In general CRL EU33S Silicone may be used, also without primer, to seal assemblies of glass, glazed surfaces, porcelain coated metal, epoxy and polyester panels, polystyrene, uPVC, stainless steel, anodized aluminium and finished wood.
Basic Uses - CRL EU33S Silicone is especially designed for joining and sealing most non-porous building materials including a variety of structural materials: glass, aluminum, metal alloys, stainless steel, wood, and plastics. It has a wide operating temperature range of -80° to 400°F (-62° to 204°C), and can be applied at outdoor temperatures as low as -35° to 140°F (-37° to 60°C). 33S exhibits strong physical properties: 350 psi Tensile Strength; 120 psi Lap Shear at 1/8" (3 mm) thickness and Tear Strength of 25 ppi. It will seal curtainwall joints, steel and aluminum windows, and skylights. Indoor uses include bathtubs, showers, and sanitary installations (Mildew Resistant Clear, White, Translucent White, and Tan contain a fungicide for cured beads that are mildew resistant).
Limitations - It is not recommended for structural glazing or insulating glass glazing, concrete and stone expansion joints, horizontal decks, patios, driveway or terrace joints where abrasion is possible. Not recommended for use on concrete, marble, limestone, lead coated surfaces, submerged joints (swimming pools and aquariums), plazas, decks, pavements, etc. Not suitable for painting. Check cartridge label and Specification Data Sheet for additional limitations.
