UNIGUM SANITARY PUTTY
UNIGUM is a non-hardening, synthetic rubber compound, and does not contain solvents of any kind.
UNIGUM is primarily applied for the installation of lavatory bowls and kitchen drains plus the implant of steel kitchen sinks. However, this compound is also used for a wide range of other purposes that require a flexible, strongly adhesive rubber mastic. UNIGUM is therefore also applied for outdoor sealing of gutters, drain pipes and roofings. UNIGUM's good adherence properties also makes it suitable for such different materials as metal, wood, glass, concrete, plastic etc.

Generally: Clean the bearing surfaces carefully. Knead UNIGUM before using. Installation of sanitary arrangements: Fill about half up the gab between the spout and the muff with simple jointing material (possibly flax/hemp). Unroll UNIGUM in a thickness equal to the distance between spout and muff. Put UNIGUM in the gab - be careful of a smooth filling - and press well the mastic for each 1-2 cm in the height. Press towards the sides. Fill up a little over the edge of the muff and squeeze together. Cut off the surface with a knife. Implant of steel kitchen sinks: Unroll UNIGUM in a thickness of 6-8mm. Pres lightly UNIGUM under the edge of the steel kitchen sink. Clamp the kitchen sink to the tabletop. Odd rubber compound which is squeezed out between kitchen sink and tabletop should be wiped away easily with a knife or a spartle. Contrary to silicone UNIGUM is non-hardening, for which reason the kitchen sink afterwards can be lifted up without any problems (in connection with service, repair or renewal) without any risk for damaging the tabletop.
