AQUARIUM Technical Data Sheet (05/04)
Ceresit Aquarium is a one component, ready-to-use silicone elastomer intended for sealing and bonding applications.
This sealant cures quickly at room temperature and in the presence of air moisture to give a flexible and strong joint with a
high modulus of elasticity.
Ceresit Aquarium offers excellent resistance to climatic ageing.
Its high cure rate and modulus of elasticity enable very cohesive bonded assemblies to be quickly made. Moreover, its
exceptional translucency makes it a sealant that is particularly well suited to producing aquariums.
Ceresit Aquarium gives primerless adhesion to glass, ceramics and glazed surfaces. On other materials (metals, wood,
plastics, concrete, stone), it is advised to use adhesion primers.
Ceresit Aquarium, once cured, resists to diluted acids and bases, diluted bleach, sea water and salt mist.
Aquariums (translucent and black colours only).
The bonding joint can be broken down into two parts :
On one hand, the sealing joint of width identical to the thickness of glass used and of thickness, h, around 1 to 2mm.
On the other, the structural joint itself, a triangular joint applied to the inner edges, whose thickness, e, depends on the
dimensions of the aquarium.
For safety reasons the minimum glass thickness will be 8mm for the smallest aquariums.

(i.e that of the sealant)
Comment: It is not recommended to have lengths (or widths) over 2m and heights over 1.2m. Consult your glass trade
outlet for other dimensions. Horizontal and vertical glass panes must be of the same thickness.
