Pics of 995 "wet glaze" installation

Recommended Posts

Thank you. I have followed this site as a lurker. Its always fun and informative to drop in now and then.

The OP was looking for pics and I had this movie.

I would suggest requiring a mock up window caulked by the the prospective caulking sub contractor. Watch them and see their application and subsequent final product.

Thanks again. Keep up the good fellow film dudes

Solx , You must have run into someone unaware of GSA specs. If you use the right tools you can get the required 3/4 in. bead perfectly flat and symmetrical . All the gov'mt . jobs I have done ( which are highly scrutinized) were taped and tooled. I have seen the concave jobs you are talking about ... not right.

I'm surprised it was spec'd with 1/2" bead ??? Nice video. :thumb

I'm not knocking your work, but I was trained with the understanding the 995 had to be tooled to insure that there were no voids in the wet glaze. As far as the concave bead goes it sound to me like you saw someone using the wrong trowel. :dunno

This video may help. It is the application of Dow 995. There is no tooling. The specification requires a 45 degree angle across the top of the bead. The problem with tape and tool is you leave a concave surface.

This job required 1/2" bead. ( 1/4" on glass...1/4" on frame)

I didn’t see the video. Can you send it to me? I’ve got to install some next week
