Cladseal is a bespoke sealing system that has been designed specifically for PVC Shower wall panels. It is industry endorsed by Europe’s leading PVC Shower wall panel manufacturers and is the choice of the professional.
Cladseal accommodates joint movement in a similar way to the Sealux profiles.
Over ht past decade PVC Wall Panels have grown in popularity, particularly in residential bathrooms. They are easy to install and maintain, relatively inexpensive and come in a wide range of decorative finishes that will cater for all design themes. Cladseal uses a patented design that ensures waterproofing, accommodate joint movement and lifespan longevity.
Cladseal is a two part shower tray/bath sealing system comprising of a PVC strip and a high performance silicone called Sealux-N
Unique benefits of using a Cladseal Seal are:
The incorporation of a pre-applied silicone bond-breaker inside the strip allows substantial joint movement between the wall and shower tray or bath ledge without leaking.
The sealant remains protected inside the trim from the deteriorating effects of modern shower environments. Once installed, Cladseal will last for years.
Exposed silicone seals are like magnets for body-wash. When Cladseal is installed there is no exposed silicone and no mould, just a clean trim.
Again, no exposed silicone so no mould growth. Cladseal trims are white and in most installations will compliment the colour of the ledge or wall cladding and appear as an attractive transition joint profile.

How a Cladseal works
Like Sealux and Panseal profiles, the inner surface of the Cladseal strip outer leg is laminated with a sealant bond-breaker tape (green line).
Excluding the uppermost surface (x), the inner cavity walls of Cladseal are partially layered with a polythene tape indicated by the green line. Sealux-N silicone will not bond to this polythene tape. It is a silicone bond breaker !
When joint movement occurs between the wall and ledge, the Sealux-N silicone bonded to Cladseal at (x) and to the ledge at (y) comes under tension.
To reduce this build up of tension the silicone must stretch, but to stretch without restriction (like an elastic band), it must first release off the inner cavity walls of the Cladseal profile. The silicone bond breaker allows the silicone to release off the inner cavity walls and stretch to reduce the build up of tension.
