Surface preparation:

The surfaces to be must be clean and free from dust, grease and other conta­minants. New concrete or mortar should be allowed adequate time to dry and mature. May be applied to wet surfaces.

Application:

For lap joints, apply sufficient sealant to bridge the gap and press surfaces together while still tacky leaving a minimum 2mm sealant film.

Cut the tip of the cartridge taking care not to damage the thread. Apply nozzle and cut cleanly at an angle of 45degrees, 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 gun trigger and keeping the gun at a constant angle to the surface being sealed. To ensure a proper bond, always smooth the sealant down using a spatula or piece of wood wetted with linseed oil or white spirits. An improved joint appearance can be achieved by placing masking tape to both sides of the joint, removing within 5minutes of application.

When using as an adhesive, press surfaces together, pull apart and wait for approx. 10minutes until sealant becomes tacky, then press together and apply even pressure.

Clean tools in turps or white spirits.
