This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Spotted Saturday evening, Aldi, Shaw...were only a couple left in store..
This was a special buy a little while back
Unibond silicone sealant cartridge, looked a good price for branded product..
Likely being cleared in stores with stock, IF your interested, maybe worth keeping your eye open in your local store.
(I bought the translucent one(dated Mar 2021), will be interesting to try a branded product, see how it lasts..)

Is this the 100% silicon type?

TY
It's a fair price but I've never got on with Unibond silicone sealant although I haven't used it for some years now. I've found the Screwfix basics stuff seems pretty decent although it's £3.50 compared to this lower price... I factor in the faff factor of how often do I want to re do the sealant and how well does it apply to the thing I'd sealing!

if you really want the best for a shower or somewhere that might be prone to mould etc then I'd probably use the Dow 785

Used this Unibond for my kitchen sink and just 18 months and spots of moulds already appeared even though I'd let it dried for 24hrs, so it's hit and miss I suppose.
Make sure it’s in date
I have, historically, used a non branded on shower base to wall, completely removed old stuff, cleaned, and left to dry for 2 days+ applied new stuff left for more than specified time...was a VERY short time before it failed -lost adhesion, and mould appeared under/behind sealant...
IF anyone has info on a TOP QUALITY non lift/mould proof sealant brand/please post, reckon loads will be interested..
(Thanks "spannerzone" duly noted/appreciated.)
(and wayners, top handy bloke)
I will update WHEN I try this product..
I use this for my best jobs. Really easy to apply, if you apply it correctly and smooth then it stays ice white for years. If theres any imperfections then water can settle and goes discoloured or mouldy. Good price and heat added.

I gotta agree with this, the best stuff I've ever worked with. However less than 16 months i have mould in my shower. Im currently trying to work out what to do next.
@chezybezy and @renoman - do you have good extraction in the bathroom? - I have an extractor fan close to the shower and make sure it runs during and 20 mins after a shower and I never get mould, well perhaps a tiny block dot once every 5 years. My mother has no extractor in her bathroom and her silicon goes black within 6 months of application.

I think that can make a huge difference along with using a decent silicone that has antibacterior and mould. I also use a window wiper to run down the shower glass to remove water droplets and again I am sure this all helps plus keeps the glass clean and few water spots. I'm not a super tidy freak, honest

Every job should be your best job.
Isn't this the same price in Home Bargains for years?
Thanks again 'spannerzone'
I WILL be putting in a completely new bathroom, and extraction IS in my thoughts, there never was...
The unbranded stuff I HAD used, never really set 'hard' ...some translucent stuff that had been used elsewhere was. ...not solid, but very tough, and although was probably 15 years old, was still perfect..love to know what that is..or was.. maybe what 'mikeypr' was kinda asking for..?
Anyone know what sealant is used for aquariums...? that must be pretty hard core stuff..
For the price Everflex is good stuff, just replaced bath and used. Very easy to work with
Do you guys use something like this ? or the finger
Remember buying few for like £10 each from b&q many years ago. It’s everything but anti-mould.

Thanks 'rudey_valentino' I have only used masking tape and gloved finger/kitchen roll..
Been wondering about these, loads on fleabay, for little ££...
So, who uses what tool/finger?? guess we a bit off topic now, but hey, educational..
Thanks all...
