Overview

SealTek products are acrylic-based sealing materials pre-applied by ND Industries to the underhead of fasteners. SealTek products replace the need for the assembly of O-rings, gaskets, or sealing washers. When the fastener is installed, SealTek conforms to surface dimensions and fills the voids between mating parts, forming a robust seal.

How it Works

During the pre-application process, ND Industries precisely dispenses SealTek onto parts and then heat or UV cures the material in place. The resulting product is dry to the touch and ready for immediate installation. SealTek can be applied to a wide variety of parts for use in functions such as: • Cushioning • Insulating • Masking • Sealing • Trimming • Controlling Noise • Reducing Vibration

Features

Advanced Sealing

SealTek products provide an immediate positive seal of up to 500 psi* and eliminate leaks while filling voids between mating parts.

Versatile

SealTek adheres to ferrous and non-ferrous metals including a wide range of common fastener finishes.

Reliable

Unlike O-rings and nylon washers which are difficult to seat, tear easily and lose integrity when nicked or cut, SealTek fasteners are easy to seat and perform consistently.

Environmental Resistance

SealTek offers weatherability and dielectric strength while providing excellent fire, chemical, abrasion, UV, and ozone resistance.

Chemical Resistant

SealTek’s three dimensional cross-linked structure resists a wide variety of chemicals including gasoline, oil, diesel fuel, alcohol, kerosene, and hydraulic fluids.

Long Shelf Life

SealTek products exhibit an extended shelf life and will not dry or shrink with exposure to the environment.

Benefits

  • Saves Time: Fasteners coated with ND Patch can be automatically fed through standard feeding devices and require no cure time after installation.
  • Saves Money: The bulk pre-application of SealTek products to fasteners is less expensive than other underhead fastener sealing methods. It also eliminates the need for costly O-rings and nylon washers.
  • Quality Control: Pre-Applied SealTek fasteners are coated to specification, insuring consistent performance.
  • Reusable: Fasteners coated with SealTek are removable and reusable.
  • Corrosion Resistance: SealTek isolates dissimilar metals and helps to reduce galvanic corrosion.

Notes

  • On part shelf life is indefinite when stored at 22±4°C.
  • As with all our pre-applied products, ND Industries can apply SealTek onto your fasteners at any one of our regional service centers, or we can supply you with fasteners that contain pre-applied SealTek.
