Application
Maintain surface temperature between 40ºF and 90ºF (4ºC and 32ºC) during installation and for 24 hours thereafter. For expansion joints or perimeter sealing, the ratio of the joint width to sealant depth should be roughly 2:1. Apply to clean, dry surfaces free from dirt, grease, and existing sealant. For deep joints first install polyurethane or plyethylene foam backer rod. For shallow joints use polyethylene tape. Metal, glass and plastic surfaces should be cleaned by mechanical or solvent procedures. Simple detergent or soap and water treatments are not acceptable. In all cases where utilized, solvents should be wiped on and off with clean, oil and lint free cloths. Cut nozzle at angle to desired bead size. Use masking tape on both sides of joint to allow for easy clean up. Fill joint completely and tool to desired thickness immediately before a skin forms. Remove masking tape immediately after tooling and wipe any sealant off the face of the veneer. Skins over within 10 minutes. When sealing limestone or other porous stone, conduct small test area to verify non-staining as variations exist.

Clean Up
Clean-up or remove from unintended areas before sealant skins over. Wipe hands with dry cloth to remove sealant. Wash with soap and water.

Curing
Protect from traffic or water exposure for 24 hours. Swimming pool applications or submerged applications – use polyethylene backer rod or tape and allow 14 days to cure before filling pool. Fully cured sealant is non-hazardous.
