we has one of the best selections of Aquamate Sealant online and all below the standard RRP.
Not only is Aqua Mate high modulus it is also a reactive curing silicone sealant specifically formulated for fish tank/aquarium manufacture. This means that it remains permanently flexible and forms a watertight seal against most surfaces with a low dirt accumulation.
Not only will the waterproof seal withstand continuous water immersion over a long period of time, it is also free from fungicide and solvents, so it won’t harm fish when it’s cured.
Other benefits of Aquamate sealant include:
Fast curing formula gives extremely high early strengths and is tack free in one hour
Extremely low dirt pickup
If you’re applying Aquamate sealant to your fish tank, we recommend ensuring all surfaces are dry, clean and free from any flaky surface coatings. If you have any leftover sealant or mastic joints on your fish tank, make sure to remove before you apply your new sealant.
