ABRO sealant: characteristics and types
Automotive sealants appeared on the market relatively recently, but in a relatively short period of time quite managed to prove its usefulness, the importance and the need in difficult situations.
ABRO multi-purpose sealant is designed to repair or replace most types of gaskets used in the car. It is made on the basis of silicone and polymers, has high elasticity and durability, able to take absolutely any form, hardens instantly. ABRO silicone sealant withstands tension, compression and shear, and under the action of water, motor oil and antifreeze completely destroyed. He also has a high resistance to brake fluid and gasoline.
The types of sealant
Sealant ABRO there are several types, which differ in physical properties and color:
Red sealant for gaskets ABRO
The tool is intended for replacement and repair of pads, operating at very high temperatures (retains its properties when heated up to 343 0 C), safe for cars with oxygen sensors. Red sealant ABRO you can use to replace almost all instances of car pads. Is resistant to all engine fluids. After drying, the tool remains flexible.
Black and gray sealants ABRO
Black (transparent and blue) sealant can be applied to most types of damaged gaskets and withstands heat up to 260 0 C. the Tool is able to create the strip for a few seconds, easily accepts any form, is endowed with high strength and elasticity, resistant to deformations and cracking. Also not afraid of exposure to water, oil, transmission fluids and antifreeze.
Grey silicone sealant ABRO has been specifically designed for the repair of pads Japanese car brands, but the tool can also be used in engines of cars produced in the United States and Europe. The sealant is resistant to almost all liquids present in the car, with the exception of gasoline. This product is ideal for forming gaskets in automobile components such as gear box, intake manifold, water pump, thermostat housing, oil pan. The composition of the high temperature (resistant up to 343 °C), odourless.
Method of application
- First of all it is necessary to remove fragments of old damaged gasket and a good clean surface.
- Then remove from the sealant cap to pierce the protective foil and put on the supplied nozzle.
- Next you need to cut the nozzle tip so as to form a hole of the desired size.
- Apply sealant to the entire mating surface along the perimeter, forming the layer, whose thickness is about 2-3 mm.
- Before carrying out Assembly should be allowed to dry for 10 minutes. The formed strip is completely dry after 24 hours.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. In case of accidental contact rinse with warm water. With skin sealant to remove with a dry cloth. Sealant ABRO used with good ventilation. The tool should be carefully protected from children.
After use the tube should be covered with a cap. The shelf life while maintaining the tightness is not limited.
Sealant ABRO reviews got following. Users praised the efficiency and inexpensive cost of the tool. Noted that sealants harden fairly quickly, but the average in the area of durability and reliability. Many do not recommend to use them for the mounting of high-speed motors with large loads.
