Also ideal for sealing facades with ceramic tiles as the product does not attract dirt.
Alfix M-Silicone retains elasticity and produces a long life weather- and waterproof joint resistant to mildew (sanitary type).

How to use

Surfaces

Surface preparation

Surfaces should be clean and dry and free from dust, grease and oil.
For degreasing use acetone or ethanol.
Shining metals or plastics should be sanded.
For sealing tiled surfaces, joints should be clean down to original substrate.
Deep joints should be filled with a backing material, such as polyethylene foam, to support sealant and prevent adhering to bottom of the joint.

How to use

 

Use masking tape to protect tiles.
Fill joints completely using appropriate gun. Finish off within 15 minutes by smoothing using a damp tool, such as smoothing kit or joint nail.
Remove any masking tape immediately after smoothing.
