Understanding How Self Leveling Caulk Works
A self-leveling caulk or sealant is a single component made with a premium-grade polyurethane sealant. It also has an accelerated curing capacity and can be used to seal horizontal expansion joints in cementitious slabs and concrete. You won’t need any tooling to use this type of product property.
The right self-leveling caulk will dry quickly if the weather is between 50- and 70-degrees Fahrenheit. It can skin over in just five minutes and become waterproof in just a few hours. Most self-leveling caulk will be about 80% cured after 48 hours but may take up to 30 days to become 100% cured.
How it Works
Self-leveling caulk fills in the horizontal joint and spreads out after application. It will flatten inside the joint and provide a better seal, while also keeping other things out of the space between the concrete. Often, it’s used to seal gaps, cracks, and joints in your concrete slab.
Using self-leveling caulk gives you an easy to clean option that helps to protect your concrete. It offers an excellent option to fill in any gaps or cracks, if you’re trying to maintain your concrete surface, as well.
