Sashco Big Stretch Caulk Application Information
•If dirt or oils are present, wash with any household cleaner, rinse to remove and allow to thoroughly dry.
• Remove any old caulk, especially silicone. Use a silicone remover such as McKanica® Silicone Caulk Remover.
•Joint design: Insert backer rod into joints deeper than 1/2” to provide for proper sealant depth and a stronger, longer lasting seal.
• Choose Bead Size – Cut the spout at a 45° angle to your desired bead size and puncture the inner seal.
• Gun Big Stretch into the joint and release the trigger at the end of each bead.
• For a smoother bead, use a damp foam or paint brush with a light, skimming touch.
• Clean up tools and hands with warm water and soap.
• Leftover Big Stretch can be stored if the nozzle is tightly wrapped with plastic wrap and a rubber band.
