Ensure all surfaces are clean, sound and free from dust and loose particles. Moisten surfaces to be sealed with water. This assists the curing process.

For the FILL AND FIX PRODUCT, carefully fix nozzle. Do not overtighten or force.

ALWAYS USE CAN UPSIDE DOWN. For GUN GRADE, tighten securely into one of our range of guns.

Only partially fill cavities as the foam will expand to fill the remaining space. Any excess foam can be removed whilst still wet with EVERFLEX FOAM CLEANER. Cured foam must be removed mechanically.. When used for fixing door frames, supports must be used until the foam is fully cured.

Grease skin with body lotion or similar.

 

IMPORTANT – Re-use is only possible by cleaning the nozzle and valve tip with EVERBUILD DUAL PURPOSE FOAM CLEANER before the foam has cured. Do not push any object into the valve as the contents may explode.
