Everkem Diversified Products has introduced TruSil 100 silicone sealant to its Seal Tite brand of sealants and adhesives.
Everken said TruSil 100 derives its name from its 100 percent silicone formulation, which gives it greater adhesion, less shrinkage, higher temperature resistance and lower temperature application and overall increased performance over extended silicone formulations, Everkem said
TruSil comes in a redesigned caulk tube featuring a screw on nozzle, Everkem said, which allows for easy cleaning, storage and reuse after the product has been opened. The added removable tip helps reduce waste and costs by limiting open product's exposure to air and moisture between uses.
TruSil 100 is available in various colors and has mildew resistant options. TruSil 100 is NSF-51 certified, ensuring it does not cause food borne illnesses when coming into contact with food and/or beverages.
TruSil 100 meets ASTM-C920 performance criteria, remains flexible at temperatures as low as -55°F (-48.3°C) and can withstand continuous exposure to temperatures up to 400°F (204.4°C), all while meeting low volatile organic compounds requirements, the company claimed.
