Tremco Vulkem 116 One-Part, High-Performance Polyurethane Sealant One-Part Grainy Textured Finish Primerless Adhesion on Most Common Construction Surfaces Durable and Flexible Seal Features and Benefits: Tremco Vulkem 116 has demonstrated superior primerless adhesion to porous substrates for 30 years, and is the choice for sealing expansion joints in commercial construction applications. It can be used exterior or interior with adequate ventilation. Vulkem 116 is also suitable for certain water immersion applications. Tremco Vulkem 116 is also rated for 25% movement capability. Tremco Vulkem® 116 Sealant is a one-part moisture curing, gun grade polyurethane sealant. Vulkem® 116 is durable, flexible, and offers excellent performance in moving joints. No primer is required on most construction materials, and it applies with conventional caulking guns. It is an excellent general purpose sealant designed for use in precast, masonry, glazing, window frame perimeters and similar types of construction joints. Suitable for continual immersion in water with the appropriate primer. Designed for exterior and interior use. The light grainy texture has proven very popular for matching textured substrates like stucco and masonry, and for smooth metal storefront joints the light texture blends and hides tooling marks and the wavy effect that is inevitable when tooling sealants.

Used it to seal joints between panels on a metal shed. Not the cheap, flimsy kind of shed--a heavy duty shed. Metal is about like the metal used on school lockers and the panels have flange edges that butt up against each other. This stuff not only gave me a perfect color match, it gives a seal that I have a high level of confidence in. Since applying, we have had some torrential rains and hot sun and it has performed perfectly. I had to reapply some because I did a poor job on one area that was hard to reach. The sealant that I removed was flexible so I can see why it seals so well--it contracts and expands with the edges it is sealing.
Wear gloves when applying. If this stuff dries on your hands it takes a fair amount of scrubbing to get it off. Will buy again for sure.
This stuff is great! Wow! Had a few leaks around windows alonf with some stucco cracks. No more leaks and it blends perfectly with my stucco....very paintable!
Good product. Very rubbery. Good where your might have expansion issues. It's has a slight amount of sand in it to help next to concrete, stucco etc....
