  • Best Practices for Dow FC Parking Structure Sealant

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Clean all concrete, masonry and stone joints of all contaminants and impurities. Porous substrates should be cleaned where necessary by grinding, saw cutting, blast cleaning (sand or water), mechanical abrading or a combination of these methods as required to provide a sound, clean, dry surface for sealant application. Dust, loose particles, etc., should be blown out of joints with dry, oil-free compressed air or be vacuum cleaned. Metal and glass surfaces adjacent to masonry should be cleaned by wiping with an oil-free absorbent cloth saturated with solvent such as xylene or toluene. Do not use alcohols as they inhibit the cure.

    2. Application

      When using Dow Corning FC Parking Structure Sealant with other Dow Corning® brand Parking Structure Sealants, please note that these materials are all compatible with one another in either the cured or uncured state, may come in contact with one another, and will bond to one another provided no debris or other contaminants interfere with the bond.
