New N2-Charged Seal-Tite Seals Better and Costs Less

Nov. 29, 2011

New nitrogen-charged Seal-Tite™
seals better and costs less

ELKHART, Ind. — Seal Design LLC continues to lead the charge for improved sealing of RVs with an enhanced version of its new Seal-Tite™ hot melt sealant for RV windows, doors and hatches that can reduce manufactures’ sealant cost by 30 percent.

The new Seal-Tite sealing process for RVs principally involves the infusion of nitrogen gas into the sealant material, volumizing it and enabling the material to spread farther and seep better into the tiniest gaps to create an impervious seal. Because the material can be spread farther, manufacturers save on material costs. Yet the nitrogen-infused material is just as durable as the non-infused material. The new closed-cell, gas-sealant mixture is easier to compress when solid, while also even less likely to over-compress, retaining good rebound or reflexive qualities. It also reduces sagging to maintain uniform thickness.

Seal-Tite is a caulk and putty replacement. It is a highly stable sealant that can be applied by the manufacturer very quickly and accurately with a hot-gun or robotic process that keeps bleed waste and cleanup to a minimum. Also, unlike caulk and putty tape, Seal-Tite does not crack, shrink or deteriorate over time, maintaining a solid, worry-free seal. It is a green product manufactured in accordance with Energy Star and American Architectural Manufacturers Association specifications.

RV manufacturers have found over the past year that they can seal RV windows faster and better with Seal-Tite by using a simple applicator gun. The improved, new volumized product will now let RV manufacturers do more with less material, and take advantage of a newly developed robotic application option that applies the sealant with consistent automotive quality faster than ever, said Greg Kelly, general manager of Seal Design, a Dicor Corporation affiliate. “We’re talking a fraction of the time it would take for an assembler to seal a fixture with standard caulking. It can replace the manufacturer’s inventory of several different kinds of caulks and sealants.”

“With nitrogen infused Seal-Tite applied robotically, you get a consistent, automotive quality result — a precisely placed, solid, durable seal that’s going to stand the test of time and weather,” he said.

The infused sealant also sets up faster for increased line speeds and production rates. “This is a great product because both RV manufacturers and RV consumers stand to benefit so much from it,” said Kelly. “It directly addresses manufacturers’ concerns about time, costs and quality, and it gives RV consumers more energy efficient windows and hatches that won’t leak air or water, not just for the first 5,000 miles, but for 50,000 miles and beyond.”

“We’re all about continuous improvement,” said Kelly. “And we listen to our customers. When we found a system that would both reduce the RV manufacturer’s cost and do a better job, we grabbed it. That’s a terrific twofer.”
