About This Product
Tremco Vulkem 116 Textured Polyurethane Sealant is a single-component, moisture-curing, gun-grade polyurethane caulk. Vulkem 116 is an excellent general-purpose sealant designed for use on poured or precast concrete, masonry work, window perimeters, door perimeters, and similar types of construction joints. Vulkem 116 is approved for exterior use only. Vulkem 116 has a 30-year history of delivering superior primerless adhesion to porous substrates, which makes it the choice for sealing expansion joints in commercial construction applications.
Features and Benefits
- Suitable for certain water immersion applications
- Rated for +/-25% movement capability
- Cure can be accelerated with the addition of the Vulkem Catalyst 45/116
- Durable, flexible, and offers excellent performance in dynamic joints
- 30-year history of delivering superior primerless adhesion to porous substrates, which makes it the choice for sealing expansion joints in commercial construction applications
- Vulkem 116 is easy to apply with conventional caulking equipment. Ensure that the backer rod is friction-fitted properly and any primers have been applied.
- Fill the joint completely with a proper width-to-depth ratio, and then tool to ensure intimate contact of sealant with joint walls.
- Dry tooling is always preferred, although xylene can be used in limited amounts to slick the spatula if needed.
- For a cleaner finish, mask the sides of the joint with tape prior to filling.

Vulkem 116 generally cures at a rate of 1/16" (2 mm) per day at 75 °F (24°C) and 50% RH. It will skin in 5 hr and be tack free in 30 hr. The cure time will increase as temperatures and/or humidity decrease. A good rule of thumb is one additional day for every 10 °F decrease in temperature.
