viscotaq sealant on tank chime dist by indumar

With its cartridge-dispenser system, ViscoSealant delivers a simple method for sealing above-ground flanges and gaps in tank chimes and for waterproofing cable and pipe penetrations.

It has the same advanced chemistry as the other Viscotaq® products, meaning this formulated polymer retains permanent wetting characteristics, allowing the viscous elastic polymer to flow into the pores and anomalies of the substrate. It has immediate, long-lasting adhesion to steel, PE, PP, epoxy, polyurethane, PVC, and more without roughening.

It's the solution Sekisui Specialty Chemicals America reached for when 13 tanks at its polyvinyl alcohol plant in Pasadena, Texas needed to be resealed. The plant used the sealant to provide a moisture barrier and seal off the tank bottoms.

"InduMar's Viscotaq® was a product that could easily be installed by anyone and at the lowest-cost basis," said Douglas Reno, the plant’s maintenance and reliability manager. "The product sales itself. I would give InduMar a nine out of 10 as a rating for their product and support."

ViscoSealant is specially designed for a wide range of structural applications where water leaks are a problem.

  • No cure or hardening time required
  •  Storage stable (dry/cool) with an unlimited shelf life

– Jesse Moran, project manager for TruStar Energy.
