Tips for Best Results
Use a paint tray to reduce the amount of time that you have to keep your can of Flex Seal Liquid open.
Whether you brush, roll, dip, or pour, we always recommend applying Flex Seal Liquid in even coats and allowing 24 hours between coats. If you press it and it’s soft, it’s not dry yet. Allow 48 hours to completely dry. Depending on temperature and humidity, dry times will vary between indoor and outdoor applications.
Remember, if light passes through, you’re going to need to apply another coat. Apply several coats until the surface has been completely covered and all cracks and holes have been filled.
Use a clean, dry cloth to wipe up any spills. Alcohol can be used to wipe residue before it cures.
When it’s time to store your Flex Seal Liquid, make sure the lid is on tight, and always store it in a cool, dry environment. Never store Flex Seal Liquid above 120 degrees.
