About UK Planet® Sanitary Silicone SN-500, 310ml (White)
UK PLANET silicone SN-500 is a one-part, fast curing sealant, which in contact with atmospheric moisture forms a durable, flexible joint. It is unaffected by temperature extremes, UV – radiation, and maintains this resistance over many years. The UK PLANET silicone SN-500 contains agents against mould and fungus formation. It’s an excellent sealing and bonding caulk with very good adhesion to most surfaces, e.g. to glass, glazing tiles, ceramic, coated surfaces, wood and most plastics.
- Elastic caulking in glazing of window frames.
- Sealing of non-expansion joints and gaps.
- Sealing of shop windows, signs and cable ducts.
- Protection of polyurethane foams against UV – radiation.
- Sealing of bathtubs, wash-bowls, showers, drainboard sinks and other sanitary and water supply systems.
- Caulking and joining of ceramic tiles.
- Do-it-yourself applications.
Applying Internal Sanitary Silicone
Surface area must be clean, dry and free of dust, rust or loose parts of an old sealant or paint, grease and oil. Degrease surface with acetone or ethanol (glass, glaze, metals) or detergent (plastics). Dry the surface precisely.
Internal Sanitary Silicone does not require the use of a primer on most surfaces, but for specific surfaces it may be needed for increased adhesion. To apply, cut the cartridge outlet over the screw-thread. Then cut slanting the tip of applicator nozzle for gap width and screw onto the cartridge outlet.
Use a gun for cartridges to apply the silicone. Protect the surface adjacent to the gap using a masking tape. Even out the silicone joint with finger, cloth or smooth spatula dipped in soapy solution so as to decrease adhesion.
The excess of uncured silicone from hands, tools and other dirty surfaces should be removed, before its curing, by means of paper towel. After curing, silicone should be removed from hands by means of water with soap and from tools in a mechanic way or with silicone remover CSM 008.
