What do you mean by smoothing agent?
Soapy water tess, stops it rucking up.
Some oil mastics are better with white spirit.
Plumbers would swear by spit on the finger.
I used a bit of Ct1 multisolve. Best to put on what ever you are using to tool the sealant rather than the sealant itself.
the plumbers that swear by spit on the finger have black silicone (from bacteria in their mouth) within the year.
the plumbers that use fairy liquid have a nice green tinge to their work.
or so ive been told
Has anyone painted or sanded this stuff yet?
Missed your comment @Spottie. I had similar issues with 123
I used mine last week. I was very impressed. SO much faster than waiting for putty to dry on those annoying little bits. Quite rubbery to sand, but......
This is definitely being stocked on my van.
I've used loads of this. Yes - agreed rubbery - doesn't really sand down. Just comes off when I've tried to sand it. Very easy to use. Haven't tried printing it yet. Ct1 multi solve OMG thank you so much for putting me onto this @ahenrypd
Oh and thanks for the free sample of putty. It really is good and a great price. It paints really well. I used BM aura external satin on it.
Used it about three weeks ago and as I had nothing else to do as it was raining again I checked it this morning.
Glad to confirm that all is well, still some flex there when pushed finger in it.
Definitely will be using this instead of putty in the future.
Many thanks @sealantsonline. See you soon when I come for the repair care course.
Used last week acrylic paint cissed did not stick, anyone else use this as their Go to putty replacement?
Yes I have used with BM HighHide and Aura without issue.
Which paint did you use?
I'll have the last one then please John...I work in a college and I like showing new products to my students...especially as decorators dont do as much glazing these days putty is virtually unheard of
Oh..paintable in 2 hours?..when we were swinging around in cradles 70 feet up on the side of a building, in the middle of a late 70's winter the putty then was paintable in 2 minutes!
Acrylic is waterbased, will not like sticking to oil. Try alkyds. Veg oil based like linseed oil putty, try BM. Advance.
I used sandtex flexi gloss and whilst it didn't ciss the adhesion was poor. Not that I need to be able to sand it, but it seems an odd claim on the tube that it's sandable as it really isn't. Other than that I quite like it.
