TIODIZE BUTT GAP SEALANT is a fast drying product used to fill the gap between aircraft floor panels, vertical panels and seat tracks. This sealant dries within forty minutes of application and pulls up like a rope with minimum effort when panels must be removed.
The current process used on many aircraft is to fill these areas with hot melt wax, similar to packaging glue. The glue never hardens completely and it must be applied
with a large, heavy, hot glue gun. This applicator is expensive, bulky, hard to maneuver in the aircraft and is hot - presenting a potential liability for injury to maintenance personnel handling the gun.
TIODIZEŽ Butt-Gap Sealant is applied with a simple caulking type gun. It is small, easy to use and applied at room temperature. The cost is a small fraction of the cost of the hot melt gun. Once applied, it dries within forty minutes, enabling maintenance personnel to get back to work on those areas hours faster than the hot melt product. TIODIZEŽ Butt-Gap Sealant also dries harder, enabling its usage in more areas without concern for catching debris. It is also usable on vertical panels.
