Tremco Spectrem 4-TS is a multi-component, neutral-cure, low-modulus silicone sealant that is non-staining and has low polar attraction to dirt. Spectrem 4- TS offers color flexibility with the ability to tint the material while on the job site results in a quick turn around. Basic uses for Spectrem 4-TS; It is formulated for use in dynamically moving building joints with +/- 50% movement. Typical applications for Spectrem 4-TS include EIFS, expansion and control joints, tilt-up panel joints, precast concrete panel joints, and perimeter caulking (windows, doors, panels). Tremco Universal Color Paks are available in 70 standard colors and no minimum purchase quantity afford color flexibility for seamless façade appearance. Tremco Spectrem 4-TS's low polar attraction to dirt makes buildings easier to clean and maintain and its low-modulus and low Shore A hardness reduces chance of EIFS substrate failures when compared to applications with medium-modulus. Tremco Spectrem 4-TS provides primerless adhesion to most construction materials, extended tooling time and workability in high temperatures, its ease of use reduces risk of application failure and has low-VOC and zero-solvent content which satisfies the LEED Indoor Environmental Criteria.Greenguard Gold certification ensures safety for use in the most sensitive indoor environments including hospitals and schools. Spectrem 4 TS cannot be applied over damp or contaminated surfaces, is not intended for continuous water immersion and needs to be applied in an area with adequate ventilation.
Mix Spectrem 4-TS in accordance with directions on the product container label. Mixing should continue until the desired uniform color is reached. Apply with conventional caulking equipment, filling the joint completely and tool.
Spectrem 4-TS may be used in any vertical or horizontal joint design in accordance with accepted architectural/engineering practice. Joint width should be 4-times anticipated movement, but not less than 1/4" (6 mm) wide.
Closed-cell polyethylene backer rods are preferred as joint backing to control depth of sealant bead. Where depth of joint will prevent use of joint backing, an adhesive-backed polyethylene tape should be installed to prevent three sided adhesion. Joint backing must be dry at time of sealant application.
