Bathroom sealing from hydrophon – fast and clean like no other

Again and again, moisture damage in the vicinity of bathrooms occurs due to missing or inadequate sealing. Through the supposedly impermeable tile covering, water vapour and spray water penetrate into the substrate, causing expensive damage to the fabric of the building. The corrosion of metallic building materials, the detachment of tiles and efflorescence on the surface are further consequences of inadequate bathroom sealing. Our composite seals allow you to play it safe in this respect. It takes only a little effort to make the whole bathroom watertight – quickly, cleanly and with no drying times.

Why sealing with silicone does not provide sufficient protection

The greatest risk potential for moisture damage in buildings lies in the movement joints around shower trays and bathtubs. Therefore you should pay more attention to these when waterproofing the bathroom. In the past, the areas to be sealed were simply smeared with silicone. This no longer suffices as a sole sealing measure.

The most common problem in bathroom sealing using this elastic compound is the formation of hidden silicone joint cracks. Within four years, the material loses much of its flexibility, making it no longer able to withstand the constant tensile and compressive loads. The process is accelerated by the action of organic substances such as skin and hair. As maintenance joints, silicone joints require annual inspection and must be renewed regularly. However, it cannot be ruled out that moisture may penetrate through tiny cracks that are invisible to the naked eye.

A simple, yet reliable solution to the problem is offered by our composite seals, which you apply directly when installing a shower or bathtub. They form a permanent invisible moisture barrier between the tiles and the substrate and keep water and moisture on the surface.

Advantages of hydrophon bathroom sealing at a glance

Our sealing systems consist of a sealing tape, sealing membranes, sealing corners with capillary protection and sealing cuffs for pipe penetrations and drainage. Optionally, you can add a sound insulation strip to the bathroom sealing.

The composite systems are optimally suited for sealing:

  • shower channels (linear drainage),
  • point drains in the screed or shower board,
  • bathtubs and shower trays
  • transitions from wall to wall or from floor to wall.

The applied sealing is self-adhesive and waterless. The siliconised backing paper on the back of the sealing elements is always slotted or provided with a grip tab to facilitate handling.

Only a single action instead of several work steps – this ensures a high processing speed. Moreover, our sealing tape does not require any drying time and thus offers significant advantages over liquid waterproofing (elephant skin). Tiles and other wall and floor coverings can be laid immediately.

Our bathroom sealing adheres to a wide variety of materials, such as wood, concrete, screed, plaster, plastics, stainless steel, glass, enamel and cementitious building materials. All parts of the sealing are flexible and stretchable and adapt optimally to tiny irregularities.
