How to get a perfect silicone/sealant lines for the pro or diy’er

For the diy’er and even the professional, the task of getting a perfect silicone/sealant line can be near impossible. As a tradesman of over seventeen years, I know this fact all to well! A silicone/sealant line is almost always a finishing dressing to both add protection from water and a decorative clean line rather than have gaps on display. Most people often result in running their finger over the silicone in an attempt to gain a uniform looking line with a satisfactory success rate of less than 5%. What if there was a solution to this that anyone could use with perfect results every time!!..

Well, there is!!

I used to take forever applying silicone/sealants and the results were a little sketchy to say the least. When using a finger to create a uniform line there tends to ensue a complete and utter mess everywhere. Not to mention the issue of future mould..

When a finger is used to create a uniform silicone line, small traces of proteins can be left on and slightly below the surface of the silicone. If the conditions are right i.e. a warm humid area like a shower or bathroom, mould can develop as bacteria feeds off the proteins left behind by your finger. We’ve all seen the mouldy silicone line around the bath, right?!

What am I promising here?

  • I’m promising a fast application of silicone/sealant/caulks!
  • An exceptional uniform professional finish every time – even across tiles – with little effort!
  • A mess free application!
  • No need to use a finger or soapy water!
  • Apply silicone/sealants across tile grout lines without getting stuck, leaving a an un-uniform line!

Cramer fugi kit for perfect silicone sealant linesThe Cramer Fugi Kit!! This kit was truly a revelation for me. In retrospect, for seventeen years I’ve been giving my clients substandard silicone finishes. Then I found the Cramer fugi kit and all that changed! This kit really does do what it says on the tin with absolute ease. It’ll give you a professional silicone/sealant finish with no need to use a finger and soapy water, no need to use tape. Simply apply the silicone bead and run the fugi kit across it, voila!!
