New Grades of Pre-Applied Fastener Sealant

Nov 10, 2016

Our long standing Tec-U-SealTM line has five exciting new grades to choose from that vary in softness, elasticity and self-adhesion, for ‘stay in place’, easy assembly. Specialize colors are always available for Tec-U-Seal as well as most Tectorius products; offering custom, signature product identification for our customers.

Tec-U-Seal™ pre-applied fastener sealants are a unique resin matrix sealing and seating material for under head encapsulation. Specifically designed to flow and adhere to most metals and smooth surfaces, Tec-U-Seal is a low-cost and effective alternative to O-ring seals, injection molded seals, and die-cut gaskets. Self-adhering grades permit fasteners to be pre-assembled and retained in position until final attachment is complete.

Tec-U-Seal works by compression seating. The material absorbs shock, prevents movement and fills gaps created by thermal expansion, its elastomeric nature minimizes movement and resist loss of seating and sealing ability in stressed situations.

Unlike many competing products, Tec-U-Seal grades are thermo-setting, non-plastisol polymers that are very solvent resistant and thermally stable. Advanced formulations offer multiple options for application and curing, demanding low energy processes making them friendly to most plantings and non-metal applications.
