Triplesil ® GP

One-component, acid-curing, silicone sealant for general purpose sealing in do-it-yourself applications. It cures at room temperature under the action of atmospheric moisture to give a permanently flexible silicone rubber.

– suitable for use in sanitary areas
– non-sag
– ready gunnability at low (+ 5 °C) and high (+ 40 °C) temperatures
– flexible at low (- 40 °C) and high temperatures (+ 100 °C)
– rapid cross-linking: quickly becomes tack-free
– adheres excellently to glass, vitrified surfaces, ceramic tiles, many plastics and most paints

The substrate areas that will be in contact with the sealant must be clean, dry and free of all loose material such as dust, dirt, rust, oil and other contaminants. Non-porous substrates should be cleaned with a solvent and a clean, lintfree, cotton cloth. Remove residual solvent before it evaporates with a fresh clean, dry cloth.

– DIY applications (car, boat, caravan, house), in particular in areas with high humidity.
– Should not be used on substrates such as marble, concrete, fibrous cement, and mortar, as the product releases acetic acid during vulcanization.
– Should not be used in contact with metals such as lead, copper, brass or zinc due to corrosion. – Should not be used in contact with prestressed
polyacrylate elements as it may cause stress cracking.
– May be discolored in contact with some organic elastomers, e.g. EPDM, APTK and neoprene.
– must not be used for sealing of aquaria.
– It is not recommended for use on natural stone, such as marble, granite, quartzite, as it can cause staining.
– Is not recommended for structural glazing bonding.

Triplesil ® GP exhibits excellent primerless adhesion to most material used for sanitary application, e.g. glass, tiles, ceramics, enamel, glazed tiles and clinker; varnished or painted wood; and some plastics. Users must carry out their own tests due to the
great variety of substances. The adhesion can be improved in many cases by pretreatment of the substrates with a primer.
