Matte silicone has arrived

To complete your matte look bathroom or kitchen make sure you use a premium matte finish sealant.

Achieve the perfect finish

To achieve the perfect finish, use the complete Maxisil system when applying silicone and follow these tips of the trade.1. Clean joint
Before applying silicone, clean joint using Maxisil Cleaner.

2. Apply silicone

When working with unpolished natural stone surfaces, make sure not to spread the sealant beyond the joints, as the sealant is difficult to remove once it enters the pores of the natural stones.

3. Smooth finish 

For smoothing use Maxisil Smoothtex N Silicone Smoothing Agent (undiluted). Wash and remove excess agent immediately. Maxisil does not recommend the use of usual smoothing agents (i.e. dishwashing detergents etc.) because of the high sensitivity to staining of some marble and natural stone. When tooling off the matte finish with Maxisil Smoothtex N Silicone Smoothing Agent, please be aware that the joint should only be tooled off once with a smoothing tool immersed in Smoothtex N Smoothing Agent. Do not make repeated passes with the smoothing tool to avoid polishing the matt surface.

Due to the many possible influences during and after application, it is recommended that the customer perform a test prior to application.
