Elastomers- Seam Sealers, RTV silicones & polyurethanes

Seam sealers are used in auto production and collision repair and offer these benefits:
1. Seal spot welded seams To prevent water intrusion, corrosion and vibration
2. Use to dampen the “flutter” that occurs in large, thin body panels
3. Used to tie the out skin to the substructure( door skin to frame )
4. Offers acoustic dampening for a more quite interior
5. Applied at the factor by either robot or by hand and usually heat cured.

1. Many varieties from slow to fast cure, low to high viscosity. Also available in putty form that can cure under water.
2. Epoxies fill gaps well
3. Must be blended thoroughly
4. Resistant to many chemicals
5. Bond to a variety of surfaces but tend to be
Brittle
6. Always wear gloves when using as they can cause allergic reactions.
