SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
A.
The Work shall consist of furnishing and installing waterproof expansion joints in accordance with the details shown on the plans and the requirements of the specifications. Standard preformed sealant shall be silicone pre-coated, preformed, pre-compressed, self-expanding, sealant system.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Sealtite transitions are made to meet specific job configurations where a field configured transition is impractical. Sealtite custom transitions can be made from full length sticks with a transition at the end to reduce the need for most transition joins in the horizontal or vertical plane. Sealtite custom factory transitions are available for the entire Sealtite product line.
 
1.
Factory fabricated project specific preformed sealant transitions shall be used to provide sealant continuity and minimize field splices.
