The SCS 1700 is a one-component, acetoxy silicone sealant capable of resisting everything from humidity to mold to extreme weather. It’s the perfect choice for wet or warm environments if you need something reliable and long-lasting.
The silicone is resistant to both heat and water, and the addition of fungicide adds an extra layer of protection, giving the capability to fight off mold and mildew.
The paste is suitable for application in extreme environments, too – as long as the temperature is between 40°F and 122°F, you won’t be hindered. Even better, the low-sag formula means you can use the SCS1700 for a variety of vertical, horizontal, and overhead surfaces. After application, you can wait in peace knowing the paste will stay in place until it’s fully cured.
When cured, the sealant will remain flexible in temperatures as low as -55°F or as high as 300°F thanks to its impressive elasticity, and it can even withstand up to 400°F in short bursts. There’s also great movement capability; it can extend or compress by up to 25%.
As a one-component sealant, preparation is easy and usage is general purpose. It combines well with any of the following: glass; porcelain; tiles; stainless steel; plastics; glazed surfaces; imitation marble; aluminum, and composite materials.
Of course, the competitive advantage of the SCS1700 Sanitary is areas that frequently come into contact with heat, water, and mildew. That’s why customers often choose it for projects like:
- Swimming pool facilities
- Locker rooms
- Grouting and bedding ceramic tiles
- Composite materials
There are three colors to choose from –white, almond, and translucent. You can buy the sealant in a package of 24 units, each of which has a 10.1fl oz cartridge with a removable nozzle. Since the cartridge nozzle is removable, you can ensure a constant bead size by transferring the nozzle from one cartridge to the next.
Failure to comply with industry regulation isn’t an issue you need to worry about either. The product meets the standards of the American Society for Testing & Materials International, U.S. Federal Specifications, and Canadian General Standards Board. With a low concentration of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), you won’t have to compromise environmental responsibility or risk anyone’s health.
