Well worth the cost.

" I have used silicone sealant on our shower tray joint before, but found that black mould, and ultimately leaks, were a problem after quite a short period. I bought the DOW CORNING 785 on the strength of previous reviews and I am pleased with it's easier application, and (although only time will tell) anti-bacterial properties. The product has good adhesion and it's easy to get a smooth finish. Well worth the extra cost over cheaper silicone and clearly better value in the long run! "

" Becoming a homeowner two years ago meant I had to figure out how to deal with 'leaky' seals on baths/sinks and the like. And for two years ive been buying the wrong stuff.
This stuff however, is without doubt the beat sealant ive used, and great value. Dont even bother looking around at anything else. If you're reading this review you've already found what you're looking for. "

" am not in the construction trade but i am a keen diy(er). I had a leak around my bath and needed some sealent. After reading the reviews i made my mind up and the product certainly lived up to its name. Amazing price, easy to spread and so strong and flexible. Great product, great price. "

" After doing a bit of online research about bathroom sealant I was directed towards this stuff. The reviews on this site can be trusted. This stuff is very good. Brilliant flow for easy application and smoothed correctly will give a brilliant finish. Can't really comment on the mould resistant claims but on previous use in a shower there were no signs of wear after more than a year. "

" Having used various silicone sealants over the years I can only say this is the best I have used. It smoothed well after application and I didn't really notice any odour that other sealants have. And as regards price this is about half that of other 'branded' sealants so for me a win win win situation. "

" When you want to do the job once and know it's going to last use Dow Corning. The anti bac really helps stop that mould forming around the bath and shower tray! Pay that little bit more now and save yourself time and money in the long term! "

Quality branded product

" When sealing shower trays only a quality product will do. This is one situation where I would not gamble on a budget brand. Dow Corning have been silicon product leaders for decades. The job in question needs to last for years ahead, and I know from experience that Dow Corning 785 will do the job. I have utter confidence in the product. I have used before and will use again and again. Best product on the market and the Screwfix offer price at the moment is good value. "

The Rolls Royce of sealants
6 Nov 2015
By
, Wiltshire
" As recommended by many professionals (and this keen amateur) this product is well worth paying a little extra for. While I have only just applied it and so can not vouch for its long-term mould resistance, it was a dream to apply, with excess material being easy to remove with an alcohol-based decorating wipe. Also nice to know that my children will not be contracting 'salmonella, E.coli or MRSA' while licking the bath surround.
Great stuff.
Tips for siliconing a bath:
Fill the bath with water and let it settle for a couple of hours - especially if it is a new installation, otherwise the silicone may stretch and crack when used for the first time. Try not to fall in the water while stretching over to apply the silicone!
Smooth with a finger (preferably your own) dipped in white spirit.

Instantly waterproof!!
29 Oct 2015
By
, Gosport
" This sealant is seriously understated, I was worried when some residual water from a rag was spilled on it after application, I left it there and just 2 hours later we were having showers! The application is smooth with a gloss white finish. Miles ahead of the 99p sealants I've used in the past. "
