“You no longer have to use a brush to achieve the chemical resistance and broad temperature range of a Viton fluoroelastomer,” said Bill Ross, president of Pelseal Technologies. “PLV2020 provides unsurpassed ease of use while delivering all the performance characteristics one expects from Viton fluoroelastomer.”
PLV2020 is a black, one-part coating available in a 12-ounce aerosol spray can, offering the convenience of a Viton spray. The advantages of an aerosol over typical liquid coatings include the ease and speed of application, a smoother finish with no brush streaks and no post-application brush clean-up. The aerosol does not require the mixing and measuring of a second component. After shaking the can, the aerosol is ready to use.
PLV2020 enables the quick application of a thin, chemically resistant, rubbery coating of Viton fluoroelastomer. It has a higher solids content compared to other aerosol coatings for better deposition and thickness, so fewer coats are required. As a Viton formulation, PLV2020 provides resistance to corrosive liquids including sulfuric, nitric and hydrochloric acids; oil and fuel; hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents. It exhibits robust performance in a broad temperature range of -40°F to +400°F.
PLV2020 can be employed in a wide variety of industrial applications including:
- Protective coating for equipment subjected to corrosive fluids and vapors;
- Protective coating for metal substrates subjected to high temperature airflow and chemical vapors;
- Protective, flexible adhesive for bonding Viton components (O-rings, gaskets, bumpers, seals, etc.) to metal and other substrates;
- Flexible adhesive for splicing fluoroelastomer O-rings and cord stock;
- Coating used in jet engine maintenance and other aerospace applications where jet fuel and hydraulic fluids are present;
- Acid-resistant coatings for industrial pumps and equipment housings;
- Touch-up paint for molded fluoroelastomer shapes and components with blemishes, nicks or gouges from field service;
- Top-coat for elastomers to improve their chemical resistance (e.g., poly-urethane, poly-sulfide, nitrile, neoprene, butyl, natural, SBR, polyurethane)
