Non-Sag Joint Sealant
POURTHANE NS is an elastomeric, low-modulus, one-component, moisture-curing, non-sag, polyurethane sealant. The product requires no mixing and typically requires no priming to bond to many materials, including concrete and masonry.
POURTHANE NS has very good adhesion to most construction materials. It is particularly recommended for expansion joints between precast concrete panels and seams on wooden, aluminum, and PVC joinery. POURTHANE NS is highly recommended for bonding concrete and baked clay roof tiles. The product is designed for the civil and industrial construction markets.
- Ready to use and easy to gun and tool/No mixing and speeds application.
- Low VOC content.
- +/- 35% joint movement capability/Maintains flexibility in moving joints.
- No primer required for most construction materials/Cost reduction.
- Maintains excellent weather resistance/Gives long lasting joint seal.
- Delivers a practical service temperature range/Can be used in all climates.
- Packaged in cartridges, sausages, and in bulk/Jobsite waste is reduced.
- Superior bonding/Long lasting baked clay roof tile application.

Surface Preparation … Substrate must be clean, dry, and free of dust and grease. Be sure interfaces are free of curing compounds and/or saw residue.
Application Method … POURTHANE NS can be applied with a manual or pneumatic caulking gun. Use typical joint sealing practices and proper joint design of 2:1 width to depth ratio when applying. Horizontal joints require a minimum of 6.4 mm (1/4″) depth and maximum 12.7 mm (1/2″) depth. CERA-ROD™ from W. R. MEADOWS may be used as a joint backing material to control sealant depth and provide joint configuration. Condition material to 65⁰ – 75⁰ F (18.3° – 23.9° C) before using. After application, the product can be smoothed with a damp knife.
Cure Time … When applied at 25° C and 50% relative humidity, POURTHANE NS will develop a skin within 1.5 – 3 hours. After skin formation, the sealant will continue to cure 1.59 mm (1/16”) per day for the first three days after application. The cure rate will slow after three days as it becomes more difficult for moisture to penetrate and facilitate curing deeper within the sealant.
Skin formation and cure time will vary with ambient conditions. Sealant curing will slow at cooler temperatures and/or lower humidity, while curing is faster at higher temperatures and/or increased humidity.
Cleanup … Application tools can be cleaned with toluene or xylene before curing. Afterwards, mechanical cleaning will be required.
Check for compatibility to materials and working techniques not outlined above. POURTHANE NS must be fully cured prior to installation of other materials over the product. Do not apply on wet substrates. Do not apply at temperatures outside application temperature range. (See physical properties chart.) For joints subject to water immersion, use DECK-O-SEAL® 125 and/or DECK-O-SEAL GUN GRADE with REZI-WELD™ 1000 from W. R. MEADOWS.
