Over many decades, Ultraseal has established a leading position in the worlds industrial markets supplying sealants for the impregnation of porosity in metal castings and other components.
When Ultraseal launched a methacrylate sealant, the impregnation industry began a radical change in the methods employed for sealing leaking porous castings. Prior to Ultraseal Sealant, the most common sealants used for impregnation were sodium silicate (water glass), polyester and to a lesser extent anaerobic resins. These processes were inherently labour intensive, suffered from low productivity, had ineffective performance on certain types of porosity and in some cases were hazardous in use.
In contrast Ultraseal sealant allowed the use of a very simple process that provided the customer with high productivity, significant labour savings, and very good sealing performance. Today the Ultraseal range of sealants are specified by multinational companies in applications ranging from critical military and aerospace components to high volume automotive engines.
In order to keep ahead of industry’s continual drive for high quality and technical performance, Ultraseal developed recyclable Sealant. The world’s first 90°C water curing acrylic impregnation Sealant provides a milestone in sealing performance and temperature stability.
