Top Tip on How to Seal a Shower or Bath

If you want to remove your old bathroom sealant and replace it with a new sealant for a fresh and professional finish, you’ve come to the right place. BT1 is the latest development in bathroom sealant and adhesive technology. BT1 was designed with bathroom applications in mind, making it the best sealant for sealing a shower or bath. You can even use it to bond shower panels without needing any extra mechanical fixings. Water-resistant, bacteria resistant and incredibly strong, you won’t find a better bathroom sealant on the market than BT1.

 

Does your bathroom sealant need replaced?

There are lots of signs that reveal whether your bathroom sealant needs replaced. Over time, most traditional silicone sealants will need replacing as they can develop black spots that can throw off the aesthetic of your once pristine bathroom. Not to mention the black spots that form on most sealants are a tell-tale sign that you’ve got a serious bacteria and mould problem in your bathroom.

Another clear sign that your sealant needs replacing is when it loses its adhesion and begins to detach from the surface of the shower or bath. When this happens, you’re left with possible water leaks. Water can also find its way beneath your tiles. The pressure of the water can then lead to your tiles lifting up, causing even more water damage over time. To fix this problem, you need to remove the old sealant and re-seal with an advanced bathroom adhesive such as BT1.

 

Using BT1 to seal a shower or bath

Our top tip on how to seal a shower or bath is to simply use BT1. With BT1, the daunting task of sealing a shower or bath becomes an easy one. When used correctly, BT1 ensures your bath and shower tray seals are watertight and free from mould, fungus, and bacteria. BT1 will not shrink or crack over time, which is a common problem with regular bathroom sealants. If you’re worried about not keeping the bead of BT1 sealant straight during the application, try using masking tape to help guide the application process.

Using the narrowest point of BT1’s nozzle, apply the sealant where required. You can use your finger to press the sealant further into the cracks and to help smooth the sealant. As the sealant dries, you can remove the masking tape. Sealing your bath or shower is easy with BT1 and the entire process shouldn’t take you too long. Once cured, BT1 will effectively reduce bacteria by up to 99.99%, which means you’ll never have to worry about black mould spots appearing and spreading on the surface of your sealant.

BT1 can be used for more than just sealing your bath or shower. It successfully bonds a range of materials including metals, woods, concrete, brickwork, glass, ceramics, uPVC, and fiberglass. BT1 even bonds with most plastics and you don’t have to wait for the area to dry wither. BT1 bonds even in wet conditions and forms highly durable compounds with high elasticity.
