Unless it's a task you perform on a regular and repeat basis, for instance as part of your day-to-day job, applying sealants and achieving the perfect finish isn't always easy.
Too much, too little or even inconsistent pressure on the trigger of an applicator gun can leave you with a bead or surface that is non-uniform, non-linear and frequently somewhat ugly.
But all that could be about to change.
Bond It, one of the UK's fastest growing manufacturers of sealants, adhesives and building chemicals, has launched a new sealant applicator tool kit which makes it easier than ever for even the novice sealant user to achieve flawless results, every time
Developed in line with the business' commitment to offering innovative solutions that help to simplify any sealing, bonding or waterproofing task, the new kits feature four profiling tools in a convenient plastic case complete with an instructions leaflet.
These tools can be used to smooth and shape sealant applied in recessed, flush or fillet joints to leave a more attractive, neat and tidy finish.
The four different size tools can accommodate any joint measuring up to 28mm as well as any angle including 45°, 90° and 180°.
They can also be used to create both concave grooves and convex shapes and are suitable for use with any type of sealant employed in both internal and external applications.
Speaking of the new kits, Kirstie Cooper, marketing manager at Bond It, said: "Bond It has a firm focus on setting new standards in sealants.
"We've already played a significant part in pioneering a new generation of hybrid sealants based on advanced polymer technology and the launch of our sealant applicator kits hopes to build on that. Their introduction reflects our commitment to raising the bar not only in terms of how sealants are made, but also in how they are applied and used.
"The new sealant applicator kits are an ideal choice for businesses targeting DIY customers as well as for stockists looking for a value-adding item they can combine or giveaway with other Bond It products - for instance as part of a sales promotion.
"They're also a far superior and more effective alternative to another ‘tool' commonly used for smoothing and finishing sealant - namely a wet finger."
