What do I need to consider when using acrylics?
See the EGO technical data sheets.
Not suitable for use on glass, glazed surfaces (such as enamel and tiles) and metals without an acid-resistant surface. In general, the contact surfaces should be stable, free from dust and free from de-bonding agents.
Can acrylics be painted over?
Fully painted sealant joints tend to crack with joint movements since the paint applied accommodates less expansion than the sealant beneath it. DIN 18540 says “joint sealants should not be painted over.” In practice, acrylates and SMP sealants are painted over, silicones are not. For painting, the sealant should first be tested in accordance with DIN 52452-4/A3.
