Low emission silicone sealants: elastic and environmentally compatible
When laying tiles, there are a large number of points to be considered for the protection of the building fabric and the creation of a high-quality interior climate. Not only the selection of the tile adhesive and the waterproofing compound but also the joint material may have a considerable impact on the final result.
Professional builders know that not every joint can simply be filled with grout. Expansion, edge and connecting joints need to be sealed with silicone in order to allow material expansion and contraction. It is mainly the durably elastic properties of silicone that make it an ideal sealant for joints of this type. PCI recommends the use of low-emission silicone which is elastic and environmentally compatible and ensures ideal safety and hygiene properties.
