SEALTIGHT POLY-JET 3406 is a
single-component, hot-applied sealant for use in sealing cracks and joints in
portland concrete pavements that may be subject to fuel spillage. SEALTIGHT
POLY-JET 3406 is not compatible with asphalt concrete pavements.
Supplied in liquid form in 5 gallon (18.93 liter) pails, SEALTIGHT POLY-JET 3406
is a unique, high-quality, hot-applied compound with excellent resistance to
degradation from spillage of jet fuel, gasoline, motor oil and anti-freeze.
SEALTIGHT POLY-JET 3406 is specifically formulated to meet and exceed all the
performance requirements of ASTM for "Joint Sealant, Hot-Applied,
Elastomeric, Jet-Fuel Resistant-Type for Portland Cement Pavements."
SEALTIGHT POLY-JET 3406 is self-leveling and cures to a tough, resilient seal
that is durable, provides low-temperature flexibility and will not track.

Use and Application
While heating, the sealant will go
through a phase change in its viscosity, starting out thin and becoming quite
thick between 180ºF (82ºC) and 225ºF (107ºC) as the polymers crosslink.
Above 225ºF (107ºC), the sealant will thin back down to a pourable viscosity.
Do not exceed the safe heating temperature [280ºF (138ºC)] as this will
significantly reduce the pot life of the material and may cause the material to
convert to a solid. If this should occur, the sealant must be removed from the
melter immediately. (NOTE: POLY-JET 3406 cannot be re-melted once it has cured
to its solid form.) At the safe heating temperature, the application life is a
minimum of 6 hours.
SEALTIGHT POLY-JET 3406 must be heated in an oil-jacketed melter-applicator
equipped with an agitator and separate temperature thermometers for the oil bath
and heating vat. Heat only sufficient material to be used the same day. Material
may be added as the sealant is withdrawn only if application is stopped and
material is allowed to go through a heating cycle. Sealing may be done at air
temperatures of 40ºF (4ºC) or higher. (NOTE: Application of sealant into
frozen or wet pavement will result in loss of bond and premature failure of the
sealant.) At the end of each day's sealing operation, all remaining material
must be drawn off.
SEALTIGHT POLY-JET 3406 is not compatible with asphalt-based joint sealants. All
equipment should be thoroughly cleaned prior to use. If flushing oil is used,
drain all remaining flushing oil from the equipment including the kettle, pump,
lines and hoses.
JOINT PREPARATION - Suggested joint configuration is a 1:1 ratio of 1/2"
(12.7mm) minimum width formed by sawing, cleaning by sandblasting, blowing dry
with oil-free compressed air, and installation of CERA-ROD Heat-Resistant Backer
Rod. Joint interfaces must be dry and free of dust. Fill sealant flush with the
pavement surface and strike off clean.
MAINTENANCE SEALING - Old joint sealing material must be routed out of the joint
to a depth of 1 to 1-1/2" (25.4 to 38.1mm). Interfaces must be cleaned by
sawing, sandblasting or mechanical abrasion. CERA-ROD Heat-Resistant Backer Rod
should be installed to form a 1:1 ratio reservoir. In no case should the joint
width to depth exceed a 1:1 ratio.
The sealant is packaged in an easy-to-use poly bag inside a 5 gallon (18.93
liter) pail. Both the sealant and bag are to be placed in the melter for
Limitations and Storage
Do not exceed the safe heating temperature of 280ºF (138ºC) or
polymer degradation and gelation may occur. SEALTIGHT POLY-JET 3406 cannot be
re-melted and should not be left in the melter after heating. The kettle should
be flushed completely clean at the end of the sealing run. SEALTIGHT POLY-JET
3406 is not compatible with asphalt and cannot be used in conjunction with
asphaltic concrete pavement or asphalt-impregnated expansion joint fillers.
SEALTIGHT POLY-JET 3406 is not intended to be jet-blast resistant except when
aircraft are moving at minimum moderate speeds.
Do not store the sealant in direct sunlight. Storage temperature should not
exceed 100ºF (38ºC).
Direct contact with this product should be avoided. The use of
safety goggles/glasses, chemical-resistant gloves and protective clothing is
recommended. Breathing of fumes/vapors should also be avoided. Use of a NlOSH-approved
vapor/mist respirator is recommended. Refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for
complete health and safety information.
