Rubex MS is most commonly applied by pumping, either by caulking gun or power gun. It can also be applied by trowel or stiff brush. Do not handle, move, or pack for one hour until a surface film has formed. If necessary, clean tools and equipment with mineral spirits. Once cured, Rubex MS can be painted with most industrial and consumer paints, though testing is recommended.
