Surface preparation

Surfaces must be clean dry and free from dust and grease. Non-porous surfaces such as aluminium, glass and metal should be cleaned using a suitable solvent for the substrate.

Mixing

None.

Coverage

Depends on joint size, but should do approximately 7.7 m per 280 ml cartridge on a 6 mm x 6 mm joint.

Application

The use of abe® dura.® cord is recommended as a back-up material. Areas adjacent to the joints should be masked with 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 little liquid soap and water to ensure good contact between the sealant and substrate.
