How to use this product
Rebates and grooves should be rigid, free from distortion, true and square, and should be clean, dry and unobstructed before glazing.
Rebates and grooves should be of a size which allows adequate edge cover and putty volume. Minimum bed putty – 2mm, minimum front putty – 4mm where timber beads are used, and 2mm bed putty and 12mm front putty where no glazing beads are used.
Depth of rebate: 10mm for 3-4mm glass, 15mm for 5-8mm glass.
Two coats of good quality house paint should be applied not less than 2 weeks and not more than 4 weeks after completion of glazing.
Paint should be carried out 2mm above the top line of the putty.
Do not use kerosene, turps or other material to aid in working the putty
Allow putty to skin before applying paint
Product can be applied by hand or with a putty knife. Add a few drops of linseed oil on the hands or knife to make for easier working
Putty can thicken in cold weather. Warming the putty by working it in the hands before the application will soften it.
Putty must be painted in exterior applications.
High humidity, cold weather and use in interior applications can extend skinning times.
Putty can separate on prolonged standing. If excessive oil is observed on the surface try to work the entire mixture together to redistribute the oil.
Before painting, clean and dust & filler particles using Selleys Sugar Soap or Selleys Super Kleen.
