Sealing gutters and downspouts

Artificial Content Title -- to be hidden

Loctite® Clear Silicone Sealant is ideal for sealing and joining lap seams in aluminum or vinyl gutters and downspouts

Step-by-Step Directions

  1. Before applying, check the Gutter Manufacturer instruction for sealant application and location. 
  2. For joining gutters, apply a continuous bead along the line of fasteners, staying within the overlap.
  3. Assemble and fasten as soon as possible, as sealant "skins" rapidly (tack free in 45 minutes and full cure in 24 hours).
