Internal

To achieve a high quality seal, ensure the socket is clean and free from any dirt, dust and that it is dry. Remove the protective film liner from putty pad. Make a slit in the pad which will enable the cable to be passed through. Press the pad firmly into the socket recess ensuring full contact is made to all sides. Make sure the pad is not damaged or punctured during this process. Remove the remaining film liners and trim off any excess material to leave a neat finish.

External

To achieve a high quality seal, ensure the socket is clean and free from any dirt, dust and that it is dry. Remove the protective film liner from putty pad. Mould the component around the extremities of the box to make an effective seal, trimming an excess of material.
