Guide to Cold Weather Caulking and Sealing

The problem when caulking in colder temperatures is related to three general situations which may cause poor bonding. They are:

  1. The building material may be covered with a film of ice – possibly too thin to be easily visible.
  2. The sealant may be too cold to properly "wet down" to the applied material.
  3. The sealant may be too stiff to gun or tool.

Guidelines to Good Glazing

By following these basic guidelines to good glazing you can be assured that every project will result in a good sealant application. Gunnable sealants, when applied as a cap bead, should form a bevel or watershed away from the glass. When tape is used to the sightline, it should form a watershed when compressed. Do not undercut a sealant, compound, or tape below the sightline. Minimum cap bead depth should be from 1/4" to 3/8". For banded insulating units, a minimum of 1/8" sealant contact above the band is recommended. Tool and finish the sealant with a Tooling Spatula or Stick Tool as required. Do not use liquid tooling aids such as water, soap, or alcohol (such as IPA). These materials may interfere with sealant cure and adhesion and may create an unpleasant finished look.

Going through paper towels like mad?

When cleaning glass windows, do you find yourself going through rolls of paper towels and having to reorder them sooner than you'd like to? No matter what the quality of the paper towel you use, isn't it aggravating to see those lint remnants on your windows, glass shower doors or car windshields? Every once in a while, a product is discovered that makes chores a little less hectic. CRL Lint Free Glass Wipes is that product.

Are you doing your part to be Green?

Many companies grab on to the latest fad in hopes of growing their market share and/or padding their profits. I can remember when Rubik's cube became a hot commodity in the early 80's. Many enthusiasts hopped on the bandwagon and were selling them. Like all of the rest of the fads, the "cube" faded away in popularity and in sales. Well, there is a new buzz word that's here to stay, that is if we want to keep earth as our home. It's now commonly known as Sustainability or Going Green.

Spring Cleaning Done Simple

My favorite time of year in the Midwest is Spring. The only downside to this time period, which starts the tree and flower budding process, and, of course, much welcomed warmer weather, is the mention of “spring cleaning”. No, not the just the car, but the windows in the house. Get out the glass cleaner, two bottles, if the spouse wants to assist, paper towels, a ladder and lots of patience for such a tedious and “labor of love” task. Well, it has to be done in order to scratch this job off “the list”; and you know what that is!

I always get a kick out of CRL Sprayway Glass Cleaner S50 and its affect on the ladies. It seems that the aroma from this foam cleaner is the alluring factor that makes this product so popular. One of my eBay customer's Feedback comments was that his wife is now very happy.

Most Popular Aerosol Glass Cleaner

CRL Sprayway Glass Cleaner # 1973 is one of our most popular aerosol glass cleaners. This product contains effective cleaning agents that leave a pleasant aroma unlike other household brands. This big differential is this: Once quick spray is all it takes to loosen up dirt and grime. Its foaming action lifts the dirt for easy wiping and leaves no streaks!
