UGL® Tub and Tile Caulk

UGL® Tub and Tile Caulk

The spaces where shower walls meet the tub are just a few of the areas in your bathroom susceptible to leaks and mildew buildup. Proper maintenance can help prevent this from happening. Use mildew-resistant UGL® Tub and Tile Caulk to seal those connections, waterproof around your sink, and more. Prevent water from creeping up, under or around tiles at joints between the tiles and tub or shower pan, or on joints where the walls meet. If not properly protected, tiles can loosen over time. This non-staining compound is easy to use, adheres securely to most building materials, and remains flexible over time. Enjoy a quick, easy cleanup with water.

Preparation

The opening to be sealed must be dry and free of moisture, dirt, grease, dust, soap film, and loose caulk*. Remove any soap film with rubbing alcohol.

Application

Apply only when air and surface temperatures are above 50°F. Place the spout-tip at an angle over the area to be sealed. Deep cracks (larger than .25” wide) should be filled to within .25” of the surface with a backing material like oakum prior to caulking. Start at the bottom of the area to be sealed and work up as the void is filled. Wipe off any excess caulk with a damp cloth before it dries (approximately 30 minutes). Note: be sure to knead the tube in your hand before applying.

Allow UGL® Tub & Tile Caulk to dry for 48-72 hours before using shower. Temperature and/or high humidity will extend the drying time. After the caulk is applied, wait one hour before painting with a latex paint. Wait overnight before painting with an oil-based paint. To reset a tile, apply UGL® Tub & Tile Caulk liberally at the center and at each corner. Place the tile firmly in the proper position. Clean tools with soap and water upon completion.
