Where applicable, areas adjacent to the joints should be masked with masking tape to prevent contamination and to ensure a neat sealant line. The masking tape should be removed immediately after tooling.

Cut the tip of nozzle at the angle required. Apply abe® silicone from a caulking gun using sufficient pressure to ensure adequate contact with sides of joint. The surface of the joint may be smoothed over with a tooling spatula that has been sprayed with a mild solution of liquid soap and water to ensure good contact between the sealant and substrate.


Tools should be cleaned immediately after use and before material has set with abe® super brush cleaner followed by washing with soap and water.

Protection on Completion

abe® silicone needs no protection on completion as it is UV resistant. abe® silicone must not be overcoated.
