Lesson 6.1: Proper Application

1. For best results, clean and dry all surfaces with a residue-free solvent, such as Permatex® Brake and Parts Cleaner.  

2. Cut nozzle to desired bead size, 1/16 “ to 1/4 “ in diameter. An 1/8” bead is usually sufficient for most applications.  

3. Remove cap, puncture tube or cartridge seal and attach extension nozzle.  

4. Apply a continuous and even bead of silicone to one surface, first tracing the internal areas of the gasket configuration, then all surrounding bolt holes as shown below:  

5. Assemble parts immediately while silicone is still wet. Finger tighten until material begins to squeeze out around flange.  

6. Let dry for on hour then tighten to torque specifications.

7. Allow 24 hours to fully cure before filling with fluids or returning to service.  

8. Re-torque will not be necessary after the product has cured.
