General installation instructions:
- Apply masking tape to the face of the veneer to protect it from the sealant. Masking tape will allow for easier removal of sealant if any comes into contact with the face of the tile. Sealant should only be applied into the joints, adhering on the flanks of the veneer. Applying the masking tape results in a cleaner look and allows for easy tooling without spillage onto the face of the veneer.
- Apply sealant to the joint, filling completely.
- “Tool” when complete (within 5–7 minutes) for a smooth professional finish.
- Remove masking tape immediately after tooling. Wipe any sealant off the face of the tile immediately.
Please note: Caulk is non-returnable. Ships to the U.S. only.
