High-elastic, one-component sealant on silicone rubber basis. Reacts and cures with atmospheric humidity. Neutral curing.
Available in grey.
Coverage: 3 - 4 m at a joint dimension of 10 x 10 mm.
Available in 300 ml cartridges.
Due to neutral curing, Alfix M-Silicon will not cause any colour alteration of acid-sensitive materials, such as natural stone and hence, the product is very suitable for marble, granite, travertine, etc.
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).
Residues from adhesive or grout should be removed down to original substrate. Before application in pools, bonding surfaces should be primed and joint widths range between 10 and 15 mm.

Bonding surfaces should be dry and clean. Vacuum and degrease with acetone or ethanol. Prefill deep joints with a suitable backing material, such as polyethylene foam backer rod, to obtain appropriate depth. At its maximum, joint depth should make up 50% of the joint width. The entire tile edge should be considered as bonding surface. Apply masking tape along tile edges to protect the tile surface. Apply Alfix P-Primer onto both bonding surfaces in an even coat and allow the primer to dry completely before commencing the work.
How to use
As soon as the primer is dry, fill the joints completely against the backing material with Alfix P-Silicon and finish the surface within 15 minutes using smoothing kit, wet wooden spatula, or joint nail. Remove any masking tape immediately after smoothing the joint.
