Tremco Vulkem 116 One-Part, High-Performance
One-Part Grainy Textured Finish
Primerless Adhesion on Most Common Construction Surfaces
Durable and Flexible Seal
Features and Benefits:
Tremco Vulkem 116 has demonstrated superior primerless adhesion to porous
substrates for 30 years, and is the choice for sealing expansion joints in
commercial construction applications. It can be used exterior or interior with
adequate ventilation. Vulkem 116 is also suitable for certain water
immersion applications. Tremco Vulkem 116 is also rated for 25% movement
Sealant is a one-part moisture curing, gun grade polyurethane sealant.
Vulkem® 116 is durable, flexible, and
offers excellent performance in moving joints. No primer is required on most
construction materials, and it applies with conventional caulking guns. It is an
excellent general purpose sealant designed for use in precast, masonry, glazing,
window frame perimeters and similar types of construction joints. Suitable for
continual immersion in water with the appropriate primer. Designed for exterior
and interior use. The light grainy texture has proven very popular for matching
textured substrates like stucco and masonry, and for smooth metal storefront
joints the light texture blends and hides tooling marks and the wavy effect that
is inevitable when tooling sealants.

Joint Design: Vulkem 116 may be used in any vertical or horizontal joint
designed in accordance with accepted architectural/engineering practices. Joint
width should be 4 times anticipated movement, but not less than 1/4” (6.4mm).
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.
