Directions & FAQs
Protective clothing is recommended prior to starting any projects, make sure the surface is clean, dry and free of grease, oil and dirt. You can either brush, roll, dip or pour Flex Seal Liquid directly onto surface.
Increase adhesion by etching surface with sand paper.
Allow each coat to dry completely (24 to 48 hours) before adding additional coats. Flex Seal Liquid fully cures in 48 hours.
Tips for Brushing/Rolling Applications
Brush or roll Flex Seal Liquid using an even sweeping motion. Apply several even coats until the surface has been completely covered and ALL cracks and holes have been filled. Always brush or roll over a larger area than just where the leak occurred.
Tips for Dipping Applications
Dip object into Flex Seal Liquid, making a slight swirling motion. Once you feel the surface has been fully coated, remove and let any excess liquid drip back into the can. Hang or clip object in the same vertical position as it came out of the can and let dry.
Once fully cured, you will have a super strong, no slip, rubberized coating on the surface.
Tips for Pouring Applications
Pour Flex Seal Liquid directly on the surface, allowing gravity to take the liquid into cracks, holes, and/or other hard-to-reach areas.
Continue to pour until the surface has been covered and all cracks and/or holes have been filled completely.
When pouring Flex Seal Liquid into an area of depth greater than ¼ inch, allow each ¼ inch layer to cure completely before pouring the next layer. Allow at least 48 hours for liquid to fully cure.
WARNING: Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Gloves and safety glasses are recommended. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
