Everkem Diversified Products Introduces Trusil 100(TM) 100% Silicone, NSF Certified Sealant / Adhesive
Press release date: July 21, 2014
TruSil 100 derives its name from its one hundred percent silicone formulation, which gives it greater adhesion, less shrinkage, higher temperature resistance & lower temperature application, and overall increased performance over “extended” silicone formulations.
TruSil comes in a redesigned caulk tube featuring a screw on nozzle which allows for easy cleaning, storage, and reuse after product has been opened. The added removable tip helps reduce waste and costs by limiting open product’s exposure to air and moisture between uses.
“In addition to the removable nozzle making cleaning and storage easier, when multiple tubes are required for a project the installer can swap out nozzles between tubes to ensure their desired bead size remains consistent throughout the entire job,” said Jason Lynch, president of Everkem Diversified Products.
Available in several popular colors and mildew resistant options TruSil 100 is NSF-51 Certified, ensuring that it does not cause food borne illnesses when coming into contact with food and/or beverages – making it ideal to use in and around food processing and storage.
TruSil 100 meets ASTM-C920 performance criteria (+/- 25% joint movement), remains flexible at temperatures as low as -55°F (-48.3°C), and can withstand continuous exposure to temperatures up to 400°F (204.4°C), all while meeting low Volatile Organic Compounds (V.O.C.) requirements.
“A huge part of the Everkem experience is our commitment to developing and providing progressive product solutions to better serve our customers to help them remain competitive in an ever-changing marketplace,” continued Jason Lynch. “That was the motivation to develop TruSil 100; we wanted to provide our customers with a superior silicone solution.”
