Paint Sealing with SikaPower® Epoxy Sealants and SikaSeal® Acrylic Sealants
Paint sealants are referring to products made for joint sealing prior to painting. When the paint requires heat for curing, heat cure paint sealants like 1C SikaPower® epoxy sealants with high wash-out resistivity or SikaSeal® acrylic sealants are used. 1C SikaPower® epoxy sealants stand out with excellent wash-out resistance when used in combination with e-coating or powdercoating processes.
Exterior Sealants and Weather Sealants for Vehicle Manufacturing
In vehicle manufacturing, exterior sealant joints must withstand sunlight, rain, and contact with chemicals. A high color stability is important to maintain the look and feel of a new vehicle. Sika offers weather sealants based on polyurethane as well as silane terminated polymer technologies (STP). High UV resistivity and color stability isn’t primarily a technology related topic.
