PART 3 EXECUTION
 
3.1
EXAMINATION
A.
Verify that field measurements and blockout dimensions are as shown on shop drawings prior to releasing materials for fabrication by the manufacturer.
B.
Do not begin installation until substrates have been properly prepared.
C.
If substrate preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect of unsatisfactory preparation before proceeding.
3.2
PREPARATION
A.
Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
B.
Solidly form the blockout and joint opening, and allow concrete to properly cure. Corners must be sharp or rounded in accordance with the manufacturer's and project's requirements. Repair edges or areas with a concrete repair material approved by the Manufacturer and Architect.
C.
Blockouts requiring the use of patching compounds must be cured in accordance with the patching compound manufacturer's recommendations and instructions prior to placement of Elastomeric Concrete. Coordinate with other trades if patching is the responsibility of others.
D.
Clean dirt, debris, and other contaminants from the blockout and the joint opening.
E.
Sandblast the blockout to expose aggregate to remove contaminants and prepare the surfaces for the installation of the Elastomeric Concrete Header material.
F.
Mask areas adjacent to the joint with tape to assure neat, clean joint lines. Remove the tape prior to the curing process.
3.3
INSTALLATION
A.
Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions. Handle, mix or otherwise prepare all components in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations and instructions.
B.
Do not install Elastomeric Concrete when ambient temperature is below 40 degrees F.
C.
Immediately prior to installation, blow out the blockout and joint interfaces using compressed air.
D.
Prior to installation, remove packaging from elastomeric products and allow them to relax.
E.
Clean up the work area after installation of the system is completed.
F.
Fabricate horizontal transitions and butt splices such as 90 degree corners, tees and crosses as recommended by the manufacturer. Extend horizontal transitions a minimum of 24 inches (610 mm) in each direction from the splice.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if no floor to wall conditions exist.
 
G.
Fabricate Wall Mount Plate of preformed 10 foot (3048 mm) 26 gauge stainless steel profiles cut to length on the jobsite, and miter cut where directional changes occur or are otherwise required.
3.4
PROTECTION
A.
Protect the completed Expansion Control system work from damage during construction.
B.
Do not allow vehicular traffic without the specific written permission of the Architect.
C.
Prior to project closeout, clean exposed surfaces with a suitable cleaner (toluene or xylene) that will not harm the finish.
