Tips and Tricks:
For joints above 12mm wide, a width to depth ratio of 2:1 should be used, up to a maximum depth of 12mm. In situations where fillet joints are needed, a minimum of 6mm sealant bite to each substrate is recommended. Bond beaker tape or a backer rod should be used as back-up material to provide backpressure and avoid three-sided adhesion that limits sealant movement capability.
To keep your Pattex All Purpose Silicone Sealant fresh for longer, simply store in a cool dry environment.
Step by step
1. Surfaces must be clean, dry and free from grease and dust. Non-porous surfaces, such as aluminum, glass etc., should be cleaned with a suitable solvent.
2. After suitable joint preparation and masking, the sealant is gunned into place and tooled within 5 to 10 minutes, using a Pattex Sealant Profiler Tool. Masking tape is then removed immediately. Uncured material can be removed by using a solvent. Cured material may be removed by abrasion or other mechanical means.
3. The sealant joint width should be designed to accommodate the movement capability of the sealant. In general, the minimum joint width should be 6mm. For joints between 6-12mm wide, a seal depth of 6mm is recommended.
