Handy tips

  • Ensure you tape both sides of the gap before applying the product. This ensures a neat finish and makes it easier to clean up.
  • When first applying product, extrude a small amount onto a piece of scrap material to ensure a smooth continuous flow of silicone sealant.
  • Remove the tape before the silicone sealant skins.
  • For a better finish complete painting prior to use of the sealant as it can not be painted over.
  • For a better finish use a spatula dipped in mineral turpetine or detergent and water to tool off the sealant.
  • Work in sections that can be completed before sealant skins. Tooling off and tape removal must be completed before skinning occurs or a rough surface may result, so working in sections allows for a better finish.
  • Keep a pack of SELLEYS Sugar Soap Wipes handy to wipe up any spills and for cleaning. They are an easy and effective way to keep clean on the job.

Safety tips

  • Uncured product may irritate eyes. If in eyes, flood the eyes for at least 15 minutes and seek medical advice.
  • Avoid contact with skin, if contact occurs, wipe off immediately and wash with detergent. It may irrtate sensitive skin.
  • Avoid breathing in vapours.
  • Ensure you use a well ventilated area as product releases methyl ethyl ketoxime while curing.
  • For advice, contact a Poisons Information Centre (AUS 131 126; NZ 0800 764 766) or a doctor.
  • For further detail on the safe use of this product, please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet, which can be downloaded from this site.
  • Keep away from children.

Storage and re-use

  • Store in cool dry conditions, below 30°C
  • The sealant should be used within 6 months after opening.
  • After use keep the nozzle on the cartridge
  • Silicone is a reactive product and is designed to cure once exposed to humidity. While the product may be stored for a few months once opened, it does have a limited shelf life. Storage in an upright position in a cool dry place is recommended to maximise the storage life.
  • If the sealant is going to be used again within a few days, leave the nozzle on and merely extrude approximately 2 cm of product before storing the cartridge upright. This will cure to a plug which can easily be pulled out when required.
  • For longer storage periods, leave the nozzle on and place a piece of plasticene or Blu Tack over the end of the nozzle. Tightly tape a piece of aluminium foil over the whole nozzle to exclude any air.
  • When you want to re-use the product, simply take off the foil and plug from the old nozzle pull out the excess silicone from the nozzle with a corkscrew, then re-pierce any cure at the tip of the cartridge and re-use.
  • If cure has taken place into the cartridge, the product is unlikely to be in a useable state and should be discarded.
