A building joint sealant, Colorseal-On-A-Reel (COR) is a cost-effective version of Sika Emseal’s industry-standard Seismic Colorseal precompressed primary seal shipped on a reel for rapid installation into small joints. It ensures watertightness in vertical or horizontal structural and abutment joints in virtually any substrate. Reel-packaging, in contrast to ‘stick’ packaging: reduces waste, lowers production costs, makes handling easier, and installation rapid. Colorseal-On-A-Reel is a tensionless solution to small joint sealing and is half the price of similarly sized ‘stick’ Colorseal. Its installed-cost makes COR a cost-effective alternate to ‘caulk and backer rod’. And COR not only seals out water, it seals out air, heat, cold, and sound as well.
Paintable Version Now Available For Wall Applications: COR is now available with a paintable coating of Sika® Hyflex® 150 LM STPE hybrid sealant in a standard, neutral “limestone” color ideal for accepting latex and acrylic paints and coatings. Note: in applications where joint movement occurs, unless paint or coating is flexible and can move with the COR, the paint may crack. All instructions of the coating manufacturer in regards to substrate preparation to achieve adhesion acceptable to the user must be followed).
Colorseal-On-A-Reel replaces traditional liquid sealant and backer rod in the typical “caulk and backer rod” configuration that relies for performance on the difficult-to-achieve ‘hour-glass’ shape. In doing so, COR eliminates the primary reason for sealant joint failure – tension – at the bondline and within the cured liquid sealant. COR installs rapidly and eliminates many of the myriad steps required to achieve a neat, functioning joint seal using liquid sealant and backer rod. No grinding, priming, backer rod insertion, masking, mixing, or tooling.
