Epple sealing compounds are liquid and silicone-free. They are available as pastes or liquids which either remain in their liquid state (permanently plastic sealants) or cure on application (film-forming sealants). Liquid sealing compounds have crucial advantages: they conform to every surface, so saving valuable time as extensive preparatory work is not required. In short: no laborious preparation of indentations, sections or grooves – and no extensive and expensive storage of solid sealing compounds.
The spectrum stretches from non-curing, permanently plastic sealants through curing sealants to very hardening, non-flexible systems. Special types are stable to aggressive chemicals like acids or alkaline solutions, and other sealing compounds withstand extreme heat – as much as 800°C. But there are further demands: high-maintenance components require easily soluble and non-adhesive sealants, easy to clean and usually removable.
