Posted: 12/9/2020 12:00:00 AM

If you’ve been searching for an all-purpose adhesive that can bond to just about anything, look no further than Seal-All.

Seal it with Seal-All!

Seal-All is an adhesive used by hobbyists and mechanics alike to seal, bond, insulate, waterproof, and stick to a wide variety of materials. From wood, steel, aluminum, and copper to most plastics and rubber, you can use Seal-All on practically anything! Even porcelain, glass, vinyl, fiberglass, leather, and much more is safe to use with Seal-All! This “repair kit in a tube,” does not require mixing or heating, does not become brittle in cold weather, and resists water, gasoline, oil, and most solvents. Here at ohcanadasupply.ca Seal-All is available in two sizes, a 30ml tube as well as a 60ml tube.

How to use Seal-All?

Seal-All Automotive Adhesive

First things first, use the pointer cap to break the seal on the tube, but make sure you do not squeeze the tube to force the seal open as this will allow too much air inside, and dry out the product. It is also in your best interest to always test Seal-All on a small area before using it on any project. Likewise, remember to wear the appropriate safety equipment when working with adhesives, such as disposable gloves and safety glasses.

Using Seal-All for Bonding: Apply a thin coat of Seal-All to both surfaces you are trying to bond together. Allow the Seal-All to set until it has a tacky consistency (about 2-3 minutes), then press the two surfaces firmly together and allow them to dry.

Using Seal-All for Gasoline Leaks: Press a small amount of Seal-All directly onto the leak and hold it firmly in place for several minutes until it congeals. Then allow the first application to dry for about 5 to 10 minutes. Continue applying coats of Seal-All to the leak, allowing each coat to dry in-between applications until the leak stops.

Using Seal-All for Plumbing Leaks: The process is the same as it is with Gasoline leaks, however, it is advisable to tape over the Seal-All seal with duct tape or masking tape. Then another coat of Seal-All may be applied over the top of the tape for extra security on pressurized leaks.

Using Seal-All for Oil and Water leaks: First close off the leak so that the surface you will be working on is clean and dry. It is important to apply Seal All to a clean, dry surface as wet Seal All has the potential to damage the material you are trying to fix. Then follow the same process as using Seal-All for gasoline leaks, ensuring each layer has adequate time to dry before the next layer is added.

Remember that the final cure time can range anywhere from 2-6 hours depending on how thick of a layer you have applied. When you are finished with the Seal All, it helps to put a thin coat of petroleum jelly on the threads of the cap before replacing the cap on the tube. This makes it much easier to open the next time you need to use it. Screw that cap nice and tight, and keep it stored in a warm place as the product can gel if left in the cold.

And finally, if you ever need to remove the bond, Seal-All can be dissolved in both Acetone and Methyl Ethyl Ketone, as well as a number of other dissolving compounds, all of which we stock here at ohcanadasupply.ca.
