Dicor 501

Dicor 501.....once you have used what you want.....can it be stored or do you just toss the chaulking tube?

I stick a nail in the tip. When ready to use again, I will stick a longer nail to get past any dried up caulk, and really work that around. Eventually, I will get a good flow again.

I duct tape the end of the tube. Works great for all sorts of things. Construction adhesive, caulk, roof cement etc.

This is what I use to seal all caulking material.

Well that is just too cool!

Another item for the tool box.

Save just one tube of goop and it will be paid for.

Good tips! What do you use to prepare Dicor prior to using 501 lapping sealant?

If the old Dicor is not too dried out just apply over the top of the old stuff.
If it is hard and cracked a wipe with an acetone wetted rag (not sopping!) will make the surface of the Dicor "sticky" and the new Dicor will stick much better.
