• Begin by installing backup material for joint or joint filler, setting blocks, spacer shims and tapes as needed.
• In a continuous operation, apply SCS2800 SilGlaze II sealant horizontally in one direction and vertically from the bottom to the top of the joint opening.
• Apply the sealant with a positive pressure by pushing the bead ahead of the nozzle and making sure that the entire cavity is filled sans air pockets or voids.
• Tooling should be done neatly, forcing the sealant into contact with the sides of the joint or cavity, thus helping to eliminate any internal voids and assuring good substrate contact.
• Due to the smooth consistency of SCS2800 SilGlaze II sealant tooling agents such as water, soap or detergent solutions are not necessary or recommended. Dry tooling is recommended.
• For cap bead glazing the sealant applied to the sill should be tooled in such a fashion to prevent pooling of precipitation and cleaning solution.
• Sealant should only be applied to surfaces that are clean, dry and free of frost.
