However, it is only required if testing indicates a need or where the sealant will be subjected to water immersion after cure.

Sikaflex® -11FC is suitable for use in temperature ranging from 4°C to 38°C. Use Caulking gun when applying the sealant. Place the nozzle of the gun into the bottom of the joint and work your way up until the entire joint is filled. Keep the nozzle in the sealant and continue on with a steady flow of sealant preceding the nozzle to avoid air entrapment. Furthermore, it is advised to avoid overlapping of sealant over the joint as to eliminate entrapment of air.
