Sealant Gun ( Set of 2 Pack )
Description: Caulk guns are devices that help people use caulk, a type of sealant, effectively. Caulk is a substance used to seal and adhere, such as closing a gap or crack between a window frame and jamb, or a sink and a vanity. Most any space can be sealed using caulk and a caulk gun. A caulking gun is a tool that holds a tube or cartridge that's filled with material used for sealing up gaps and cracks
Prep your workspace.Remove all existing caulk with a putty or utility knife. For silicone caulk removal, needle nose pliers are also useful—simply grab one edge of the old caulk strip and pull. If the caulk is very old or there are multiple layers, you can use a caulk softener for easier removal. Once all caulk is removed, clean the area with a household disinfectant or rubbing alcohol, then dry it with a cloth. If you prefer, you can mark the edges of the joint with painter's tape for easier cleanup.
Load the caulk gun.Trim the tip of the caulk canister with a utility knife; some caulk guns have a cutter in the handle to snip the tip off. Puncture the foil inside the nozzle using a nail. On some guns, there may be a pin attached to the handle for this purpose. Next, insert the canister so that the tip is facing out. Push the rod into the canister until it is securely in place. Pump the trigger until the caulk starts to come out.
Practice laying the bead.The line of caulk is known as the bead. If you're a first-timer, practice on a piece of paper so you can understand how the caulk will flow as you pull the trigger. Practice laying down the bead at a speed that's not too fast or too slow, so you can control the flow of the caulk.
Apply the caulk. Once you're comfortable, place the tip of the canister at a 45-degree angle on one end of the joint or gap. Pull the gun back steadily as you squeeze the trigger. Some types of caulk shrink as they dry (cure), so be sure to apply enough to fill the joint.
Smooth the caulk. Run a flat tool (the back of a spoon works) or even a wet fingertip along the bead to push it into the joint and smooth it out — this is known as tooling. Esposito says to finish tooling before the caulk "skins" over, meaning it loses its bonding ability and becomes difficult to work with. Wipe off any excess — some caulks require just water while others need a solvent. If you applied painter's tape, remove it now so the caulk dries neatly. It might be dry to the touch in 30 minutes, but caulk could take several days to fully cure.
Store the unused caulk. When stored properly, opened caulk can last for months. Simply remove the canister from the gun and cap it securely. The release lever on the back of the caulk gun will reverse the plunger so you won't squeeze out any excess caulk upon removal, says Esposito.
