Weatherall UV Guard Textured Caulk Surface Preparation
• The logs must be clean, structurally sound, dry (23% moisture content maximum) and free from any grease, paraffins, oils, petroleum distillates, urethanes or other surface contaminants that could inhibit the ability of the sealant to bond to the wood fibers.
• Any finish, whatever the composition, may be incompatible with the sealant system if the finish deposits a heavy film on the surface of the wood.
• The sealant must be able to bond to the wood fibers.

Weatherall UV Guard Textured Caulk Application Method
• UV Guard Textured Caulk can be applied using a commercial pump or caulking gun (bulk loading, air-powered or standard gun).
• Do not thin this product with water.
• Hold nozzle at a 45° angle to apply bead.
• Apply uniform pressure to form a smooth, even bead. Tool the bead to a smooth finish.
• For best results, cured beads should be between 1/8” - 1/2” wide and 1/8” – 1/4” deep. For joints that exceed 1/4” width, install a polyethylene, closed-cell backer rod before caulking.
• Do not use in below-grade applications or below water line.
• NOTE: To tool bead use a narrow trowel and spray the back of the trowel with a release agent (50/50 water and isopropyl alcohol). This will allow the trowel to glide smoothly over the UV Guard Textured Caulk. Do not spray the release agent directly on the wood surface.
