Pecora 898 NST mildew resistant silicone sealant is used for sealing the perimeters of fixtures of bathroom, lavatory, kitchen and other hygienic facilities. It is also used to reset and/or re-grout ceramic tile. Pecora 898 NST Silicone is a one-part, very low odor, neutral-curing silicone expressly developed for those interior applications requiring a high degree of cleanliness, freedom from bacterial growth and an appearance complimentary to adjacent surfaces. Pecora 898 adheres extremely well to glass, plastics, ceramic tile, glazed pottery, natural or cultured marble, porcelain, enamel, metals and painted wood.
Because of its neutral-curing chemistry, Pecora 898 does not have the permeating acetic acid (vinegar) odor of many other silicone sealants that is so objectionable, especially in living quarters or confined areas. Pecora 898 remains permanently flexible at all temperatures and does not shrink, crack, crumble or dry out. It will not sag or slump in vertical joints in the hottest weather. It resists staining, spotting and color change. Pecora 898 is both mold and mildew resistant even under prolonged hot and humid environments. It is unaffected by free steam and is noncorrosive to copper, brass or zinc alloys.
