Eco-friendly, silicone, acetic, anti-mould organic sealant with a high level of elasticity for expansion-deformation joints, ideal for use in GreenBuilding. Solvent-free, safeguards the health of operators.

Fugabella Eco Silicone develops a high degree of adhesion to non-absorbent surfaces, guaranteeing the integrity and watertightness of ceramic coverings subject to deformation.

Product Strengths

  • Walls and floors not subject to heavy traffic, for internal and external use
  • Ideal for swimming pools and for permanent contact with water
  • Resistant to freezing
  • High chromatic stability
  • Available in the 28-colour Fugabella Eco range
  • Suitable to seal porcelain and ceramic tiles

Area of Use

Use

Elastic, waterproof sealing of expansion and connection joints on:

  • Porcelain tiles, low thickness slabs, ceramic tiles, klinker, cotto, glass and ceramic mosaic, of all types and formats
  • Bathroom fittings, showers
  • Metal doors and windows
  • Glass and fibreglass

For internal and external use, including environments subject to freezing, on fractionizing, expansion and connection joints in tile coverings on balconies, terraces, internal floors, aquariums and swimming pools.

Do not use

On natural stone, cement-based substrates, rubber, plastic and bituminous components or materials that weep oils, solvents and plasticizers. In the realisation of joints subject to abrasion. For facades.

Preparation of substrates

The sides of the joints to be sealed must be perfectly dry, clean and free from any traces of grease, dust or rust. Remove all flaky or loose parts and carefully remove rust from metals. When preparing visible joints, and in order to achieve a clean sealing line, the user should cover the edges with protective masking using normal adhesive tape.

Preparation

Fugabella Eco Silicone is ready-to-use. After cutting the conical nozzle of the cartridge, cut the spout at an angle of 45° to suit the width of the seal to be realized and screw it onto the cartridge. Then insert the tube of silicone into the appropriate manual or air-powered applicator gun, start sealant extrusion and fill the joint.

Application

Areas close to joints must be protected with masking tape to prevent substrates from being contaminated and to ensure even sealing. Remove masking tape immediately after smoothing the sealant. Make sure the silicone has been compacted deep into the joints to ensure optimum adhesion. To achieve a perfect finish, pass a metal or plastic spreader soaked in soapy water over the surface in one, continual movement if possible. For long-lasting sealing, capable of withstanding expansion and contraction stress, the following conditions are necessary:

  1. The joint is applied so that movement will not exceed 25% of joint width
  2. The ratio between width and sealant depth is between 1 and 2 
  3. The sealant adheres only to the sides of the joint and not to the substrate. Use Fugabella® Joint polyethylene foam sub-joint layer to adapt depth and prevent adhesion to the substrate.

Cleaning

Residual traces of sealant can be removed with common solvents such as toluene or petrol. Once hardened, Fugabella Eco Silicone can only be removed by mechanical means.
