XIAMETER® Brand Acetoxy Sealants

XIAMETER acetoxy sealants are one-part, room-temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone sealants suitable for a wide range of applications.

Features And Benefits

  • One-component adhesive/sealant for ease of use
  • Good adhesion to many substrates
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Cures to a tough, flexible silicone elastomer
  • Resistant to ozone, ultraviolet (UV) radiation and temperature extremes

 

Typical Uses

  • Industrial sealing and bonding
  • Formed-in-place gaskets
  • Waterproofing rimless sinks
  • Sealing around shower-tub enclosures, sinks, urinals and whirlpools
  • General sealing and caulking applications

Chemistry
