How to Use Flex Seal Liquid

Brush, Roll, Dip, or Pour!

Leaks and cracks can pop up anywhere in your house. And that’s why Flex Seal Liquid is so versatile. You can brush it, roll it, dip it, or pour it anywhere you need it. Flex Seal Liquid seals out water, air, and moisture.  It’s mildew and chemical resistant. And it also prevents rust and corrosion. It’s your solution to that anytime, anywhere problem.

Flex Seal Liquid is perfect for roofs, gutters, ponds, birdbaths, basements, foundations, tools, sporting equipment, automobiles, RVs, campers, trailers, boats, watersports, projects, and hobbies.

Check List Before You Start Using Flex Seal Liquid

#1 Prepping Your Project Area:
No matter how you choose to use Flex Seal Liquid, you must prep first. Pick a well-ventilated area. That could be your garage with the door open, a room in your house with windows open and a fan going, or your backyard. If you choose to do your project outside, just be sure to pick a dry weekend (no rain, sleet, rain, hail, dew). Also, put down a drop cloth. This will prevent you from spilling Flex Seal Liquid on unwanted areas.

*Flex Tip: Slice a couple of apples and/or onions in half and set them in your project area (with the center facing upward). This will help to absorb the fumes of Flex Seal Liquid.

#2 Clean The Surface:
Make sure the surface you are going to be applying Flex Seal Liquid on is clean, dry, and free of any dirt, oil, or grease. You can also increase the adhesion by lightly sanding the surface. Many of our fans use sandpaper to sand off rust, too.

Brush & Roll It.
In an even sweeping motion, brush or roll the Flex Seal Liquid on your surface. Always be sure to brush or roll over a larger area than just where the leak occurred. Allow each coat to dry for 24 hours before adding another coat. You might need to apply several even coats in order to completely cover all cracks and to fill all holes. Flex Seal Liquid takes 24 to 48 hours to fully cure.

*Flex Seal Liquid Tip: Make sure that you don’t leave the can of Flex Seal Liquid open for an extended period of time, or else a dry film will form at the top. When you close the can, be sure to close it securely.

Dip It.
In a slight swirling motion, dip the object directly in the Flex Seal Liquid. After coating the surface, remove the object and let the excess Flex Seal Liquid drip back into the can. Hang or clip the object to dry above your drop cloth. But make sure that as it’s suspended, it’s in the same position as when removed from the Flex Seal Liquid. Once fully cured, you will have a super strong, no-slip, rubberized coating on the surface. There may be excess Flex Seal Liquid hanging from your items, but don’t worry. You can just cut that off with a pair of scissors.

Pour It.
Lastly, pour Flex Seal Liquid directly on the surface. Gravity will help the Flex Seal Liquid seep into cracks, holes, and hard-to-reach places. Don’t stop pouring until the surface has been covered and all cracks and holes have been completely filled.
