New formulations can be brushed, sprayed or caulked into seams or cracks where O-rings, gaskets and other seals cannot adequately prevent gaps or leaks.
BENSALEM, Pa., February 26, 2018 – Pelseal Technologies, LLC (www.Pelseal.com), a manufacturer of more than 800 high-performance liquid fluoroelastomer coatings, adhesives, sealants and caulks, developed 23 new product formulations in 2017 to meet the needs of customers in a variety of industries, including for use as industrial coatings and sealants. Pelseal created the formulations to refine the physical properties of its existing products for better VOC, higher solids content, process viscosity or adhesion properties.
Among the new products is Pelseal® A1104, an AFLAS® fluoroelastomer caulk. Pelseal® A1104 is designed to resist alkalis, aminos and other high pH chemicals. It also has excellent oil and fuel resistance and can withstand a broad temperature range beyond 400 degrees F (205 C).
Each Pelseal formulation features the unique properties of a fluoroelastomer: extreme chemical resistance, flexibility, high abrasion resistance and broad temperature range capability. Pelseal products also bond to a broad range of substrates, including most metals, concrete, glass, ceramics, other elastomers and some plastics. In addition to AFLAS-based fluoroelastomer presentations, Pelseal also offers a number of Viton™ and Dyneon™-based formulations.
Industrial Coatings and Sealants Applications
“Engineers are familiar with Viton fluoroelastomer O-rings and gaskets,” said Bill Ross, president of Pelseal Technologies, LLC. “Our liquid fluoroelastomer presentations are unique and can solve corrosion problems in ways most industrial professionals haven’t even imagined. Pelseal coatings, adhesives, sealants and caulks remain flexible in service and resist a broad range of chemistry. Common uses include concrete crack repair, expansion joint sealant, coating metal housings, sealant for tank lids and improving existing gasket seals.”
About Pelseal Technologies, LLC
Pelseal® Technologies, LLC manufactures the world's broadest line of high performance liquid fluoroelastomer products, many of which are formulated from Viton™, a fluorine-containing synthetic rubber. These state-of-the-art coatings, adhesives, sealants and caulks exhibit extraordinary performance characteristics in harsh environments, are able to withstand temperature extremes and resist attack from hundreds of corrosive chemicals and liquids. Because of these unique properties, Pelseal's fluoroelastomer products have been employed in numerous industrial applications where the challenge of corrosive service conditions exists.
