Application

Surface Preparation

Ensure that surfaces to be sealed are clean, dry, sound and free from frost. Clean all joints of dust, dirt, old sealants and other contaminants which could impair adhesion. Non-porous surfaces should be cleaned and degreased by wiping with a suitable solvent such as DOWSIL™ R-40 Universal Cleaner on an oil and lint-free cloth before application of sealant. Porous substrates should be mechanically cleaned using a steel brush, sanding disk or any similar means.

Application Instructions

Apply sealant to the desired area using a sealant gun. Once finished, the joint should be tooled within 5 minutes of application to ensure good adhesion. For an extensive list of application methods, please consult the Technical Data Sheet.

Clean up

Excess sealant may be cleaned off tools and non-porous surfaces whilst in an uncured state using DOWSIL™ R-40 Universal Cleaner. If sealant is misapplied to porous substrates, it should be left until it is just cured and then removed by peeling, cutting or other mechanical means. Care should be taken not to damage plastic or coated surfaces.
