PACKAGING INFORMATION CURE MECHANISM Sikaflex®-290 DC PRO cures by reaction with atmospheric moisture. At low temperatures the water content of the air is generally lower and the curing reaction proceeds somewhat slower (see diagram 1). CHEMICAL RESISTANCE Sikaflex®-290 DC PRO offers effective longterm resistance to fresh water, seawater and mild aqueous cleaning agents. The sealant is not resistant to solvents, acids, caustic solutions and chlorine containing cleaners. A brief contact with fuels or lubricants has no significant effect on the durability of the sealant. METHOD OF APPLICATION...
