Fungi resistance of sealants
Where products are used in wet areas like kitchens, bathrooms, swimming pools, abattoirs, cooling rooms, storage - and production rooms for food, fungal growth can occur. As a result of temperature, humidity, soap residue and traces of fungi in the air fungi can start growing on wet surfaces and is difficult to remove. This can happen on sealant joints. Fungi can develop at a humidity of 60% and grow even faster at higher humidity.
