Detectable Silicone Sealant

Detectable Silicone RTV Sealant

Detectasil® from Detectamet is a detectable silicone mastic that can be 'seen' and rejected by metal and X-ray detection systems in the food industry. The sealant can be used in structural fitting and equipment installation and reduces the risk of undetected foreign body contamination of food products.

Available in white or blue, and the 310ml tube fits industry standard applicators. The detectable additive also tastes nasty to rodents and deters them from eating the sealant after application.

It has good performance and can be applied in temperatures from + 5°C to + 50°C, and when cured it will operate at Service Temperatures of - 30°C to + 150°C.

Detectasil® is Neutral Cure, which offeres better adhesive properties for a greater number of materials including PVC-U, most other plastics, glass, aluminium, lead, stone and masonry, and Polycarbonate.

Unopened Detectasil® will store for 12 months, and will have a long service life.
