Preparation of substrate

The joint sides must be dry, structurally sound and free from dust and other contamination. Remove oil stains and grease from non-absorbent substrates with PCI Univerdünner. Fill deep joints with closed-cell polyethylene backer rod. Be careful not to damage the backer rod during the application. A three-sided adhesion of the sealant to the bottom of the joint must be avoided. Backer rods containing bitumen or tar are not allowed to be used.

Application procedure

  1. All regular hand-operated and airoperated caulking guns (e.g. from Karl Dahm) are suitable for the application of PCI Silcofug E.
  2. Cut off tip of threaded nipple, screw on nozzle and cut off at an angle corresponding to the joint width. Fit cartridge into the caulking gun.
  3. Gun PCI Silcofug E into the joint using positive pressure to ensure full contact and adhesion. Tool to a bevel in corner joints.
  4. Smooth joint sealant before a skin forms using a suitable joint-shaping tool moistened with PCI Glättmittel. A skin forms within a few minutes. Work may be interrupted because new PCI Silcofug E perfectly bonds to a material which has already cured.

Please note:

  • Paint does not bond to PCI Silcofug E (cf. IVD leaflet no. 12 - Overpaintability of movement-compensating joint sealants in building construction).
  • PCI Silcofug E is not suitable for floor joints subject to heavy mechanical loads.
  • Use PCI Carraferm for natural stone.
  • The elastic sealing of movement joints and connection joints with PCI Silcofug E is not a substitute for required sealing measures in the substrate structure.
  • See the technical data sheet no. 201 - PCI Elastoprimer for details on the application of PCI Elastoprimer 150 and 165.
  • We recommend to test adhesion to and compatibility with lacquered and plastic substrates beforehand.
  • Staining and bonding problems may occur in contact with mastic asphalt screeds.
  • PCI Silcofug E might discolour when using cleaning agents and disinfectants which separate iodine.
  • Minor colour variations are possible, it is therefore recommended to use the same batch number for the same project.
  • Opened cartridges can be stored several days if the nozzle is plugged with some sealant. Remove the cured sealant from the nozzle before any further application.
  • Although PCI Silcofug E contains fungicides, the joints should be cleaned with appropriate household cleaners and/or disinfectants in sanitary areas to prevent mould and mildew growth.
  • Suitable tools are available e.g. from Karl Dahm Ludwigstr. 5 83358 Seebruck/Germany.
  • Remove sealant spills with PCI Univerdünner while the material is still uncured. Cured sealant can only be removed by mechanical scraping.

hi do you do delivery to Perth Western Australia 6110 and if so how much. Thanks

Hello,

How many of them would you like to buy? When do you need this shower tray? This is a new product in our store and we do not have it in stock yet, so the delivery of this product takes longer because it is produced only after placing the order. Production and delivery can take up to 25 days.

Please, let us know how many of them you require and we will prepare a delivery quote.

Kind regards

Do you sell the tanking liquid separately?

Hello,

Yes, tanking liquid is available separately, however it's less cost efficient. Waterproofing kit is available at comparable price and contains materials that you will probably need to use anyway.

There's special category in our store: Tanking liquid.

I am happy to assist if you have any further questions.

Kin regards

Hi Andrea,

how long after manufacture can i use it. I've got 2 bags that i purchased from you last august 1 batch number 21/18. and 1 29/18. thanks

Dear Daniel,

Shelf life of the Nanofug Premium is 12 months, therefore as long as it's not been opened it can still be used within several months.

If the bags have been opened they are probably no longer usable and you will need to supply a new product.

I will be happy to assist if you have any questions.

Kind regards

We have the wiper tanking kit and have the instructions for the liquid and primer but nothing that says how the sealing tape/membrane is applied to this layer ? Ie: do we need to let it tac or does it go straight onto the tanking liquid ?Any advise ...

Dear Tracey,

Sealing membrane should be applied after applying first layer of tanking liquid. It works as a great adhesive to stick sealing membrane. If the first layer is already dry, you can use tile adhesive which also works well.

Everything should be covered with another tanking liquid layer afterwards.

Kind regards

How do I determine the size of waterproofing kit I might need?

Dear Sean,

Joints between the tray and rest of the floor and the walls is the most important part that needs to be sealed off 3 m2˛ of waterproofing kit is enough for that, should also last to cover the tray itself with it as well with 2 coats.

If you wanted to waterproof more space, maybe even entire floor, then you should go for 6 m2˛.

I will be happy to help if you have any questions.

Kind regards
