Product Description

Tremco Vulkem 116 One-Part, High-Performance Polyurethane Sealant 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 capability. Tremco Vulkem® 116 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. Color: Gray Contents of Cartridge: 10.1 fl oz (300 ml) Tremco Vulkem 116 Color Chart 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). Joint Backing: 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

I used Tremco Vulken 116 to fill the gap between the concrete and the coping on my swimming pool. The gap averages about 1/2 to 3/4 inch and has to be sealed to maintain the warranty on the pool. I originally thought I would use the Tremco with a manual caulk gun, as I have with many other sealants. I quickly found that this is a very thick product and required a massive amount of hand pressure to get it to leave the tube. To maintain the amount of pressure and move along the gap consistently was beyond my strength level. I ended up ordering a Dewalt 18v power caulk gun to finish the product. Using the power caulk gun it took (1) tube to fill 8 feet of gap at a depth of 1/4+ inches. The power caulk gun has a variable control so it was easy to set it up to get exactly the amount of product I needed. The manufacturer indicates that pressure should be applied to seal the product to concrete and a concave seal is preferred. I ended up using the back side of a spoon to smooth out the joint since anything else quickly got stuck in the tacky substance. I should also mention I taped both sides of the joint with a type of duct tape used for stucco walls. Once the bead of Tremco was laid, I smooth out the product. Waited 15 minutes and pulled up the tape, pulling up at an angle towards the joint. I laid the tape in a long strip and while pulling I rolled it on to itself. This is very tacky stuff and doesn't clean up easily if it gets on brick and concrete.

Last thing to know about this product is it takes days-weeks to cure. Add days if over 90 degrees. It skins fairly quickly but wind will blow things into it. Dirt/sand/stuff will get into it. So clean around the space completely. Vacuum dirt out of crevices. This stuff will last 15+ years. Its worth doing it right.

I used around 12 tubes of these around my pool. I had a local pool company comes to my house to give me a quote on sealing the pool expansion joint. They quote me a total of around $1200/- (there are not that many pools in North West so pool companies rip you off on everything). Since I am an avid DIY'er, I decide to tackle the project my self. All in all it took me around 6 hrs which included cleaning out the existing sealant, inserting foam backing rod and then installing this product.

I did not use any caulking gun. Pool expansion joint was anywhere between 1/8" to 1/2". I cut the nozzle at around 1/4" inch bead and was able to squeeze out the thick sealant relatively easy.

Steps that I followed for filing pool expansion joint (somebody else had these steps mentioned in a different review on Amazon):
1 Clean/Cut out up existing sealant
2 Wire brush and vacuum
3 Insert foam backing rod as much required
4 Use masking tape around both edges that you are filling (this product is thick and clean up is very hard)
5 Wear latex gloves, product is very tacky
--Repeat steps 6,7 and 8 after every few feet
6 Squeeze out product
7 Use plastic or metal spoon to level out the sealant (have lots of denatured alcohol handy, dip spoon in alcohol after leveling every 3-4 inches of sealant)
8 Rip out masking tape (don't wait too long as the edges will stick out), fix minor imperfections with fingers dipped in alcohol)
9 Let it dry. Here in Seattle, it took more than 2 weeks to get it dry to touch (70-80 degree days)

After few days the product has a nice even finished surface

Each tube had a spread of between 7ft to 11 ft depending on how wide was the expansion gap.

When our home was built twenty years ago the builder use the Vulkem 116 caulking/sealant. I recently needed to remove the old sealant and replace it with new. Could not find the product locally, but did find it immediately at Amazon. The new product I received was just like the original product which lasted twenty years. I am very pleased with Amazon and with the vendor of the Vulkem 116 sealant.

I have an in-ground hot tub that has 1 inch tiles installed on it's surface. 10 years ago I had about 100 of them come loose due to failing grout and I used Valkem 116 to glue them in. Now it's time to completely redo the tiles...and guess what...the ones held in by the Valkem are very difficult to remove. It's as if they are being held in with very strong chewing gum. If you want a product that will last a long time, under adverse conditions, this stuff works.

I used this stuff to seal up the joints around the pool. Word of working: Don't get this stuff on your hands. It's really hard to get out and it smells. Do yourself a favor and wear some gloves. Like ZenReader stated, you don't want to use a manual caulk gun for this. I used an air pressured caulking gun at 40 psi and followed the advice from ZenReader and everything turned out great. It's also helpful to buy one of those oscillating tools to remove the existing sealant (if any). You should also consider putting some backer rod. With a little patience (particularly taping around the joint) this is a very strait-forward DIY job.

Note// Use plastic gloves and use a strong solution of Dawn and water to smooth edges. Homedepot sells this for $4.95
