Improvement Project:

How to caulk metals, what to know.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Solvent

  • Rag/cloth

  • Caulking gun

  • Caulking tube

Guide:

 

At some point, you may need to apply caulking on a type of metal, be it copper, bonze, aluminum or even steel.  In such an instance, you should first prepare the metal surface for caulking by applying a solvent on such a surface, such as methyl ethyl ketone, which dissolves oily varnishes, epoxy resins, etc., all of which could otherwise complicate the caulking application; caulking on metal without first the application of a solvent rubbed on with a rag/cloth will diminish the caulking seal you will get.  See the solvent manufacturer for instructions.  Upon applying the solvent, then you may proceed to caulk on the metal with a caulking gun cocked with the appropriate kind of caulking tube for the job at hand.

Caution: When dealing with chemicals, such as those found in a solvent, make sure you take precautions; read all product manufacturer instructions.
