          B.Joint Backing: Select joint backing materials recommended by sealant manufacturer as compatible with sealant and adjacent materials. Install backing material at depth required to produce profile of joint sealant allowing optimal sealant movement.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Size joints to allow for the recommended width/depth ratio of the sealed joint based on anticipated joint movement and construction tolerances. Design joint to 4 times anticipated movement to accommodate construction tolerances and expected movement based on coefficient of thermal expansion.
          1.Install joint backing to maintain the following joint ratios:
          a.Joints up to 1/2 inch (13 mm) wide: 1:1 width to depth ratio.
          b.Joints greater than 1/2 inch (13 mm) wide: 2:1 width to depth ratio; maximum 1/2 inch (13 mm) joint depth.
          2.Install bond breaker tape over substrates when sealant backings are not used.
 
          C.Masking: Mask adjacent surfaces to prevent staining or damage by contact with sealant or primer.
 
          D.Joint Priming: Prime joint substrates when recommended by sealant manufacturer or when indicated by preconstruction testing or experience. Apply recommended primer using sealant manufacturer's recommended application techniques.
 
          E.Liquid Sealant Application: Install sealants using methods recommended by sealant manufacturer, in depths recommended for application. Apply in continuous operation from bottom to top of joint vertically and horizontally in a single direction. Apply using adequate pressure to fill and seal joint width.
          1.Tool sealants immediately with appropriately shaped tool to force sealants against joint backing and joint substrates, eliminating voids and ensuring full contact.
          2.Install sealant free of air pockets, foreign embedded matter, ridges, and sags.
          3.Tool exposed joint surface concave using tooling agents approved by sealant manufacturer for application.
 
          F.Remove excess sealant using materials and methods approved by sealant manufacturer that will not damage joint substrate materials.
          1.Remove masking tape after tooling joint without disturbing seal.
          2.Remove excess sealant from surfaces while still uncured.
