SEALING FISH PONDS WITH CT116 August 2011
Sealing fish ponds is no longer a difficult task since the introduction of the CT1 unique sealant and construction adhesive. Prior to this, fish pond sealants available were not really fit for their purpose.
There were many reasons but let’s look at what is available for sealing fish ponds, firstly there is the silicone sealant of various grades most of which contain harmful solvents. When applying these types of silicone fish pond sealants, the area where it is to be applied has to be perfectly dry as silicone sealant will not adhere to a wet surface. Then the silicone fish pond sealant has to be left to cure for at least 48 hrs in order that none of the solvent escapes into the water which could potentially damage the fish.
Even when this process is carried out the effectiveness of these silicone fish pond sealants are fair to poor. This is predominantly due to the lack of adhesion of silicone sealant to rubber sheeting.
When using our revolutionary CT1 unique sealant for sealing fish ponds it turns a very difficult task into a fast and easy task why?
Well CT1 is not a silicone sealant but unique hybrid polymer formulation that is able to stick onto wet surfaces even under water making it the perfect sealant for sealing fish ponds, CT1 contains no solvents and is 100% V.O.C free so will not contaminate the water extremely fish friendly. There have been occasions when the fish have nibbled at the cured CT1 sealant with no adverse effect but with so many species of fish we cannot say that for all species.
The adhesion of CT1 sealant on most materials including butyl rubber sheeting is quite formidable and will remain flexible a must for sealing fish ponds actually. CT1 has an elongation break of 350%. CT1 fish pond sealant has a food safe certificate and is the ultimate environmental sealant. So CT1 will seal the fish pond but also bond the rubber to stone.
CT1 fish pond sealant is fantastic for making repairs such as tears in the pond liner, this can be carried out without draining the pond, incredible but true.
