Applied with a brush or spayed onto a pipe joint, it quickly changes to a tacky state that allows a gasket to be permanently bonded to the concrete.

With application rates of approximately 250 square feet (23.2 sq. meters) per gallon, #1-326 Adhesive is an economical way to keep gaskets in place on pipe. It can also be used for priming concrete surfaces for application of butyl wraps or sealants, and for bonding closed cell joint filler in place.

Features and Benefits

  • Specifically formulated to bond rubber to concrete.
  • Aggressive hold on all types of rubber.
  • Use as an adhesive for gluing rubber gaskets to concrete pipe and manholes with plain tongue and groove joints.
  • Use as an adhesive/primer for bonding butyl joint wraps to concrete structures.
  • Use as an adhesive/primer for bonding preformed butyl sealants to difficult joints, like box culverts.

For profile gaskets with confined groove joints:

  1. Before installing the gasket to the concrete pipe, clean the spigot or tongue end of pipe with a cloth or brush so that no foreign material remains.
  2. Slip gasket onto pipe and into the groove(s) provided.
  3. After gasket is in place completely around circumference of pipe, roll gasket out of joint 180° in the direction of the bell end of the pipe.
  4. Apply Press-Seal Gasket Adhesive by means of brush or spray to both rubber gasket and dry concrete pipe. When the adhesive be the comes tacky to touch, but does not adhere to fingers (usually 1 min. to 10 min., depending on the temperature) roll rubber gasket back into grooves and press into place.

For profile gaskets on mortar (straight tongue & groove) joints:

  1. Before installing the gasket to concrete pipe, clean spigot or tongue end of pipe with cloth or brush so that no foreign material remains.
  2. Apply adhesive liberally to concrete pipe spigot area only, then place rubber gasket on spigot and press into place.
  • DO NOT ATTEMPT TO APPLY ADHESIVE TO WET PIPE.
  • KEEP COVER TIGHTLY CLOSED WHEN NOT IN USE.
  • STORE IN DRY COOL PLACE.
