Re-bedding deck hardware
In the cooler months polysulfide (ps)and 5200 long cure will not cure in a week, so you could come back a week later and finish.You can also use 5200 quick cure,tighten down ''till it squeezes out and tighten the rest of the way just before you leave.
The main thing here is that after snugging down initially and squeezing,is that both surfaces being bedded be completely covered so no water creeps by. Really, after accomplishing this the 5200 or ps can completely cure before tightening down the rest of the way. This may sound kinda scary to some but after you''ve made the soft gasket by snugging and squeezing, and bonding has taken place,it''s pretty much a dun-deal.
