I seal the end with a screw, place the tube in a zip lock bag with most of the air removed and place it in the freezer. It takes about 30 minutes to thaw out and is as good as new.

Three daze ago I replaced the Skylight.....When I was done I suffered a euphony and a light went on, grabbed a very course threaded Loooong wood screw shoved it down that rascal's nose, and when I went to use it today I gave that screw a tug and it pulled about two inches of cured Sika right out the end. I started tug'n gently and that stuff just stretched it's way right out.

If it works for you pass it on... If it don't blame Gomer

Yesterday, I wanted to include that we use "Little Red Caps" on the tip of the tube over the nail/screw before sticking the tube in the freezer - but I couldn't remember their "real" name...only what we call them and this isn't that kind of site!



I'm sure the marketing team had fun writing these instructions for use ~

Richard....you a lucky man. If DW saw Sika in the Fridge, I'd be eating AND sleeping in the AS.
