    Hi all,

    I'm currently undertaking a project to redesign the way in which caulk and silicone sealant is packaged due to the unsustainable nature of the rigid cartridges most commonly used.

    If anyone could spend 5 minutes filling out the survey below it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks :)

    I just keep a spare nozzle and swap it over when I need to . The set silicon in the original tube is easy to pull out to reuse the next time . No fuss and rarely more than a nozzle full gets wasted ( and half of that has set anyway) .

    In the past I have pulled off any excess at the end of the nozzle then blew out whats left in the nozzle with a bicycle pump.
    In work I simply use a compressed airline to clear any set caulk in the nozzle.
