Choosing the best shower sealant: What you need to know

Is the sealant around your shower falling apart? In that case, it’s time to get to work! All you need is the best shower sealant for the job. The good news is that UniBond offers a number of great sealants, so you can choose the exact right shower sealant.  

How to choose the best shower sealant

If the sealant around your sinks and showers is cracked, yellow or showing signs of mould, it’s time for a quick fix. With the right shower sealant you can get to work and give your bathroom a new lease of life.

For quick repair jobs,UniBond RE-NEW is the best shower sealant. With its silicone formula and built-in smoothing tool, repairing the sealant is easier and faster than ever before. You don’t even need to remove the old sealant, simply apply the new silicone shower sealant on top and you’re good to go!

Why silicone is the best shower sealant

Cracked, yellow or mouldy sealant can be fixed in no time with the right silicone shower sealant! Silicone has good elasticity and resistance, is easy to use and smooth, plus it’s waterproof and the end result looks nice and clean. Use any of the silicone sealants in the UniBond range of sanitary sealants for bigger jobs or UniBond’s RE-NEW Sealant for quick repairs.  

Shower sealant for shower doors

If you’ve decided to add a new shower door to your list of bathroom renovations, you will also need a good shower sealant! Tempered glass doors are easy to clean, and, when sealed properly, last for a long time. This is how to install or repair your shower door:

  1. Fit the shower door according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Apply silicone sealant vertically on the inside and outside, where the shower enclosure touches the tiled walls. Apply silicone sealant on the outside, but only where the shower enclosure meets the shower tray.
  3. Do not apply silicone sealant to the base of the inside of the shower enclosure. If sealant is applied, water may be trapped inside the frame. Sometimes this causes water to leak from joints in the frame and from around the base of the glass.
