Can it be used between/with pressure treated sill plate and concrete ?

Asked by: jon
If a pressure treated sill plate falls under the following statement from Tremco, I would say yes. If it’s metal you may have to use a primer first – see last section. FEATURES AND BENEFITS: Vulkem 116 has a 30-year history of delivering superior primerless adhesion to porous substrates, which makes it the choice for sealing expansion joints in commercial construction applications. Vulkem 116 is also suitable for certain water immersion applications and is rated for 25% movement capability. The cure of the sealant can be accelerated with the addition of the Vulkem Catalyst 45/116. Vulkem 116 is an excellent general-purpose sealant designed for use on poured and precast concrete, masonry work, window and door perimeters, and similar types of construction joints. Vulkem 116 is approved for exterior use only. PRIMING: Where deemed necessary, use Vulkem Primer #171 for porous substrates and TREMprime Non-Porous Primer for metals and plastics. Vulkem 116 typically adheres to common construction substrates without primers; however, Tremco always recommends that mock-up or field adhesion test be performed on the actual materials being used on the job to verify the need for a primer. The field adhesion test can be found in appendix X1 of ASTM C 1193, Standard Guide for Use of Joint Sealants.

10.1-oz. Buff Vulkem 116 Polyurethane Sealant is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job I purchased this product on the recommendation of a wise old concrete contractor. I was getting a trickle of water in my basement whenever it rained. The contractor came out and looked at the patio. He said it appeared to have settled and was directing water back to my house. He suggested I try Polyurethane Sealant as he remembered road crews using it on bridges. I applied a bead between the house and the patio three weeks ago and have had no water what so ever since and we have had numerous heavy rains. Hopefully my problem is solved. $6.15 vs $6000. Good deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This worked perfectly. The Buff color worked perfectly and matched the cool decking very well. I used this product to seal two cracks in our pool. Worked like magic. This is the product to use for pool cracks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stops leaks My handyman applied Vulkem around the area where my septic pipe goes out the basement wall to stop water from leaking in during heavy rains. It lasted years before the seal broke in a horrific downpour. I actually haven't used this container yet to re-patch but this is a super sealant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sealant I have found This is the only sealant that i know will last 20 or more years. It will adhere to wood,concrete, and just about anything. Be aware it takes about a week to really dry, and is best used outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to work with Product was great. Difficult cleanup on surfaces other than what you want it on. Check the product when it arrives. 2 of 12 tubes were damaged by what looked to be due to the manner in which they were packed (thrown loosely into a box with no packing). Not a good thing to see when you are deep into a project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent outdoor sealant! This sealant works great and is the right choice for outdoor application. I re-sealed the 27 year old crumbling sealant that was between the siding and the chimney. After scraping the old sealant away this stuff created a perfect bond between the brick and the siding.
