Spend Five Years Mold-Free With Polyseamseal Ever Bright Silicone Sealant

AVON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bathroom and kitchen mold has met its match. Henkel Corporation introduces Polyseamseal® Ever Bright™ Silicone Sealant, the first proprietary silicone formula designed with a triple action protection system to defend the cured silicone sealant against mold for five years after application. The triple action protection prevents mold from adhering to the sealant, resists the spread of mold and inhibits mold growth on the cured seal for five years. The 100-percent waterproof formula prevents and eliminates mold from the inside out, leaving the cured sealant free of common mold.

While most traditional bathroom and kitchen sealants claim anti-microbial protection, many show signs of deterioration within the first year after application. With Polyseamseal® Ever Bright™ Silicone Sealant's "5-Year Mold-Free" formula, once the seal is cured, it's designed to inhibit the growth of mold on the cured seal for five years.

Polyseamseal® Ever Bright™ Silicone Sealant is available in white in 10 oz. plastic cartridges at select home improvement centers. The suggested retail price is $9.99.

The Polyseamseal® brand offers a full line of versatile, easy-to-use caulks and sealants. Visit www.polyseamseal.com for additional information.
