Stronghold Coatings introduces Blue Dichtol capillary sealer

(FRANKLIN, Ohio) — Stronghold Coatings has introduced Blue Dichtol, the first polymeric capillary sealer for castings and composites that allows 100 percent visual inspection to ensure that porosity has been sealed. It impregnates micropores and hairline cracks without vacuum or pressure, forming a protective barrier to gasses and liquids that is not invisible when cured. 

Blue Dichtol penetrates up to .004 of an inch into the coating to prevent corrosion of the metal substrate. Pressure resistant to 8,700 pounds per square inch and temperature resistant to 932 degrees Fahrenheit, this product is ideal for castings and composites. It can be applied by dip, brush or spray, it dries in minutes and cures at ambient temperature. It significantly increases machineability and dampens vibration to further enhance the utility of the components being treated. Applications include sealing of engine casings, pump housings, bridge cables, composite parts, and all thermal sprayed coatings.

Approved for military use, NSN8010016541508, and made in the U.S., Blue Dichtol is part of the Dichtol family of capillary sealers that offer an economical alternative to pressure or vacuum impregnation of castings.
