Four new PLIOGRIP® by Valvoline seam sealers introduced by Ashland


DUBLIN, Ohio – Four new two-component epoxy seam sealers from Ashland allow collision repair centers to enjoy faster repair times. The new seam sealers may be painted immediately following application, thereby eliminating time waiting for sealers to fully cure before moving the vehicle into the paint booth. This capability, from Ashland Specialty Polymers & Adhesives, a business group of Ashland Performance Materials, a division of Ashland Inc. (NYSE: ASH), has never before been offered in a two-component seam sealer.

The four PLIOGRIP by Valvoline seam sealers are designed to allow technicians to duplicate most any Original Equipment Manufacturer seam. Non-Sag Seam Sealer 6 and High-Body Seam Sealer 12 are designed for standing seams, tape seams, and angle seams often found on import vehicles. High Body Seam Sealer 12 may also be used in applications where extra gap-filling properties are required. Controlled-Flow Seam Sealer 6 is an ideal product for applications requiring leveling characteristics while also retaining some body, such as duplication of rounded-edge tape seams found on import vehicles. Self-Leveling Seam Sealer 12 is a low-body flowable product for roof ditches and puddle seams. As with other PLIOGRIP by Valvoline adhesives and sealers, the number in the product name denotes the work time of the product.

These new seam sealers are now available from PLIOGRIP by Valvoline distributors and jobbers. For more information, contact John Baetz at (614) 790-3273.
