CS-1900 Hydrophilic Elastomeric Sealant

CS-1900 is a single component, swellable waterstop designed for use in a multitude of concrete applications such as penetrations, compression joints for precast segments and construction/cold joints. CS-1900’s exceptional resistance to hydrostatic pressures over 60 psi makes it the product of choice for deep construction applications such as tunnels and dams. Enhancing its versatility, CS-1900 may be used as an adhesive for ConSeal’s preformed hydrophilic waterstops and seals.

Directions for Use 

Surface Preparation:  The concrete must be clean and free from dust, dirt, grease and debris before application of CS-1900.  Inspect surface for soundness.  When surface is clean, sound and dry proceed with using the CS-1900.  
Note:  Make sure the surface is free from frost prior to application.
DO NOT USE petroleum solvents such as Mineral Spirits or Xylene for surface preparation.
Priming:  For applications with continuous water immersion ConSeal recommends using a surface primer.  ConSeal CS-80 is specifically designed for ConSeal’s elastomeric sealants.  
Application:  Maintain CS-1900 at room temperature before applying to ensure easy application.  CS-1900 may be factory or field applied to seal various construction components.  Work CS-1900 into rough surfaces to optimize surface contact.  If using to fill cracks, avoid air entrapment fop filling void with continuous bead of CS-1900.  
Packaging and Storage: Available in 10.1-fl. oz. cartridge (298mL), 20.2-fl. oz. sausages (600mL), 28.5-fl. oz. cartridges (842mL) and 5-gallon pails.  
12-month shelf life from manufacture date when stored in a cool, dry area. Elevated temperatures >100° F may reduce shelf life.
