Stain-free sealing for natural stone flooring with illbruck FA880

Ryan Gerrard / 06 October 2022

This neutral curing silicone comes with the reassurance of an Illbruck guarantee that it will not cause migratory staining to natural stone.

FA880 is also available in an extensive range of colours to achieve a perfect match for projects, while a contemporary matt finish brings a stylish finish underfoot.

To maintain its attractive surface, FA880 also includes a fungicide to prevent mould growth, making it the perfect partner for sanitary and swimming pool surround applications.

Alistair Inglis, Sales Director for Tremco Construction Products Group (CPG) UK’s Sealing, Bonding & Insulation division – which includes the illbruck brand - said: “FA880 is a high-performance silicone sealant, developed specifically for the sealing of natural stone, as well as other surfaces.

“It has been formulated for the long-term elastic sealing of movement joints between natural stone such as granite, slate, terrazzo, porphyry, limestone, travertine, sandstone, quartzite and marble, as well as for joints with other construction materials including concrete, ceramics, metals, glass, PVC and primed wood.

FA880 offers good resistance to UV light, ageing and weathering and its rapid curing formulation means that it skins within 10-20 minutes.

“We are also the only manufacturer with guaranteed no staining to have achieved a 50% classification under the BS 8449 Movement Accommodation Factor.”
