    Filler RopePre-Caulking Filler Rope™, backer rod, Grip Strip – sounds boring, right?  All of these products  fill your caulking joint so you use less caulk and have a perfectly designed joint that stretches properly day in and day out. Boring? Perhaps, but better than redoing the work if you don’t use it. Use in all caulking joints 1/2” deep and 1/4” wide, or larger. Available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes.

     

     

    Caulking and Chinking Guns and Nozzles

    Quality Albion® caulking guns and specialty nozzles in a wide range of sizes and 139-3 gunshapes help you get every joint filled easily, quickly, and neatly. Nozzles fit on any Albion bulk loading gun.

    For high-volume chinking and caulking, there’s Sashco’s patented Snorkler®, a variable speed pump that saves time and labor costs. The self-priming pump applies caulk or chinking directly from a tapered 5 gallon bucket, delivering a smooth and consistently even bead every time. Save your hands from constant fatigue and use the Snorkler.
