealer and is suitable for various substrates such as metal, PVC, wood, concrete, gypsum boards, reinforced cement boards, marble, and other building materials.

  • Tool the sealant within 5 minutes of extrusion before it skins.
  • Allow drying for one hour before applying water-based paint and 24 hours for oil-based paint.
  • Wet sealant is easy to clean up with a damp cloth.

Joint design

  • The specified bead size must calculate taking into account the compressive and tensile properties of the sealant relative to the intended joint width due to expansion and contraction.
  • The minimum bead size should not be less than 3 mm to ensure movement.
  • The ratio of the width and depth of the joint in the sealant structure should be 2: 1.

Limitation

Not recommended for the following applications:
