Sealing of GRP to itself in the manufacture of septic tanks is of upmost importance to one of our customers. They had two applications as detailed below:
With the first application the septic tanks are manufactured in 2 halves. When the two halves are brought together, an adhesive and a mechanical fix is required to ensure there is a fully waterproof seal. This obviously is of great importance so to prevent any leakage.
Ureka were able to help by supplying the adhesive part. Alansons recommended the Aro-Seal 1155. This is supplied in 600ml foils or 230kg drums for air assisted dispensing.
The second application was for the rotary moulded sceptic tanks, on these tanks a foam fillet is bonded onto the circumference of the tanks before a final resin coat is applied.
