ABC ACRYLIC SEALANT can be applied on joints to prevent cracks between gypsum board, wood or concrete. It can also be applied between walls, ceilings, corners, door/window frames, walls and along baseboards and cornices.

The surface must be fully cured & structurally stable . Make sure the surface is dry, clean and free from contaminants such as dirt, dust, loose material, oils and chemicals.
TIP: Use masking tape for best result and a perfectly straight application line. Apply the tape protecting both sides of the gap to be sealed. Remove the tape before the sealant is dry.
a. Use a standard caulking gun to dispense the sealant.
Note: The use of a caulking gun ensures even distribution for a professional finish.
TIP: Hold the sealant gun at an angle of 45° while pulling the gun towards yourself. Find the right working speed to properly fill the necessary gaps.
b. Ensure the sealant is in contact with both sides of joints and gaps. Use foam backer rods to establish good bonding at the sides and to control the depth of the sealant.
Remove excess sealant and tool with flat knife. Depending on humidity & temperature, applied sealant is touch dry after 30 minutes and can be sanded and painted over after 24 hours. Note: Protect from water exposure for at least 4 hours after application.
