[Review] Waterproof White PVC Adhesive Tape for Sealing Sinks, Bathtubs, etc. – AliExpress

A Waterproof White PVC Adhesive Tape for Sealing Sinks, Bathtubs, etc. was acquired in AliExpress Shop5482187 Store. She came in package with four other products via AliExpress Direct, as I have shown here in Skooter Blog.

It is available in various colors: white, yellow, Grey, café, pink, blue and green; and in two different widths: 2,2 mm e 3,8 mm. The length is 3,2 meters.

Motivation

This is a product that I ended up finding by accident and I realized that it would come in handy for a problem that I had for some time. My kitchen sink is made of granite and has a granite fillet on the wall, giving the finish next to the porcelain tile. The distance between the granite fillet and the porcelain tile is small at the edges of the sink and longer in the center. The construction company must have made the wall a bit crooked or the fillet was a bit bent. The gap between the fillet and the wall is completely filled with grout.

The problem is that the grout grows ugly over time, it gets dark, getting stained and with slime, mainly where for water. I changed the grout once or twice, trying to let a slope for the water to drain, but even so it didn't have much effect. I tried to use white silicone instead of the grout, but the silicone also gets a little grimy over time.

I was seeing the ad for Reusable Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Tape Without Waterproof Residue, already shown here on the Skooter Blog, and to White PVC Adhesive Tape appeared in related ads. I soon imagined that it could serve to solve the problem of my sink.

The price of R $ 34,52 it seemed a little high to risk something that I didn’t even have much faith that would work, but adding it to the cart I completed the minimum amount necessary to get free shipping with the others four products, so in practice the cost was much lower.

Unboxing

A White PVC Adhesive Tape came wrapped in the package, without any manufacturer mark or commercial packaging. Check out the photos and the video of the unboxing and installation:

Installation

Before installing White PVC Adhesive Tape I removed all the silicone I was able to remove from the last application and left granite and coating clean. I also took a mirror, support and sockets that are very close to the granite so as not to disturb the application. Then it was just unrolling the tape, removing the protection and gluing. In the end I cut the surplus, which will probably still do the job for me in the laundry tank. I replaced the plugs in place and it was very good.

Check out the photos:

Quite liked the result, it was a very nice finish. It is natural that PVC will also get dirty and greasy, but it can be cleaned easily with soap and detergent, along with the rest of the sink. I just hope it doesn't turn yellow over time. If not, it should last a long time and it will be the end of the grout changes.

Final Considerations

I bought Waterproof White PVC Adhesive Tape for Sealing Sinks, Bathtubs, etc. apenas para completar o valor mínimo do frete grátis e arriscar para ver se ela funcionaria na minha pia. O resultado foi muito melhor que eu esperava: o acabamento ficou muito bonito. Acabaram-se meus problemas de troca de rejunte sujo. Não sei qual será a durabilidade, mas até o momento posso dizer que foi uma ótima compra.

Muito interesting! Does it end with a water leak that drips between the cladding and the granite finish (fillet) that is placed on the wall? I have this problem. The water seeps down the sink and runs down the wall.
