a. Remove damaged section of gasket.
Remove a minimum of 1.00 INCH section of gasket.

nonconductive and will render gasket material nonconductive.
Maximum width of bond line is 0.030 INCH.
d. Bond gaps at repair separation with sealing compound. Use sealing compound (item 156A, App F) and
syringe (item 196, App F).
