Silicone Sealant

In order to apply a silicone sealant, you will need to load your tube of silicone sealant into a silicone gun. You should make sure that the surface you plan to apply it to is free of dirt, dust and mist because that can lead to a weaker seal. Use a utility knife to cut a hole at the tip of the silicone tube. Cut it at a 45 degree angle, and as close to the tip as possible. Finally, you can use the silicone gun to apply sealant to the surface you are working on.
