What does the C920 standard mean in regards to flexibility?
AMP Window Door and Siding provides maximum flexibility and passes the standard ASTM C920, class 35 for white, and class 25 for clear. This ASTM specification tests the properties of a cured elastomeric joint sealant to understand how the sealant withstands expansion and contraction of joint movement in extreme temperatures.
What is needed to clean up AMP sealants?
Mineral spirits or any other solvent is required to clean up AMP sealants. If uncured AMP sealant needs to be cleaned up, scrape up as much excess product as possible, using a razor blade or non-abrasive scouring pad on natural or fiberglass surfaces, then use mineral spirits in a well-ventilated area to wipe away excess sealant. Avoid using solvents on skin.
How do I open the cartridge to get ready to use?
When you are ready to apply your sealant, load your AMP sealant into a standard caulk gun. Secure the cartridge and cut the nozzle tip at the desired opening (choose 3/16” for the recommended nozzle size for a perfect bead) at a 45° angle and fully remove plastic tip. Next, puncture the foil seal within the cartridge, below the nozzle. Ensure the cartridge is secure, apply even pressure, and draw the nozzle along the seam. Ensuring you cut the nozzle tip clean with no jagged edges will ensure a clean bead during application.
