Application

How to apply Penebar SW-45 Rapid on poured-in-place construction joints:

  • Carefully brush off all dust and debris and apply a coat of appropriate Penebar Primer to the area where the Penebar SW-45 Rapid is to be placed.
  • Using the heel of the hand and moderate pressure, press a continuous bead of Penebar SW-45 Rapid firmly into position. Check to be certain that the sealant had bonded to the primed area.
  • Splice the ends to form a continuous, uninterrupted seal. For the best results, cut each end at an opposite 45° angle and position the cut ends together.
  • Gently kneed the sliced ends creating an uninterrupted seal.
  • Peel the protective backing from the exposed side of the Penebar SW-45 Rapid.
  • Pour the mating structural member into position.

    Application notes

    • Always use Penebar Primer to avoid displacement of the Penebar SW-45 Rapid during concrete pouring. It may be necessary to utilise masonry nails or other mechanical means.
    • Place Penebar SW-45 Rapid so that it is no closer than 2″ (5cm) away from the outer surface of the poured structure. If a Keyway is utilised, place the Penebar SW-45 Rapid into the bottom of the formed Keyway area.
