Application Method:

  1. Joint edges should be protected using masking tape.
  2. Cut the tip of the nozzle at a 45° angle to give a slightly larger hole than the gap that has to be filled.
  3. DP90 can be applied by a pneumatic or hand gun under a uniform pressure to extrude a continuous smooth bead.
  4. After application, the sealant can be finished by using a wet spatula within 5 to 10 minutes of application. The tape should be removed as soon as possible before formation of a skin.

The rate of cure in the joint is dependent on the ambient conditions, the assembled joint arrangement and the depth of the sealant between the joint faces.

Clean tools immediately after use with Alpha Cleaner T559. Clean hands with a proprietary hand cleaner.
