What materials is this product suitable for?
Please contact your store to confirm avaliability, as some stores may have a limited range.
The following should only be used as a guide and the installer should apply all Australian Standards, BCA/NZBC requirements, and best practices when installing.
Surfaces to be sealed must be clean, dry and free from dust, grease, old mastic and flaking paint. If necessary clean with degreasing solvent such as white spirits.
Cut nozzle supplied at an angle and to the required opening. Cut end off nipple on cartridge, fit nozzle and insert in suitable caulking gun such as the Selleys Light Speed caulking gun.
If sealing lap joints, apply suitable size bead of Butyl Mastic to one surface through the intended fasten line. Bring surfaces together squeezing the mastic bead out on both surfaces and mechanically fix join where necessary.
If sealing open joints, apply Butyl Mastic by forcing it into the joint ahead of the nozzle. This method aids in properly filling the joint and forcing mastic to wet on to the sides of the joint. If required, smooth surface with spatula dipped into mineral turps.
Not an elastomeric compound, it should not be used in joints subject to considerable dynamic movement.
Should not be used where joint movement will exceed ±8%.
Maximum service is achieved when used within joints; it is not recommended to be used as a "skim" coating over joints.
Not recommended for use in joints required to resist static air or water pressure.
Surfaces must be clean and dry.
Life expectancy in joints is approximately 5 years
Interior applications may have greatly extended skin over time due to the reduced presence of sunlight.
Allow surface to skin before painting, i.e. approximately 24 hours after application.
Butyl Mastic can be painted over using oil or water based paints after the surface has skinned.
