Technical Data

Aluminum Kwik Seals Is a self-adhering material featuring a heavy duty protected  Aluminum Polyethylene Mesh reinforced foil film surface and a highly aggressive water resistant butyl rubber adhesive. This tough film surface provides a puncture and UV resistant surface. The 20 mils of butyl prevents water from penetrating and seals tightly to most any surface.

APPLICATION:

Peel off release paper backing, pinch Seal in half to determine center, center on fastener head, flatten to original shape, center tool, push down hard, then twist.
Presto! A customized water tight fastener Seal!

Poly Seals
Poly Kwik Seals & Tape Is a self-adhering material featuring DuPont Sontara* fabric which is made of wood pulp & spun polyester and a highly aggressive water resistant butyl rubber adhesive. This woven fabric is excellent at absorbing coatings and is the preferred method for coating manufactures  The 20 mils of butyl prevents water from penetrating and seals tightly to most any surface. This material must be coated after application.

APPLICATION:

Peel off release paper backing, pinch Seal in half to determine center, center on fastener head, flatten to original shape, center tool, push down hard, then twist.
Presto! A customized Seal Ready to Coat.
Bonding Time Immediate Water tight Agrssive grip Full Bond 24 hours.
Thickness 20 mils+/5mils.
Tensile Strength 475 psi ( with 60% elongation) ( adhesive/sealent).
Peel Strength 10 Lbs. per lineal inch (adhesive).
Fluid Absorption Excellent for coatings. Fabric of wood pulp & polyester.
U.V. Resistance Avoid direct U. V. Exposure.
