Suitable for sealing seams, joints and gaps, e.g., in bathrooms, showers, toilets and kitchens. Ideal for acrylic bathtubs, synthetic shower bases and shower walls. Bonds, among other things, to synthetics (acrylic/PVC), (glazed) tiles, enamel, ceramics, various metals (aluminium / stainless steel) and glass. Not suitable for bitumen, PE, PP or PTFE.
Only apply at temperatures between +5°C and +40°C.
The substrate must be properly dry, clean and free of dust and grease. Remove any existing sealant residue.
Preliminary surface treatment
For a good result, cover the joint’s edges with masking tape. If necessary, prevent three-sided bonding by filling the joint with a foam backer rod or PE film.
Handling of packaging
Use sealant gun to handle cartridge. Open the cartridge by cutting off the plastic nipple on the top side at the screw thread with a sharp knife. Screw on the nozzle and chamfer at the desired width.
Directions for use
Ensure a minimum joint width of 6 mm and a maximum of 20 mm. The joint depth depends on the joint width. Keep a joint depth of 6 mm up to a joint width of 12 mm. Beyond that, the joint depth should be half the joint width. Apply the sealant evenly and smooth it within 10 minutes with a mild soap solution (use Griffon Silicone Finish and Multi-tool). Remove the applied masking tape immediately after tooling. After approx. 15 minutes, a surface skin will form. Cured silicone sealant can only be removed mechanically.
Points of attention
Silicone hardens under the influence of humidity. Contact with humidity is therefore absolutely necessary during curing. Alijd consider a joint of at least 6 mm wide. By applying masking tape along the joints completely smooth seams are achieved, remove the tape immediately after smoothing. The sealant is loadable with water after 2 hours; however, do not touch or load mechanically.
Immediately remove stains with white spirit. The cured sealant can be removed either mechanically or with Griffon silicone sealant residue remover.
Store in properly sealed packaging in a dry place at between +5°C and +25°C.
