Typical uses:

MS Deck Caulking H is specific for waterproof sealing of seams in teak decks of shipbuilding.


Method of use:

Adhesion and surface preparation: the surfaces must be dry, clean and degreased. Apply an even coat of Primer LM/BV to
wood. In joints subjected to movement it is suggested, after application of Primer, to apply a release tape in the bottom of
the joints in order to exploit the elastic properties of the sealant.
Application of the sealant and finishing of the deck: the sealant can be extruded by using a hand operated gun or an air one
taking care of the complete filling of the inner parts of the joints and overfilling the outer one.
It is recommended to work at a temperature over than 5°C and to apply the sealant when the primer is fully dried.
If the sealant is not smoothed by spatula immediately after the application, it is recommended to cut the excess of hardened
product with a blade before sanding, in order to prevent damages from the action of the sandpaper to the adhesion.
The optimum conditions for sanding are generally achieved after one week. The sanding should be done always lengthwise to
the joints, using a band or a lapping machine with grit 80 (Heavy sanding ) and 120 (finishing touch) sandpaper
Any painting of the wood should be done some weeks after the application of the sealant, making previous test to check
possible effects on adhesion.

PRODUCTS” available on request.
Chemical resistance: MS Deck Caulking H shows a good resistance to water and to marine environment. A regular washing
with water, as well daily in hot climates, keeps the wood at the right level of moisture and normally is sufficient for a good
maintenance of the deck. The use of oily products is not recommended, any how it remains to be seen previously on small
surfaces. In case of an occasional need of the use of cleansers, is recommended to utilize only liquid soaps for domestic use,
diluted with water and rinsed a long time. Avoid aggressive chemical cleansers, whiteners, bleachs, caustic soda and the use
of cleaning machines. It bears contact with fuels occasionally and for short period.
