The easiest way to seal around a bath is to use a high-quality bathroom sealant that can resist mould and bacteria from growing on its surface.

Benefits of using BT1 bathroom sealant
BT1 is ideal for sealing around a bath because it has been specifically designed for bathroom applications. It is the ultimate bathroom sealant and adhesive because it has a unique resistance to mould and fungal infestation. This means that mould cannot form on the surface of the sealant, which is a common problem experienced with poor quality sealants. Achieving and maintaining a clean and healthy bathroom environment has never been easier. Not to mention, BT1 is an incredibly strong and powerful sealant, creating long-lasting bonds that can stand the test of time. It’s perfect for all applications and replaces the need for sanitary silicone sealants and silicone sealants in general, which are known to contain a lot of harsh and toxic chemicals.
As a universal sealant, BT1 bonds to most substrates and materials. This includes woods, metals, brickwork, tiles, glass, ceramics, concrete, and most plastics. Better yet, it can bond all of these materials and more even in wet conditions without attacking the synthetic material.
Why should you seal your bath?
If the sealant around your bath has worn down or your bath is unsealed, water can drip down where the bath meets the wall. Over time, the accumulation of water and excess moisture between the bath and wall can cause mould and rotting. In serious cases, the dripping water can cause flooding and damage to floors, walls, and ceilings. If you want to avoid all of this, you must seal around your bath using a high-quality water-resistant bathroom sealant.
How to seal a bath
You can seal a bath very easily with BT1 because of the unique design of both the cartridge and the formula. Make sure that your BT1 cartridge has been stored at room temperature before use. When you’re ready to seal the bath, you can use a traditional skeleton or powered gun. Cut the cartridge at the nose and then follow up by snipping the nozzle at the desired dimensions.
For best results, make sure that you apply the BT1 bathroom sealant on a clean, degreased surface. The skeleton or powered gun acts like a pump to help you squeeze the sealant out of the tube. Keep the application as even as possible as you run the nozzle of the cartridge along the gap between the bath and the wall. Finish off the seal with Multisolve for a smooth and clean finish.
You should now be left with a perfectly sealed bathtub, free from leaks, rot, and possible mould infestation!
