ChemLink Multipurpose M-1 5oz. Structural Adhesive Sealant F1277WH
M-1® is a moisture curing, polyether adhesive sealant designed for applications in damp, dry, or cold climates. M-1® is solvent free and contains no isocyanates. M-1® will not shrink upon curing, will not discolor when exposed to UV light, and can not “out-gas”, or bubble on damp surfaces as urethane sealants often do. M-1® is capable of joint movement in excess of 25% in both compression and extension. M-1® can be used effectively in many difficult construction site conditions such as wet or dry climates and at temperatures as low as 32°F (0°C).
- Solvent free, 100% solids will not shrink
- Non-slump, applies vertically and overhead
- 20 minute skin over
- No outgassing on damp surfaces
- Good color stability, will not suntan
- Paintable within 24 hours (See limitations)
- Gun grade, no special tools or mixing required
- Application at temperatures as low as 32°F (0°C)
Joint surfaces should be clean, dry and free from all contamination including: dirt, oils, grease, tar, wax, rust and any other substance that may inhibit the sealant’s performance.
M1 Structural Adhesive/Sealant's Application Guidelines:
Prior to application remove any residual contamination by mechanical abrasion, sand blasting or power washing. On green concrete, remove all release agents, friable and loose concrete. Dry all visible and standing water prior to applying M-1®. Install an appropriate backer rod to avoid three-point bonding.
Prepare all metal to ensure maximum adhesion. Remove all rust, scale and residue by wire brushing to a bright metal sheen. Remove films, loose or inappropriate coatings and oils with an appropriate solvent such as alcohol. *CHEM LINK recommends that coated substrates be tested for adhesion prior to starting a project. Please contact Technical Services for specific application guidelines and recommendations.
Wood should be clean, sound and dry prior to sealant application. Allow treated wood to weather for six months prior to application. Remove all coatings and paint (or test for compatibility) to ensure proper bonding. Do not use on fire retardant lumber.
In most instances M-1® will not require a primer. However, certain applications or substrates may require a primer to ensure a long lasting bond and weatherproof seal. It is the applicator’s responsibility to determine the need for a primer. CHEM LINK recommends a primer be used for any application where prolonged immersion is anticipated.
Wet sealant can be removed using a solvent such as alcohol. Cured M-1® can be removed by abrading or scraping the substrate.
Store original, unopened containers in a cool, dry area. Protect unopened containers from water, heat and direct sunlight. Elevated temperatures will reduce shelf life. M-1® will not freeze.
Twelve months from date of manufacture when stored at 70°F / 21°C with 50% relative humidity. High temperature and high relative humidity may significantly reduce shelf life. Pails have a shelf life of six months
Remove all dirt, oil, loose paint, frost and other contamination from all working surfaces with alcohol DO NOT USE petroleum solvents such as mineral spirits or xylene. Maintain M-1® at room temperature before applying to ensure easy gunning and tooling. Test and evaluate to ensure adequate adhesion. Carefully gun the sealant with a smooth, continuous bead. If tooling is needed, do so within fifteen minutes of application.
