Mapesil AC Jasmine (130) Silicone
About this deal
Excellent durability. Seals remain unchanged even after many years exposure to climatic extremes, industrial pollution, sudden temperature changes and immersion in water; Mapei Ultracolor Plus creates water repellent grout joints that have excellent colour uniformity. All colours are resistant to UV rays and atmospheric agents.
Where Mapei Mapesil AC is to be applied in areas of continuous immersion, i.e. inside a swimming pool tank, the joints must be primed using Mapei Primer FD. Expansion and movement joints on walls and floors must never be filled with Mapei Ultracolor Plus. Use a suitable flexible sealant from the MAPEI range.Mapei Ultracolor Plus is suitable for grouting walls and floors in areas that are subject to intense traffic, such as shopping centres, airports, restaurants and other public spaces. It is also suitable for residential use in all areas, such as facades, balconies, terraces and swimming pools. When Mapei Mapesil LM is exposed to the air, the surrounding humidity sets off the cure reaction and the sealant becomes flexible. The surrounding temperature only has a small impact on the cure rate of Mapei Mapesil LM, while the level of humidity in the surrounding air has the most influence. We highly recommend that the product is never applied if the temperature is below 0°C. Application of Mapei Primer FD: Where the use of Primer FD is necessary, it must be applied with a small brush onto the appropriate areas of the joints and left to dry for several minutes to allow the solvent to evaporate. Then apply Mapei Mapesil AC Silicone.
Mapei Mapesil AC Silicone is a one-component, acetic crosslinking, solvent-free silicone sealant, available coloured or transparent. It is a thixotropic paste which is easily trowellable both horizontally and vertically. Mapei Mapesil AC Silicone crosslinks following exposure to atmospheric humidity at ambient temperatures, and forms an elastic product with following properties: Mapei Ultracolor Plus is available in 2kg and 5kg bags, in the following colours: Please note, only some colours are available in 2kg bags. Applying the grout: Fill the joints with the Mapei Ultracolor Plus mix using a special MAPEI grout float or rubber squeegee, without leaving any gaps or steps. Remove any excess of Mapei Ultracolor Plus from the surface, by moving the float diagonally to the joints while the mix is still fresh. Thanks to the low modulus of elasticity of Mapei Mapesil LM Silicone, it is suitable for sealing internal and external fillet and expansion joints, including those subject to high levels of movement when in service, between: Pre-fabricated panels, window/door fittings and wall surrounds, pipe-work and vertical walls, similar and/or different types of coating materials. It is also suitable for sealing joints in doors with limited pedestrian traffic. Finishing: When the mix loses its plasticity and becomes opaque, which usually takes place after 15-30 minutes, clean off the excess Ultracolor Plus with a hard, damp sponge (e.g. a MAPEI sponge), working in a diagonal direction to the joints. Rinse the sponge frequently, using two different containers of water: one to remove the excess mix from the sponge, and the other, containing clean water, to rinse the sponge. This operation may also be carried out with a machine with a sponge belt or rotating disc. When the mix is partially set, after 50-60 minutes, a damp Scotch-Brite® sponge or an abrasive felt disc may be passed over the joints to even out the surface.Forming a perfectly elastic gasket between different elements in building, mechanical engineering, ship-building, automobile manufacturing, etc. To control the depth of the joint and to prevent Mapei Mapesil AC Silicone from adhering to the base, the bottom of the joint should be filled with a sized Mapefoam, a polyethylene cord Mapei Mapesil LM is particularly suitable for surfaces sensitive to acids on which conventional neutral or acid sealants normally provoke changes in colour or staining of the substrate.
Mapei Mapesil LM Silicone Sealant is a neutral, mould-resistant silicone sealant with very low emission level of volatile organic compounds (VOC), for use with natural stone and marble. Sealing joints in wall and floor coverings of ceramic and cement, provided they are not subject to heavy abrasion. Sealing joints between sinks or sanitary ware and ceramic tiles in kitchens, bathrooms and showers with colours coordinated with the grouts. Make sure your tiling project’s joints and seals stand up to everyday wear and tear with Mapesil, an acetic-crosslinking silicone sealant from the world’s leading manufacturer of tiling grout, adhesives and sealing products, Mapei.Mapei Ultracolor Plus does not contain Portland cement and must not be mixed with gypsum or other hydraulic binders; never add water to the mix once it has started to set.
