Sikasil® WS-605 S can be used for weatherproofing and sealing applications where durability under severe conditions is required. It is particularly suited as a weather seal for structural glazing, curtain walling and windows. This product is suitable for experienced professional users only. Tests with actual substrates and conditions have to be performed ensuring adhesion, non-staining and material compatibility.

Sikasil® WS-605 S cures by reaction with atmospheric moisture. At low temperatures the water content of the air is generally lower and the curing reaction proceeds some-what slower (see diagram 1).
The curing speed of the reaction depends mainly on the relative humidity and temperature. Material temperature above 50 °C could lead to bubble formation and has to be avoided.

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from grease, oil and dust. Surface treatment depends on the specific nature of the substrates and is crucial for a long lasting bond.
The optimum temperature for substrate and sealant is between 15 °C and 25 °C.
Sikasil® WS-605 S can be processed with hand, pneumatic or electric driven piston guns as well as pump equipment. For advice on selecting and setting up a suitable pump system, contact the System Engineering Department of Sika Industry.
Joints must be properly dimensioned.
For optimum performance the joint width needs to be designed according to the movement capability of the sealant based on the actual expected movement. The minimum joint depth is 6 mm and a width / depth ratio of minimum 2 : 1 and maximum 4 : 1 must be respected. Joints deeper than 15 mm must be avoided.
For backfilling it is recommended to use closed cell, sealant compatible foam backer rods e.g. high resilience polyethylene foam rod. If joints are too shallow for backing material to be employed, we recommend using a polyethylene tape. This acts as a release film (bond breaker), allowing the joint to move and the silicone to stretch freely.
Tooling and finishing
Tooling and finishing must be carried out within the skin time of the sealant or adhesive.
When tooling freshly applied Sikasil® WS-605 S, press the adhesive to the joint flanks to get a good wetting of the bonding surface. No tooling agents must be used.
Uncured Sikasil® WS-605 S can be removed from tools and equipment with Sika Remover-208 or another suitable solvent. Once cured, the material can only be removed mechanically.
Hands and exposed skin have to be washed immediately using hand wipes such as Sika® Cleaner-350H cleaning towels or a suitable industrial hand cleaner and water. Do not use solvents on skin.
Sikasil® WS-605 S cannot be overpainted.
Most Sikasil® WS, SG, IG and WT, silicones manufactured by Sika are compatible with each other. For specific information regarding compatibility between various Sikasil® products contact the Technical Department of Sika Industry.
To exclude materials influencing Sikasil® WS-605 S, all materials such as gaskets, tapes, setting blocks, sealants, etc., in direct and indirect contact have to be approved by Sika in advance.
Where two or more different reactive sealants are used, allow the first to cure completely before applying the next. Sikasil® WS-605 S may only be used in combination with structural glazing applications after a detailed examination of the corresponding project details.
Do not use Sikasil® WS-605 S on PMMA and PC elements as it may cause environmental stress cracking (crazing).
