Instructions for use
Ensure surfaces are clean and free from any oil, grease or loose paint. If required, lightly sand the area to remove any loose paint flakes, and use a warm soapy water to remove any oil or grease. Afterwards, make sure the area is completely dry before starting to apply the Sikaflex 522.
Bead, spread or spot the Sika 522 adhesive as required. Press any components into position. The adhesive thickness should be no less than 2mm. Remove any excess sealant and smooth any exposed Sikaflex 522 to a flat finish while still wet. Heavy components may need support or clamping for a few hours.
Bonds to all normal construction components. Will not bond to non-stick surfaces such as PTFE, Silicone, Polythene or Polypropylene. If in doubt, carry out a pre-test. Once opened, the cartridge should be used quickly as it is moisture
reactive and cannot be resealed effectively.
Why you should use Sikaflex 522 sealant & adhesive
Water can find its way through poorly sealed joints, seams and holes, including screw holes. This can cause damp, rot and
corrosion problems. The front and rear of campervans, caravans and motorhomes can be particularly vulnerable because of
wind pressure effects during travelling.
Non-setting mastics such as butyls can be squeezed out of joints or seams by movement or tightening down screws. Some are not resistant to acid rain and can break down after a few years.
