Sikaflex 1A is a premium-grade, high-performance, moisture-cured, aingle component, polyurethane-based, non-sag elastomeric professional grade sealant.
This one part sealant is highly elastic, curing to a durable, flexible consistency with high cut and tear resistance. It's excellent adhesive properties let 1A bond to most construction materials without priming. A strong track record of resisting aging and weathering in demanding climates, resistance to fuel (including jet fuel) permeation, and compatibility with water, oil, and rubber based paints make this odorless, non staining adhesive a popular choice in construction applications.
Sikaflex 1A meets Federal specification TT-S-00230C, Type II, Class A as well as ASTM C-920, Type S, Grade NS, Class 25, use T, NT, O, M, G, I; Canadian standard CAN/CGSB 19.13-M87.

Sikaflex 1A is designed for joints where maximum depth of sealant will not exceed 1/2 inch. This makes it ideal for for small joints and fillets, windows, door frames, reglets, flashing, common roofing detail applications, and many construction adhesive applications.
It's suitable for vertical and horizontal joints; readily placeable at 40F.
Use as an elastic adhesive between materials with dissimilar coefficients of expansion. It is also suitable for submerged conditions, such as canal and reservoir joints.
Is this a good product to use on copper roofing and flashings, or is there a better SILICONE (not polyurethane) product
Need to Know
Yes, Sik 1A will work well.
is this product sold by the case? if so how much per case. what is the linear footage each tube covers?
They are sold by the tube 24 per case. $7.99/tube.A 1/4" x 1/4" bead will do 24 lin ft.
can the sikaflex 1A be purchased in 1 gallon containers?
I am not sure, I use the caulking gun size. but boy does this stuff work great.
That's a question which should be answered by the manufacturer.
is silkafle 1 a self leveling?
No it is not self leveling. It gets applied with a caulk gun just like caulk or silicone.
No, I don't know of a sealant caulking that is? I does go on smooth if you keep an even pace.
It is not self leveling. It is similar to caulk. It is a type of caulk.
No. Not really. But it is great stuff.
can this product good to install ceramic tile inside elevator ?
Best to contact the manufacturer for such advise.
No. This is not a construction adhesive, its a sealant.
Long term viability will depend on flexibility of floor. If floor flexes, I would not use ceramic tile. Adhesive will hold, but you may have cracks in tile.
Can sikaflex 1a be used in a potable fiberglass water tank to be used in place off the gaskets?
Yes, NSF Certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for potable water contact
yes if you wait 20 minutes before you fasten it down after after sika is applied.
Can this be used to glue marine grade plywood to a concrete heated floor?
I have no idea. It did work very well for my application on aluminum
I would not be able to answer this question as I used this as a sealant for my house. Which worked well for a year and needed to be redone.
I have used Sikaflex to seal a concrete basement floor to the concrete wall in order to prevent the entrance of radon gas. I have also used Sikaflex to attach particle board to a door in order to soundproof the door. Sikaflex is very sticky glue. It should work for your application. However, the heated concrete question should be posed to the manufacturer. Hope this helps.
what is the yield?
It depends on the size of the bead. The information on the tube says that a 1/2 x 1/4 inch bead yields 12.2 linear feet.
It depends on the height and width of the bead you put down. Go to the item on our web page and click on Caulking and Marine Sealant Coverage Chart under How To section
do you have to tool this in a horizontal application ?
Sikaflex will stick to nearly anything. It is flexible when cured. You could use a notched trowel to spread it.
Can I paint over sikaflex?
Never tried it.
I have not painted over sikaflex. Don't know if the paint will stick to it or not.
Sika don't keep over flowing when I stand it up
I used Sika self leveing on several expansoin joints and love it. The reason I'm really posting is because of the way I discoved the best way to set it aside if your going to be more then a few seconds. Maybe you already know this and I'm just finding out, but when i need to set the Sika aside for a few minutes or more, (Don't know how long you can do this, at lease 5mins that I know of) I release the preasure, stand it up in a bucket. it doesn't keep coming out oppose to laying it on it's side. It also saves money!
a bargain and appropriate for marine app
I used Sikaflex 1A to fill and seal 1/8" gaps between mahogany deck planks. A respected local Chris Craft restorer recommended it based on years of successful experience. It works the same way as all single part Urethane caulks, so it's messy and requires careful masking and application. The good news it is apparently the same formula as the marine designated caulks but it costs [$] a cartridge instead of $20. It comes in black, dark mahogany and one or two other colors.
Adheres well on concrete
I used on concrete cracks in my garage and it worked well keeping ground water out.Also used to gap on cement steps to wooden kick plate and worked better than any other previous products I have used.
Wow for Sikaflex
I used this on a cabin to fill some cracks. It was easy to use and fills nice.Very durable. The snow pack at the cabin can be 240 inches.
You should be selling a ton of this stuff in very wet Seattle. Every seam and joint seems to be leaking due to unseasonal rain and runoff. My builder had to search to help me find the product. Not sure if anyone local carries it.
