Blue Seal

Blue RTV Silicone Sealant 1959

Product Description

BLUE SEAL is a 100% RTV silicone sealant that is excellent for a wide range of industrial sealing and adhesive applications. It is a non-slump, paste-like, one-component RTV that cures at room temperature by reacting with moisture in the air to produce a durable, flexible silicone rubber. Retaining its design properties, this product will not sag or shrink even after years of exposure. It is resistant to sunlight, rain, sleet, snow, UV, light, ozone and temperature extremes. Seals will remain watertight and weatherproof. It can be used in binding applications as a space filling rubber adhesive or formed in place gaskets. Pressurized packaging eliminates the need for a caulking gun.
