Hazards

                                               
;
ASSEMBLY: Open box, remove canister, handle and clamp.  Use a screwdriver to open can lid.  Place clamp around handle.  Hold clamp on canister and tighten securely.  CAUTION: IF NOT TIGHT SERIOUS INJURY CAN OCCUR.

PROPER ATTIRE: The application of crack sealer involves hot materials.  Proper attire should be worn when heating crack sealer.  At minimum, long sleeved shirt, full length pants, work gloves, protective footwear, safety goggles, face shield and respiratory mask should be worn.  USE EXTREME CAUTION.

TOOLS REQUIRED: Use a camping stove or gas grill as your Heat Source to achieve best results.  Other tools needed include the following; Screw Driver, Paint Stirrer (wood), Putty Knife 4"-5" wide, Wisk Broom, Tin Foil, Safety Glasses. Heat source should be set up in an open area.  Keep heat source away from house and/or deck.  Always keep away from children and pets.  Never put anything on top of canister.  The crack sealer needs to breathe while heating up.

PREPARATION: Prepare all cracks using a screwdriver and wisk broom BEFORE starting heating process.  All cracks must be clean of dirt, roots and grass.  Pay special attention to the side walls of the crack.  The cleaner the crack is the better USealUSA will bond and prevent roots from growing through sealer.  Important:  All cracks must be dry before applying crack sealer.  When heating the crack sealer, make sure canister handle is kept away from direct flame or the flame will melt and weaken the handle and can cause serious injury.  USE CAUTION. VERY HOT. Never have your face directly over the can during the heating process.  HEAT PROCESS is for OUTDOOR USE ONLY! USE CAUTION when using UsealUSA crack sealer.
          
HEATING UP THE CRACK SEALER
Step 1. Place Canister on burner, Set temperature to High Heat for a maximum of 3 minutes.  It is important to watch the timer.  If sealer rises before the heat time, remove the canister and place on safe surface, and proceed with Step 2. USE CAUTION

Step 2. Immediately with one hand holding the handle and another holding the paint stirrer, slowly push down between the sealer and the canister to separate the sealer from the canister.  Keep pushing until you reach the bottom of the canister.
*Note do not do this process on the burner.  Do this on a safe surface.

Step 3.  Place back on the burner and proceed to break sealer free from the side walls of the entire canister.  Start mixing for approximately 12 minutes.  The sealer should be similar viscosity of mixed paint. (Note that if the sealer is not at the perfect viscosity it will not become less effective).  Use Caution

NOTE: ONLY USE THE BOILING WATER PROCESS IF YOU ARE USING A TURKEY COOKER FOR YOUR HEAT SOURCE.

WARNING: UsealUSA Crack Sealer should be stored in 70 degrees for 48 hours prior to heating.

IMPORTANT:  Heating in cold windy conditions of 70 degrees and below will affect heat up time. We recommend using aluminum foil to make a wind barrier.  This will keep sidewalls of canister hot allowing for faster heat up.  This method allows you to fix cracks all year long.
