Getting started

Before use:

Working conditions

Only apply at temperatures between +5°C and +40°C.

Surface requirements

The surface should be dry, clean and free of dust and grease. Synthetics should first be roughened and/or pre-treated with Bison Silicone Primer.

Preliminary surface treatment

For a good result, cover the joint’s edges with masking tape. If necessary, prevent three-sided bonding by filling the joint with a foam backer rod or PE film.

Tools

Apply cartridge with a Power Pistol. Multi Tool to open the cartridge and tooling the sealant.

During use:

Handling of packaging

Use sealant gun to handle cartridge. Open the cartridge by cutting off the plastic nipple on the top side at the screw thread with a sharp knife. Screw on the nozzle and chamfer at the desired width.

Directions for use

Ensure a minimum joint width of 6 mm and a maximum of 20 mm. The joint depth depends on the joint width. Keep a joint depth of 6 mm up to a joint width of 12 mm. Beyond that, the joint depth should be half the joint width. Inject the sealant evenly into the joint and tool within 10 minutes with a putty knife, moistened with a soap solution. Remove the applied masking tape immediately after tooling. After approx. 15 minutes, a surface skin will form.

Points of attention

Silicone hardens under the influence of humidity. Contact with humidity is therefore absolutely necessary during curing.

After use:

Stains/residue

Immediately remove stains with white spirit. The cured sealant can only be removed mechanically or with Bison silicone sealant residue remover.

Storage conditions

Store in properly sealed packaging in a dry place at between +5°C and +25°C.
