Water-Based Caulk and Seal. Sold by the tube. Size: 310ml.
Features and Benefits
Cure time: All water-cleanup caulks cure by water evaporation. Cure is greatly slowed down by these weather conditions: combinations of low temperature (40 F or lower), humidity of 50% or more, no direct sunlight, and large bead size (over 1/2"). Big Stretch has resistance to rain washout after application sooner than most water-cleanup caulks, yet some general precautions should be taken. Allow 1-3 day's cure before exposure to direct rainfall. Use a plastic sheet to protect if rain is expected sooner, making sure there is good airflow between the sheet and Big Stretch to help curing. In severe weather conditions, as described above, longer cure time will be needed (2 weeks or more!) before rain resistance is achieved.
Where to use Big Stretch: Big Stretch is perfect for many interior and exterior applications, including: windows, doors, siding, vents, soffits, eaves, and baseboards. It is also good for crown molding and sound proofing interior walls.
Where not to use Big Stretch: Big Stretch should not be used or specified in areas of water submersion, where frequent or prolonged puddling occurs, or in areas of high foot or vehicle traffic (i.e., swimming pools, tubs, showers, sidewalks, driveways, highways, and patios). Not for use on roofs, where prolonged dampness or possible submersion may inhibit curing.
Applying Big Stretch:
1. Cut spout at an angle to desired opening size
2. Use a caulk gun. Apply to surfaces between 40° F and 120° F. For best results, apply to dry surfaces free of oil, frost, dirt, and loose material.
3. Smooth to a perfect bead with a wet sponge, or finger.
4. Allow 24 hours before exposure to water (2-3 days in cold or humid weather).
Tip: If rain is expected within 24 hours, cover unprotected areas with plastic sheeting.
