Flex Shot™ is so easy to use! Just follow these simple steps:
- All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from dirt, grease and oil.
- Hold can at a 45-degree angle, push against the nozzle and apply directly to the area to be treated. For a perfect bead, apply in a steady, even motion. Adjust your speed to control the thickness of the bead.
- If further tooling is required, complete within 5 minutes. Remove excess sealant immediately with a dry paper towel.
- After using, extend a small amount of material beyond the end of the nozzle. This will cure and form a seal for the remaining material. Pull out this cured plug when you are ready to use again.
Flex Shot™ dries much faster than many other caulks and sealants. Flex Shot™ forms a tack- free skin in 20 minutes. Length of full cure time depends upon factors such as; temperature and humidity. It will become rubbery solid in about 24 hours.
Yes, you can smooth Flex Shot™ out with your finger and work with the product as desired! However, if you want to make any adjustments to the product, try to make these adjustments immediately after the product is applied, before it starts to dry. Remove any excess Flex Shot™ immediately, with a dry paper towel.
Yes! You can use the same can over and over again. Just make sure you leave a small bead (approximately 1/8”) sticking out of the top of the nozzle. Once it dries you can pull out the bead of dried product and use Flex Shot™ again and again. Remember it is best to store your Flex Shot™ in a cool dry place.
Flex Shot™ will adhere to most any surface, such as: porcelain, tile, metal, glass, fiberglass, wood, granite, stone, marble, fabric, upholstery, paper……. and just about any other surface that’s free of grease and oil.
No! Throw away your caulking gun – you won’t need it anymore! Our specially designed container delivers a reusable single step application process. A caulking gun is therefore not required.

After using Flex Shot™ with the extension tube, you can leave the extension tube affixed to the can of Flex Shot™ and dispense just enough product to leave a 1/8” bead sticking out of the extension tube.
