SEALANT: Behind the idea

MAYA PLASS. Marine & Coastal Ecologist

Maya established her company Learn to Sea in 2007, allowing her to use her passion and knowledge of all things coastal in educational workshops for children and adults alike. She is a member of the BBC’s Spring/Autumnwatch team and has contributed to the BBC’s Coast and ITV’s Hungry Sailors.


To create her low-cost camera housing, Maya used a plastic storage jar, a rubber glove and Wickes 60 Minute Shower and Bathroom Sealant. Made by one of the UK’s top 5 sealant/adhesive manufacturers, the sealant is ‘moisture curing’ – reacting with moisture in the air so that within 60 minutes, a perfect, usable seal has been formed (The sealant beneath the seal will cure fully within 24 hours).
