Filling in Seams and Gaps on Self Adhesive Vinyl Tiles

Postby wickid » Tue Nov 21, 2017 4:51 am

Hi all,

Self-adhesive vinyl tiles were recently laid on my bathroom floor. However, I'd noticed there are a few seams/gaps between some tiles. I'd searched online for a fix and came across something called a vinyl tile seam sealer but that is only sold in the USA and not available in the UK.

I'd enquired about this at a DIY store but the only thing the store assistant can advise is a waterproof silicone sealant but he was unsure if it will be hard-wearing due to feet traffic.

So I'd researched again online and discovered that the proper name for this seam sealer is a seam coating kit for vinyl tiles.

But Googling this for the UK, a seam coating kit is used for sil-nylon tents and fabrics:

My question is whether this kind of seam coating kit, as it is waterproof silicone, can be used to fill in the seams/gaps on my vinyl tiles?

Thanks in advance.
