EVERBUILD GENERAL PURPOSE SILICONE is a Multi-Purpose acetoxy cure silicone sealant that cures quickly to provide a permanently flexible, high strength waterproof seal. It contains a powerful anti-fungicide to prevent mould growth.
Benefits · Permanently flexible. · Anti-fungal formula - prevents mould growth. · Quick curing - low dirt pick up. · Low viscosity for fast application Areas for Use · Sealing glass to glass. · Sealing glass to aluminium and metal sealing. · Sealing around baths, showers, basins and other sanitary ware. ·
As an adhesive for fixing Pvcu trims, cladding and panels. · Sealing around worktops and laminates. · Cap glazing to metal, timber and Pvcu window frames, and pointing around window and door Frames. · For aluminium gutter sealing. · General draught proofing. Surface Preparation All surfaces must be clean, dry and dust free.
All loose or flaking surface coatings, and old sealant and mastic joints, should be removed before application. Glass, metal and aluminum should be cleaned with a proprietary solvent cleaner prior to application for optimum adhesion. Porous surfaces may require priming - a small area should be tested first.
Application Reference should be made to the recommended joint ratios. If necessary reduce joint depth using FILL AND FIX Expanding Foam, or Joint backer rod. Furthermore, ensure that the joint design only permits adhesion to two surfaces, as three sided adhesion will impair flexibility. Smooth down within 10 minutes of application. To ensure a proper bond, always smooth the sealant down using a spatula or piece of wood wetted with a soap and water solution. An improved appearance can be achieved by placing masking tape to both sides of the joint and removing within 5 minutes of application.
