Hey guys n gals,
I need recomendations for a product to seal around my bath.... I don;t
want to use mouldy old silicone.. any idea's?
What about this TeleSeal10 (www.teleseal.co.uk)? Looks good, has
anybody used it?
No personal experience of this item, but I have tried other glue-on upvc
hard and soft bath edge sealing strips. If TeleSeal have developed an
adhesive that withstands damp conditions then their system may well work,
but in my experience the adhesive on these glue-on strips fails eventually.
As for the TeleSeal being mould resistant, mould will grow anywhere where
there is damp and poor ventilation.
I have used Teleseal after trying everything to seal round a bath. The
problem I had was that the bath was flexing and this either dislocated any
plastic seal or split silicone. Because Teleseal is effectively 'telescopic'
the halves are fixed rigidly to the wall/bath and the seal absorbs the
flexing. The only challenge was fitting the corners as I am pretty handless
when it comes to making neat joins in plastic! After a few years the seal
was still mould free although the sealant used had gone slightly cream
rather than pure white. The bath has now gone, to be replaced by a shower
cubicle but the Teleseal was still strongly stuck when the bath and tiles
were ripped out.
Yes, it was expensive, but so was continually buying different tubes of
sealant to try and solve the problem.
Hope this helps.
