Ensure all surfaces are clean and free of old caulk, grease, dust, ice, snow, frost, surface water and other contaminants. While PL Heavy Duty is generally considered a non-priming sealant, special circumstances or substrates may require a primer. It is the user's responsibility to test substrate compatibility and the adhesion of the cured sealant on a test joint before applying to the entire project.
The temperature of the product, the surfaces and the working area should be between 0°F (-18°C) and 140°F (60°C). For best performance, store cartridge at room temperature at least 24 hours before use. Cut plastic nub of cartridge then screw on plastic nozzle. Insert cartridge into caulking gun, cut nozzle at a 45° angle to desired bead size (3/8'' is recommended for optimal joint protection).
Using a caulking gun, apply sealant with steady pressure, forcing sealant into joint. If the depth of the joint exceeds ½'' the use of a backer rod is recommended. PL Heavy Duty will not pop or splatter and will dispense smoothly on extrusion from the cartridge. Tooling of the sealant is allowed. Full cure may take 24-72 hours or longer depending on ambient conditions and volume of sealant used. Sealant is paintable in 1 hour. Latex paint is recommended. If using oil based/alkyd paint, a latex primer should be used first.
Clean tools and uncured sealant residue immediately with mineral spirits or paint thinner. Cured sealant must be carefully cut away with a sharp-edged tool.
