Sealant Between Wood Worktop and Glass Splashback

by proftanda » Sat Jan 16, 2016 5:38 pm

Hi there,

I'm fitting a wooden worktop in my new (ex-display) kitchen.

The kitchen came with an mdf board that was the splashback - fronted with a plastic coating (it looks like a plain laminate worktop).

I'm using this but I'm adding a glass splashback panel to go behind the hob.

The worktop is oiled walnut (I've just applied a 4th coat of tung oil!)

Can anyone recommend what sealant I should use (if any) for the join between the worktop and the two kinds of splashback?

The splashback is coloured so I'd ideally seal in something clear/invisible or to match the wood.

Thanks!

Nick

what ever you do not use a water based silicone.

Thanks. How about an oil based mastic like this?

The largest gap I need to fill is about 2-3mm. It says I only forms a skin rather than completely drying.

Have you got any experience of this?

Thanks!

Nick
