Sealants are substances used to prevent the passage of fluids through openings or joints in various diverse materials. In an industrial setting, they might also be used to block the transmission of dust, heat or sound. Depending on their specific application and the environment in which they are to be used, sealants can be either rigid or flexible, strong or weak, temporary or permanent. Although sealants do not qualify as adhesives, some do possess adhesive qualities and are thus often referred to as adhesive-sealants or even structural sealants.
Sil-Mid Limited stock a broad range of different sealants for an equally broad variety of applications, including the following: corrosion inhibitive, firewall, epoxy, gasket, fuel tank and jointing compound. Their wide range of products are made by leading manufacturers that include Loctite, Naftoseal, Dow Corning, PPG Aerospace and Momentive Performance Materials.
