Use Silicone Sealant, Here’s Why You Should


Silicone sealant– one of the most trusted adhesive types on the market, is flexible, and used to repair cracked surfaces and to top it off, it’s a one-time application lasting anywhere from 10 to 20 years. In fact, these strong sealants are well known to provide a waterproof seal that’s stronger than conventional grouting. 

Plus, it’s a great way to seal the gaps and cracks of a home property. It has the ability to solidify many materials, including glass, concrete and metal. 

The silicone sealant can expand and contract with these materials without breaking down or losing its strength over time. This makes it ideal for using in areas where there is a lot of movement or temperature change, such as around doors and windows.

What is it made of?

The silicone sealant consists of polydimethylsiloxane, a type of silicone polymer. Silicone polymers are usually solid at room temperatures but they become flexible as the temperatures go higher, therefore capable of using in places where extreme heat is under operation.

Types of silicone sealants

  • Liquid Silicone Sealant

Like any other type of paint or varnish, the liquid silicone sealant is applied, except that it requires more coats than traditional paints; considering each coat is allowed to dry off before applying another layer. 

Liquid silicone has a very thick consistency which can become harder to apply smoothly without runs that show up later on. It also tends to crack over time due to expansion and contraction, making it less desirable than other silicone sealants.

  • Silicone Caulk

Caulk is available in different colours and textures, but it all serves the same purpose: filling in small gaps between surfaces to prevent water from seeping through cracks or holes. You may find caulks designed specifically for bathtubs or showers sealing grout lines in tile work.

  • Silicone Adhesive

This type of silicone works great on glueing two surfaces together, therefore, won’t move around anymore. It is suitable for fixing tiles on walls or floors but it doesn’t work well for bigger projects like replacing broken windows or shower heads because it doesn’t stick very well when there isn’t much surface area involved.

How Silicone Sealant can make your life easier?

  • Flexible and resistant to extreme temperatures

Silicone sealants won’t crack or break under stress like some other adhesives would (such as epoxy glue). You can use it in temperatures ranging from -60°F (-51°C) up to 450°F (232°C). It will not dry out or lose strength when exposed to sunlight either!

  • Long-lasting protection

When applied correctly, silicone sealants can provide protection for approximately 20 years, depending on the type of product you’re sealing. They are prone to survive exposure to UV light. Being resistant to abrasion and most chemicals, makes them an excellent choice for outdoor applications like swimming pools or other structures that may be exposed to harsh weather conditions over time.

  • Stops leaks and helps prevent air leakage in your building

It’s waterproof. Waterproofing will help you maintain a home’s value and make it easier to give off later on if needed. You won’t have problems with water seeping through cracks in the walls or any other part of your home.

Make life easier, more convenient, and more comfortable

Overall, installing the newest version of silicone is the most secure way to avoid future water damage because it works so well against both overheating and impact damage.
