that surfaces are not marred or gouged, and that corners are true,
sharp, and unbroken.
2.
Do not permit steel spreaders, form ties, or other metal to project
from, or be visible on, any concrete surface except where so shown
on the Drawings.

B.

Installation Tool:
1.
For installation of backup material, provide a blunt-surfaced tool of
wood or plastic, having shoulders designed to ride on the adjacent
finished surface and a protrusion of the required dimensions to assure
uniform depth of backup material below the sealant.

Do not, under any circumstance, use a screwdriver or similar tool for
this purpose.
3.
Using the approved tool, smoothly and uniformly place the backup
material to the depth indicated on the Drawings or otherwise required,
compressing the backup material 25% to 50% and securing a positive
fit.

INSTALLATION OF SEALANTS

Prior to start of installation in each joint, verify the joint type according to
details on the Drawings, or as otherwise directed by the Architect, and verify
that the required proportion of width of joint to depth of joint has been
secured.

B.

Equipment:

manually-operated hand gun, or by other appropriate means.
2.
Use guns with nozzle of proper size, and providing sufficient pressure
to completely fill the joints as designed.
