Bonding & Sealing Below the Waterline

Bonding and sealing below the waterline have its own unique set of important considerations when choosing an appropriate adhesive sealant. Structural integrity, torsional stress of joints in adverse weather conditions, constant immersion in water, osmosis, galvanic corrosion and differing thermal expansion rates of dissimilar substrates are all factors which have to be addressed during any build process.

It’s imperative that any product used combines exceptional structural strength with outstanding elongation and tear performance whilst retaining the flexibility of the sealed joint as this is critical to allow the uniform distribution of joint stresses caused by shock, vibration, oscillations, swelling or shrinking.

Note: Due to diversity of substrates, preliminary testing is always recommended.
