Silicone for Bathrooms
Bathroom silicone sealants find many applications within the construction & refurbishment sector in Ireland. Unfortunately, there are a myriad of low quality silicone type sealants available in Ireland, and the old saying ‘price is only ever an issue in the absence of value’ is often forgotten! It is certainly true to say that the bitterness of a poor quality sealing job remains long after the extreme sweetness of a low price is forgotten. However, in using our U14 sanitary sealant, the quality of our product is never an issue.
U14 is a transparent, non-toxic, solvent free quality silicone sealant developed especially for sanitary applications. The product has excellent adhesion to glass, ceramic tile, brass, stainless steel, ABS plastic and most other materials commonly found in wet room areas. Typical applications for this silicone sealant include sealing joints in high humidity areas such as bathrooms, showers, kitchens, cold stores and all other wet areas.
The mould resistance properties of U14 are a tribute to its unmatched quality. The product has been shown to have strong anti fungal and anti mould efficacy against the range of moulds, yeasts and algae, commonly found in Ireland.
In some specific applications, surface priming with X250 may be necessary, particularly with metals which may have been surface treated beforehand.
X250 may also be used as an adhesion promoter, especially applicable when metal parts are embedded or bonded with U14. For premium applications, X250 may be baked onto metal parts.
For baking applications, please contact our Technical Services Laboratory for specific advice.
U14 is conveniently supplied in 310 ml cartridges and application is via a standard caulk gun.
Our laboratory is happy to provide specific advice on joint movement and joint design considerations.
