Mapesil AC is a solvent-free, acetic-crosslinking, mildew resistant silicone sealant suitable for sealing glass, ceramic and anodised aluminium. It can be used internally and externally for sealing expansion and movement joints on horizontal and vertical surfaces. It forms a perfectly elastic gasket between different elements in building, mechanical engineering, ship-building and automotive manufacturing, making it suitable for use in bathrooms, kitchens, swimming pools and many other construction projects.
All the surfaces to receive the sealant must be dry solid and free from dust and loose particles, oils, grease, wax, old paint and rust. In order that the seal can carry out its function, provision must be made for it to elongate and compress freely.
Mapesil AC is packed in cartridges of 310 ml; to use, cut the cartridge above the end of the thread and screw on the nozzle, which should be cut at 45° to produce a hole corresponding to the size of the joint. Insert the cartridge into the gun and extrude the sealant. The surface of Mapesil AC must be finished off with a damp tool, preferably moistened with soapy water, before a superficial film has formed.
Mapesil AC is a one component, acetic crosslinking, solvent-free silicone sealant. It is a thixotropic paste which is easily trowel-able both horizontally and vertically. It crosslinks following exposure to atmospheric humidity at ambient temperatures, and forms an elastic product with following properties:
Seals remain unchanged even after many years exposure to climatic extremes, industrial pollution, sudden temperature changes and immersion in water
Excellent bonding to glass, ceramic and anodised aluminium
Waterproof and permeable to vapour
Resistant to chemical agents
Flexible down to -40°C and resistant to temperatures at +180°C
In compliance with ISO 11600 norm, it is classified as F-25-LM.
