VM Caulking 190 Testimonial…

‘ We needed a caulk to seal our fiberglass composite pool walls to the poured concrete floors, while at the same time, something able to withstand the heat generated by our EcoFinish aquabright application.   

We tried many different adhesive caulks with no real success. After consulting with others that had traveled down this same path, I was told to give Canada Pool Coating a call. We are very happy to say that ordering your “VM 190 Caulking” was a great decision. It had great adhesion to both the fiberglass composite wall and the poured concrete floor. It was easy to work with and it withstood the high heat of the EcoFinish coating process.  

We could not be more pleased with the product and your customer service has been excellent. ‘

Thank you so much!
Sincerely,                                                                                                                                                 Jerod J Heintz

VM products instruction guidelines:

 Repair Work around Skimmers, drains, water jets and light fixtures beforehand:

Utilize the application guidelines below.

 For Concrete Surfaces:

1.  Prepare the concrete surface as per thermoplastic spray instructions by acid washing , sandblasting, power washing if removal of old surface is required.

2..    Epoxy the walls and the floor as per thermoplastic spray  instructions

3..    Flock coat the pool with thermoplastic spray

4..    Prepare all of the joints and gaps with VM Primer larger than the areas to be caulked.

5..    Caulk areas to be filled with VM 190. Smooth off with a trowel or a wet finger.

6.    Spray another layer of thermoplastic spray over the caulking before it skins over. This will allow the thermoplastic spray to penetrate into the caulking.        Note: If the caulking skins over:  simply wipe another layer of VM Primer onto it before you re-spray thermoplastic spray again. 

7.    Inspect all of the joints after your final application of thermoplastic spray.     If you notice any voids repeat step 4. and 5.

8.    Fill pool over caulked areas after 24 hours only.  

Special Note: the primer acts as the bonding agent between all surfaces. Shake the primer well Before use.
