Repairing the silicone seal between the bath and the tiled wall
Selleys Wet area is a specially designed silicone for use in bathrooms where a
joint is going to get wet but without being immersed in water.
Kevin is preparing to repair the gap between the bath and the tiles. He has
removed the old silicone and the bath and the tiles are now clean.
- Firstly to ensure a clean professional finish it is best to mask either side
of the joint to be filled with masking tape allowing a couple of millimetres of
both bath and tiles to be exposed for the sealant to adhere to. We used Selleys
blue masking tape designed for the job.
- Apply the Selleys Wet Area silicone by pushing the tube nozzle allowing ample
sealant to enter the gap joint. When the run is complete use a wet finger and
smooth and press the sealant into the joint leaving a smooth cove finish with
any excess spread onto the masking tape.
- Before the sealant gets a skin remove the masking tape and the job is done.
Remember that in other corners of your bathroom use Selleys No More Gaps
Bathroom instead as it is paintable unlike Wet Area which is not paintable
