Sanitary fittings such as kitchen and bathroom sinks, showers, bathtubs, toilet pots, are most frequently used items in every home. Therefore, it is important to keep these areas looking clean and bacteria free. Choosing the right type of sanitary sealant is the first important step in avoiding unappealing joints.
How to choose a right sanitary sealant
There are many different types of sanitary sealants and it is not always easy to understand how these products differ from each other and which one to choose for the task at hand.
A good sanitary sealant needs to provide a seal that is not only waterproof, but also:
On top of the factors listed above, when selecting a sanitary sealant, it is important to check the products compatibility with materials to be sealed. Most commonly, acetoxy or neutral silicones are used for sanitary sealing. The main difference between these two types of sealants is that neutral silicone, such as Penosil Kitchen & Bath Fresh Silicone, can be used for sealing unvarnished metals and natural stone surfaces (marble or granite worktops).
On the other hand, acetoxy silicones, such as Penosil No Mould Silicone, have an advantage when it comes to resistance to fungi and anti-ageing properties. One additional advantage of using acetoxy silicone becomes apparent in glass-to-glass joints, for example sealing glass partition walls- acetoxy colourless silicone is significantly more transparent when compared to similar neutral silicone.
It is worth to point out that, due to silicones chemical properties, it cannot be painted. Therefore, it is recommended to choose a silicone with a correct colour, that matches the sealed surfaces, from the start. Silicones can be bought in a large variety of colours.
Making sure you are using the right sanitary sealant, applying it correctly and looking after it regularly guarantees crisp and clean sanitary joints for many years to come.
