Great stuff
4 Aug 2014
By AndyK38
, York
"Bought this based on reviews. Very happy, seals well and sits quite quickly also. It does give off an odour but soon goes when dry (shows the power of the bacterial agent I suppose).
Would use again for definite.
Shower was available for use again some 4 hours later and seal looks good.

"Flows well and is easy to "work".
The No-Nonsense product is okay for general use but I tend to use this in shower cubicles and around baths. Top product!

Needed a sealant that worked..
29 Sep 2013
By Fussydiyer04
, Salisbury
"....after trying an easy smooth sealant ( recommended for power showers!) around the outside of my shower enclosure and finding it leaked badly,I needed something that would seal the shower but was going to give me a neat finish.
Thanks to the advice given re washing up liquid/water spray, the job was easier than expected...I was too liberal with the spray to start with and found that dipping the smoothing tool into the solution,running it along the bead,wiping off excess then re dipping the tool did the job.
First shower last night...no leaks...would recommend this product ever time.

Not drastic just mastik
23 Sep 2013
By MrPedantic
, Bracknell
"I used this to reseal the waste on my toilet as the seal had crumbled and was leaking heavily. It takes just 5 minutes before you can work the sealant (i.e. make it smooth) and a further hour for it to fully set depending on the quantity used. My only concern is the smell of the sealant which is noticeable but I think this is because I had to use quite a large quantity to do the job. Still it will suffice until I can find a more permanent solution."

Best sealant ever
30 Apr 2013
By John44
, Portsmouth
"I have used many types of sealant to seal baths and showers and nothing is as good as the Dow Corning 785. It really does stick and is really easy to tool, it also keeps its colour.
OK it may cost more than other brands but it is worth every penny, I use nothing else. A great finish is achieved by applying the bead then spraying it and the surrounding contact surfaces with soapy water solution then using a simple ice lolly stick draw the bead. The excess sealant does not stick to the adjacent areas because of the soapy water, it just stays on the stick! A great tip from a professional tiler!
PS Because it sticks so well ........ removing excess when dry is hard work so avoid leaving excess to dry.

"I have switched over to DC products on recommendation from colleague and have been very pleased with results. The extra cost is definitely seen in better usability and overall finish, giving confidence in long term reliability of joints.
Not all silicone is the same and you certainly get what you pay for!

THE ONLY SILICONE I WILL USE
16 Mar 2013
By BillDL
, Hamilton
"When it says "white", that's what this product is, not some semi-translucent hint of white that darker gaps show through. This product gives good filling and coverage, has the perfect curing time to make application and cleanup easy, and is a good compromise between strength and flexibility. The screwfix price, which is half what most other large DIY warehouses charge for the same product, makes it cheap enough to use for all jobs rather than choosing a "budget" sealant for some jobs and this "premium" one for others."

You get what you pay for

By RayP
, Epsom Surrey
"Having used several sanitary sealents over the years I still keep going back to DOW. I fitted out a bathroom four years ago and round the floor it was sealed with a named sealant but inside the shower unit the sealent then srtarted to peel,after about 6 months, then dod with Dow and still as good as new. The white is brilliant white and still looks great.
Worth he extra when you want that top finish.

"This silicon for me is always my first choice. I've used it lots of times and it always gives a great finish that lasts. Other makes have either been hard to get a good finish or haven't lasted . Totally recommended."
