What is the application?

All kinds of deck fittings and hardware need to be securely fixed and totally watertight. Some of these fittings can be subject to very high forces, such as tensile, torsion and shear tresses. Poorly sealed joints can suffer serious damage such as metal corrosion, osmosis and water leaks which can cause damage to interior furnishings and fittings. Deck fittings such as chain plates, winches and guide rollers must absorb very high dynamic stresses.

Which products do you use in this application?

These fittings can be effectively bedded and sealed with only Sikaflex®-291i or if the joint remains visible and is exposed to weathering, the use of Sikaflex®-295 UV or Sikaflex®-591 is recommended.
