How to use Silicone Sealants
a. Use a standard caulking gun to dispense the sealant. Tool immediately, within 5 minutes of application, with a spatula to spread the sealant against the back-up material and joint surfaces. Sealant will begin to skin on the exposed surface in about 10 minutes and cure will progress inward.
Note: The use of a caulking gun ensures even distribution for a professional finish.
TIP: Hold the sealant gun at an angle of 45° while pulling the gun
towards yourself. Find the right working speed to properly fill the necessary gaps.
b. For areas with deep surfaces: Ensure the sealant is in contact with both sides of joints and gaps. Use foam backer rods to establish good bonding at the sides and to control the depth of the sealant.
Wet your finger with soapy water to smoothen out the silicone sealant seam. The soap prevents the sealant from sticking to your finger. Remove any excess sealant from surface with knife or spatula. Depending on humidity & temperature, applied sealant is touch dry after approx. 30 minutes.
Note: Protect from water exposure for at least 4 hours after application.
