- Remove tape after silicone application before the sealant skins.
- Cut the tip off the cartridge and screw on the nozzle.
- Cut the tip of the nozzle at an angle to achieve the desired bead size.
- Apply with a caulking gun in a continuous bead to the prepared joint.
- Remove unwanted silicone immediately.
- Smooth down after application within 3-5 min before skin formation occurs, by using a flat or rounded tool.
- Sealant dries to touch in 1 hour and reaches full cure after approximately 24 hours.

To maximize the shelf life of an opened silicone cartridge, we recommend that the nozzle be removed and a piece of plastic placed over the cartridge tip after which the nozzle must be screwed back on. A large screw inserted into the nozzle tip also helps to extend the life. Store in a cool environment.
