    Specification Writers: Please contact your local Dow sales office or your Global Dow Connection before writing specifications on these products.

    A gel can simply be poured into the cleaned repaired area and cured. When repairing an area using an encapsulant, roughen the exposed surfaces of the cured encapsulant with an abrasive paper and rinse with a suitable solvent. This will enhance adhesion and permit the repaired material to become an integral matrix with the existing encapsulant. Silicone prime coats are not recommended for adhering products to themselves.
