CSIS-Series

♦ Long-lasting life due to not being affected by ozone or ultraviolet rays. Has excellent stability in regards to movement capability and modules
♦ Movement capability of +/- 50%
♦ Aesthetics allow for larger joint design which reduces stress on the bond line, increasing the chances of successful sealant installation
♦ Primer-less adhesion to a variety of substrates including masonry and concrete. No staining
♦ Easy to install. No anchoring systems, mechanical fasteners, cutting of substrates or waiting for expansion to accrue
♦ Caulking the reveals on each of the cured sealants makes it necessary to fill to full depth -  no "cheating" on the amount of sealant placed
♦ Available in 16 standard colors. Custom colors available upon request

♦ Made from a monolithic piece of foam that will not delaminate like multi-layer products
♦ Consistent depth of product
♦ Used for joints up to 12” wide
♦ Allows for up to 50% (+25%) movement
♦ Can be permanently bonded to the joint substrate
♦ Not based on asphaltic or bitumastic impregnation

EWJ-Series Custom Colors Available - The primary visual seals are extruded from Santoprene® material. The seal may be custom colored to coordinate with any building’s façade. Standard colors include black, white, tan, and gray.
♦ Once the extruded aluminum frames are attached to the walls, the seals easily snap-fit into the frames.
♦ There are two different profile configurations to suit a variety of design applications. The first profile is our smooth seal which utilizes fewer ‘V’s for those who require only 50% movement. Our second profile is our ridge seal which utilizes multiple ‘V’s to achieve 100% movement
♦ Seals can be heat-fused at directional changes to ensure weather-tight junctures. Parapet transitions are factory produced to ensure a continuous weather barrier.
N/A Varies - 50% or 100% depending on profile choice 2" to 6"

(50.8mm to 152.4)

AR-Series ♦ System consists of two items: a compression seal and a lubricant-adhesive
♦ Will seal an expansion or contraction joint opening from the intrusion of water and debris
♦ Designed for constant compression throughout the range of joint movement
♦ Compression seal is available in the color black (neoprene material)
♦ Lubricant-adhesive is a single-part, moisture-curing polyurethane and aromatic hydrocarbon solvent mixture
