The sealant is in the form of soft paste with a thixotropic consistency that is easy to apply on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. It hardens at room temperature thanks to the moisture present in the surrounding air and forms a flexible seal that allows joints to expand and contract by up to 20% of their original size. AC 400 Mould Resistant offers resistance to all types of weather conditions, industrial surroundings, thermal shocks, immersion in water and exposure to damp environments. It adheres strongly to glass, ceramic, painted surfaces and certain types of plastic without the use of a primer.
Field of Application
AC 400 Mould Resistant is used to make watertight seals in joints and gaps between similar and different types of building materials, including those permanently exposed to damp conditions. Once polymerization has taken place, it forms a perfect, flexible seal which adheres well to glass, ceramic and painted metal surfaces and is highly resistant to the formation of surface mould.
It is used for:
· Mould resistant seals in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms and damp environments.
· Sealing sanitary fittings, bath-tubs, shower booths and saunas.
· Sealing greenhouses.
· Sealing U profile glass (U-glass).
· Sealing between glass and window frames.
· Sealing air and water vents.
COVERAGE / CONSUMPTION
Preparation of substrate
Surfaces to be sealed must be dry, de-greased, solid and free of dust, loose parts, oil, grease, wax, old paintwork and rust on metal surfaces. We recommend applying masking tape along the edges of the joint in order to avoid the sealant seeping out of the joint and to get a more attractive finish.
Preparing the product
Ready to be used.
Applying the product
Insert the cartridge in an extrusion gun, cut off the tip of the cartridge, screw on the extrusion nozzle, trim the nozzle at an angle of 45° and according to the extruded width required and squeeze out the product in a continuous flow into the joint while trying to avoid air entering the joint. Immediately after applying the sealant, smooth over the surface before it hardens with a spatula wetted with soap and water. Remove the masking tape immediately after smoothing over the sealant
