To facilitate handling, Rubex 126 is extruded onto removable release paper backing. For most efficient usage, ensure all involved surfaces are clean and dry, although light films of lubricant on unpainted metals should not adversely affect performance. Once ready for application, it is recommended that the material be pressed onto one surface, stripped of its paper backing, and then brought into contact with the second surface. When using to seal applications involving fasteners, position on the entry side to prevent the penetration of contaminants through fastener holes.
