Ames® Blue Max® Caulk is a tough, high solids, elastomeric rubber primarily used as a filler and sealer for concrete and masonry, cement backer board, ICF, wood, metal and EPDM, and is an accessory to other Ames products.
Application For Blue Max Caulk:
Begin by cleaning the crack or gap area and allow to dry. Next, pull off the Blue Max Caulk resealable cap and cut the nozzle at a 45° angle and at the desired bead size. To puncture the thin inner foil, use a Phillips head screwdriver or 1d nail. Insert the nail or screwdriver into the center of the caulk tube tip and remove it. Load the Blue Max Caulk tube into the caulking gun. Fill the crack or gap with sealant and smooth the bead as needed. Clean up any excess, uncured sealant with a damp sponge before it skins over. Blue Max Caulk is paintable in approximately 2 hours depending upon humidity and depth of fill. Be sure to reseal the cartridge for storage and re-use.
Apply to warm, dry surfaces between 50°F to 90°F (10°C to 30°C) and less than 30% humidity.
Protect from freezing. Store Blue Max Caulk above 50°F.
One tube of Blue Max Caulk should cover 55 linear feet at 3/16″ bead or 30 linear feet at 1/4″ bead when installing at a depth equivalent to half the width.
