SA Silicone N-10 is a one-part 100% oxime, neutral curing adhesive/sealant. It is a user-friendly silicone designed for general-purpose glazing and sealing applications that require long-term reliability. This silicone sealant exhibits excellent weathering and UV resistance, remaining unaffected by high and low temperatures. Its superior physical properties are retained even after many years of exposure.
Key Performance Properties
One-part ready to use
Excellent UV resistance
5 Star VOC compliant
SA Silicone N-10 demonstrates excellent adhesion to various materials such as glass, ceramics, aluminium, GRP, granite, concrete, galvanised steel, and many plastics. It can be used for standard glazing of frames, panels, and shop fronts. It is suitable for sealing environmental and refrigerated rooms, sheet metal, skylights, ventilators, and air-conditioning units. Additionally, it can be used for the assembly of metal/plastic signs, weatherproofing, and many other general glazing applications.
Typical data values should not be used as specifications. Please contact Sealants Australasia for further information. A thin bead of sealant can tolerate more movement than a thick bead. The joint width and depth should be no less than 4 mm, with maximum joint widths not exceeding 25mm. Joint depths should be half the width, with a maximum depth of 10mm. The recommended backing material for providing the correct joint depth is polyethylene closed-cell foam rod. If the joint is too shallow, use a polyethylene tape bond breaker. Ensure that the silicone sealant does not contact the back of the joint or any staining materials.
The shelf life of SA Silicone N-10 Silicone Sealant is 12 months when stored in a cool, dry place. The storage temperature should not exceed 25°C, as higher temperatures can decrease the shelf life.
Not recommended for use on submerged joints where porous substrates permit water to reach the bond interface
Not suitable for certain rubber products where bleeding of plasticiser may occur
Not recommended for horizontal walkways subjected to abrasion
Cannot be painted, as paint will not adhere to the sealant
Not recommended for use on polycarbonate plastic
Suitability for use on other types of plastic, including extruded gutter profiles, should be tested prior to application
