Sealing around a Bath is a problem that nearly everybody will encounter in their life time. The problem and the solution lie with the sealant. If the edge of your bath is unsealed, water can drip down between the bath and the wall and cause flooding, mould and rotting of the joists. Therefore sealing the gap between bath and wall is essential. The problem with conventional silicone sealant is that they are packed with solvents and they start to shrink while curing this is because the solvents are evaporating and over time they will eventually breakdown and crack then let water in. This will not happen when you seal around a bath with CT1 Sealant it has no solvents in it and is guaranteed never to shrink or crack it is also V.O.C Free.
There is only one product for sealing around a bath and it’s called CT1 Sealant. CT1 Sealant has been on the market for about 5 years it comes in seven different colours (Clear, White, Beige, Brown, Black, Oak and Grey). Before you use a sealant or our CT1 Sealant it is always good to clean any contaminants like oil and grease or old silicone that could prevent the CT1 Sealant from sealing so clean the area thoroughly with our other product called Multisolve.
How to seal around a bath? Apply the CT1 sealant with a sealant gun. A Sealant gun is basically a pump for squeezing sealant out of a tube. Loading the CT1 Sealant tube is easy, but the applicator nozzle needs cutting to size to allow CT1 Sealant to get out. Applying the CT1 Sealant to the surface is a matter of running the nozzle along the gap between wall and bath, pumping as you go.
The secret to a good looking result when you seal around a bath, is a smooth application, which takes a steady hand and putting a finish on the CT1 Sealant. This is best done using one of our other products called Multisolve. After you apply the product to seal around the bath spray the Multisolve on, Multisolve stops the CT1 sealant sticking to your hands and also makes it easy to tool the joint. Run your finger smoothly along the sealant bead to leave a flat even finish with no lumps and bumps. CT1 Sealant is antifungal sealant this is important because no dirt and germs can accumulate in your bath surround if there are no places for them to hide.
Instead of manually pumping when you seal around a bath, you can now buy the same CT1 Sealant in a pressurised container. As you push the nozzle to one side, the CT1 Sealant comes out automatically. This makes it really easy for awkward and tight areas were you cannot get a sealant gun in. And anyone who has had to remove old silicone sealant will know it’s a nightmare, Multisolve will remove it with ease safely.
