  • Dowsil 786 Food Safe Silicone Sealant

    £6.00

    APPLICATIONS

    DOWSIL 786 is one part, flexible; fast curing silicone rubber sealant specifically designed for the sealing of refrigeration units and areas where contact with food is likely. Therefore making it ideal for food

    HOW TO USE

    Surface Preparation

    Ensure that surfaces to be sealed are clean, dry, sound and grease-free. Clean with DOWSIL R40 Universal Cleaner or methylated spirits depending on the substrates to be sealed, and dry thoroughly with a clean, lint-free cloth before application of sealant.

    Note: When using any solvent, always provide adequate ventilation. Avoid heat, sparks and open flames. Observe and follow all precautions listed on the solvent container label. Above all, it is recommended that DOWSIL 786 is not applied to surfaces that are below 5°C.

    Masking

    Areas adjacent to the joints should be masked with tape to prevent contamination of the substrates and to ensure a neat sealant line. After that, masking tape should be removed immediately after tooling.

    Priming

    Primer is not required on most common nonporous substrates, including vitreous enamel, ceramics, porcelain, glazed tiles, etc. However, for some metals and plastics, priming is required. For more information, please refer to the technical data sheet attached or contact Dow Corning.

    Back-Up Materials

    Where back-up material is required closed cell polyethene backer rod is recommended. Low tack polyethene tape should be used in joints too shallow to allow the use of the backer rod.

    Finishing

    The joint should be tooled within 5 minutes of application to ensure good contact between the sealant and the substrate. Tooling of the sealant also gives a smooth, professional finish.

    Clean-Up

    The excess sealant may be cleaned off tools and non-porous surfaces while in an uncured state using DOWSIL R40 Universal Cleaner. The cured sealant may be removed with the aid of
    DOWSIL Silicone Sealant Remover, abrasion or other mechanical means. However, care should be taken not to damage plastic surfaces.

    LIMITATIONS

    DOWSIL 786 Silicone Sealant should not be applied to porous surfaces such as stone or concrete, or to easily corroded metals such as lead or copper. DOWSIL 786 should
    not be used against surfaces that bleed oils, plasticisers or solvents. Also, contact Geocel’s Technical Services Department for further advice on specific applications.

  • Dowsil C60 Low Modulus Silicone – Box of 20

    £78.40£79.80

    Dow Corning C60 Low Modulus Silicone Sealant is a one-part sealant, which has been specially developed for use by the sealant contractor. It has excellent adhesion to a range of porous and non-porous substrates. Such as PVCU, glass, anodized and painted aluminium, metal cladding, brickwork, painted and unpainted wood.

    HOW TO USE DOW CORNING C60

    Surface Preparation

    Ensure that surfaces to be sealed are clean, dry, sound and free from frost. Clean all joints of release agents, water repellents, laitance, dust, dirt, old sealants and other contaminants, which could impair adhesion.

    Non-porous surfaces should be cleaned by wiping with a suitable solvent such as DOW CORNING R40 Universal Cleaner on an oil and lint-free cloth. Porous substrates should be mechanically cleaned using a steel brush or any similar means.

    Masking

    Areas adjacent to the joints should be masked with tape to prevent contamination of the substrates and to ensure a neat sealant line. Masking tape should be removed immediately after.

    Priming

    No primer is required for PVC-U and most common construction substrates. However, a test placement before general use is always recommended. Also, please refer to the Dow Corning Primer Guide if unsure.

    Backing Materials

    Closed cell polyethene backer rod is recommended as a backup material to provide back pressure and avoid three-sided adhesion. This limits the sealant movement capability. Low tack tape should be used in joints too shallow to allow the use of the backer rod.

    Finishing

    The joint should be tooled within 5 minutes of application to ensure good contact between the sealant and the substrate. Tooling of the sealant also gives a smooth, professional finish.

    Clean-Up

    The excess sealant may be cleaned off tools and non-porous surfaces while in an uncured state using DOW CORNING R40. If the sealant is misapplied to porous substrates, it should be left until just cured, and then removed by cutting or other mechanical means.

    STORAGE

    DOW CORNING C60 Silicone Sealant should be stored in cool and dry conditions. When stored at or below 30° in the original unopened container. Also, DOW CORNING C60 Silicone Sealant has a shelf life of 12 months.

    LIMITATIONS

    – Should not be used in structural glazing or insulating glazing.
    – Do not use on bituminous substrates, substrates based on natural rubber or EPDM
    – Do not use in a confined space because the sealant requires atmospheric moisture to cure.
    – It is not recommended for use on submerged joints or in joints where abrasion will occur.
