Flexible Gap Fillers

Selleys No More Gaps - Multi Purpose

P_SelleysNoMoreGapsMultipurpose

Selleys No More Gaps Multi-purpose is a general-purpose interior/ exterior flexible gap filler. Its water based formulation delivers superior flexibility & long term resistance to cracking & crumbling, giving you a lasting finish. This formulation makes it ideal for sealing or filling gaps and joints where expansion and contraction occurs such as between a skirting board and a wall, which can cause rigid fillers and other less flexible gap fillers to crack and fall out.


Features

  • Superior flexibility to cope with building movement, meaning the cracks and gaps will be hidden for longer. Has greater than 300% elongation/stretch and up to +/- 15% movement capability.
  • Superior adhesion to a broad range of surfaces, resulting in a lasting finish.
  • A smooth flawless finish and minimal shrinkage from the sides of the gap or joint, to give you the professional look.
  • Can be painted over with both water and oil based paints, after the surface has skinned. (Approximately 30 minutes after application). Wide joints are best left for 48 hours before painting as some paints shrink during drying that can cause the paint to crack.
  • Is formulated for long term resistance to cracking and crumbling.
  • Is water based, so can be cleaned up easily and quickly with water.
  • Will not stain building materials.
  • Has good resistance to weathering.
  • Is available in a range of sizes and delivery styles.

How to use this product

  • Ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from dust, grease, flaking/powdery paint and old or crumbling caulk. If porous surfaces are greasy or dirty, we would recommend using SELLEYS LIQUID SUGAR SOAP. If the surface is non-porous eg glass or metal, firstly clean the surface with Mineral Turpetine and then again with Methylated Spirits. If there is old difficult to remove residue such as old paint, we recommend using paint stripper such as SELLEYS KWIK STRIP SMART. Ensure the surface is dry before applying the product.
  • We also recommend sanding the surface back with a good quality sanding block, such as a ROTA COTA Sanding Block Medium/Course grain, as the gap filler will adhere more readily to a scratched up surface.
  • Ensure you tape both sides of the gap before applying the product. This ensures a neat finish and makes it easier to clean up.
  • Cut the seal at the top of the cartridge and cut the nozzle at a 45° angle, to the size of the gap opening. Fit the nozzle to the top of the cartridge.
  • Insert the cartridge into a caulking gun such as SELLEYS LIGHT SPEED Caulking gun. We recommend SELLEYS LIGHT SPEED Caulking Gun, as its new innovative pressure release design reduces the mess which results from run on and stress on your hands, which is critical if you are doing a lot of gap filling.
  • Hold the caulking gun at a 45° angle. Press the nozzle opening against the joint, apply steady pressure to the caulking gun and extrude the flexible gap filler forcing the gap filler into the gap and move along the joint in one smooth action.
  • For a smooth finish, smooth with a finger dipped in water. For a professional finish use a paint scraper such as a 50mm ROTA COTA Soft Grip Scraper.
  • Avoid smearing on surrounding surfaces, see handy tip.
  • Clean up excess with a damp cloth immediately and clean hands and tools with water.
  • Allow to skin (about 30 minutes) before painting with water-based paints. If oil-based paints are to be used, or if gaps are large, allow sealant to set for about 24 hours and ensure the product is completely cured.
  • To ensure you get a professional finish ensure you paint with a good quality paint and paint brush. Painting with a good brush ensures the finish and durability of the paint is increased. We recommend a 50mm SELLEYS SPIRIT Edger Brush, as the cut angle of the bristles takes the work out of applying paint.
  • If you are filling a rigid crack such as a crack in the wall, we recommend SELLEYS SPAKFILLA COLOURSMART, as the product goes on pink and dries white when it is ready to be painted.

Handy tips

Tips for Filling Gaps, Cracks & Holes Inside & Around the Home

  • Ensure you tape both sides of the gap before applying the product. This ensures a neat finish and makes it easier to clean up.
  • When first applying product, extrude a small amount onto a piece of scrap material to ensure a smooth continuous flow of gap filler, and a perfect finish.
  • If you are going to wipe off the excess gap filler with a wet finger, ensure you wet your finger with water and not saliva, as saliva contains bacteria and this will increase the chances of mould growing in your gap filler.
  • Allow the surfaces to skin prior to painting, which is approximately 30 minutes. Protect from rain until firmly skinned. Allow for longer skin and cure times in damp conditions.
  • Some water based under coats & flat paints may crack on drying. To reduce this effect allows the product to cure for 24 hours in small gaps or 48 hours in larger gaps before painting with such paints.
  • Keep a pack of SELLEYS Hand Kleen Wipes handy to wipe up any spills and for cleaning any material off the skin before it cures. They are an easy and effective way to keep clean on the job.

Safety tips

  • Avoid eye contact and repeated or prolonged skin contact. Wash hands after use. Keep out of reach of children.
  • For advice, contact a Poisons Information Centre (AUS 131 126; NZ 0800 764 766) or a doctor.
  • For further detail on the safe use of this product, please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet, which can be downloaded from this site.

Storage and re-use

  • Store in cool dry conditions, between 5°C and 25°C.
  • Product should be used within 6 months of opening.
  • After use keep the nozzle on the cartridge.
  • NO MORE GAPS is a water based acrylic sealant that dries by water evaporation. Sealing the nozzle with placsticene or Blu Tac then wrapping the nozzle in aluminium foil and sealing tightly with tape can prevent evaporation for longer storage.
  • Uncured NO MORE GAPS is sensitive to extremes of heat and cold. It should not be allowed to be frozen or heated during storage.
