    Hello.

    Sometime ago I used silicone to seal a bath panel which I think is of acrylic material. Bought from B & Q. Next time I needed to remove the panel I found the sealant was not effective.

    Water had got through to all the floor boards in that area.

    Do anyone know of a sealant which will give an effective seal.

    Please see a photo of the panel attached. The floor covering is not carpet, it is vinyl.

    Thanks for any recommendation. Never had a problem using silicone before.

    Poor seal is usually due to improper application , not a problem with the sealant .
