Surface Preparation
All surfaces must be clean, dry and dust free. Cut away as much as possible of the silicone sealant using a sharp knife. Protect surrounding areas with impervious masking tape

Application
Cut the tip of the cartridge taking care not to damage the thread. Apply nozzle and cut at an angle of 45 degrees with an opening slightly larger than the gap to be sealed. Apply using a standard sealant gun. Best results will be obtained by keeping an even pressure on the trigger and keeping the gun at a constant angle to the surface being sealed.

Removing Silicone sealants from baths/showers etc:

  • Spread the bead over the entire area which requires treatment (use masking tape to protect surrounding areas) A coating of at least twice the thickness of the underlying silicone should be applied. The dwell time required may be varied between 2 hours to 4 hours depending on primarily on the characteristics of the underlying silicone and the substrate from which it is to be debonded.
  • Repeat application if necessary.
  • Wash off with water after 4 hours max.
