The perfect joint

Whether it’s in the kitchen, bathroom or on the ground – water-tight joints are crucial for many transitions, such as those between the wall and ground or around the sink, bathtub or shower. This is no problem for our permanently elastic silicone joints, provided they are done properly, of course.

We’ll show you how to achieve this in just nine steps!

How to get the perfect joint:

1. The right silicone for the sub-surface

beko’s neutral-cure Silicone pro4 is suitable for most applications.

For plumbing systems, we recommend using Silicon PSS, beko’s premium sanitary silicone, alongside Silicone pro4.

3. Clean the sub-surface

beko Allclean cleans, removes grease and dries immediately.

This helps you to ensure that the holding surface is clean, dry and free from grease.

4. Apply backfill material

Apply the beko backfill material along the joint width to avoid a three-point adhesion.

5. Apply primer

Certain sub-surfaces (e.g. acrylic tubs) “need to be prepared with beko Silicone Primer”.

6. Apply silicone

Now it’s time to apply the beko Silicone pro4 to the joint.

In general, the silicone should adhere at least 1 mm to the sub-surface on each side.

7. Apply smoothing agent

beko smoothing agent makes removing excess silicone easy and, unlike “rinse water”, it doesn’t attack the silicone.
