When discussing field adhesion testing, the best place to start is at the beginning, and one of the most commonly asked questions is, what exactly is a field adhesion test? The answer is quite simply, a quick and easy procedure that is conducted out in the field where a technician assesses the adhesion performance of a sealant installed. When the test is performed, the technician is subjectively looking for specific performance criteria, but ultimately the overall performance of the sealant in the joint is being assessed. Stayed tuned for next week, we will be discussing the two types of adhesion testing methods.

Our DynaTrol® II was designed as a general purpose non-sag elastomeric sealant that creates a firm bond and watertight seal between materials of similar or dissimilar surface textures, porosities, or expansion coefficients. Our Urexpan® NR-200 is a self-leveling elastomeric sealant that is very abrasion resistant and highly extendible to withstand long-term abuse and dynamic movement. These two products were selected to re-caulk the sealant of the exposed upper levels on two garages at West Chester University. Our NR-200 was used on all flat surfaces because it is self-leveling, and the DynaTrol was used on all slopes due to its non-sag capabilities. Our Pecora-Deck 800 deck coating was also used to cover the 80,000 sq. foot combined upper levels of the garages. For more information on polyurethane and deck coating products, contact our Technical Services department at techservices@pecora.com or 800-523-6688.
