Blue Dichtol's distinctive blue tint provides positive visual proof that porosity has been sealed

Blue Dichtol capillary sealer impregnates micro-pores and hairline cracks without vacuum or pressure, forming a protective barrier to gases and liquids. It can be applied to raw metal, or to castings that have been coated with plasma, arc spray or HVOF coatings. 

Blue Dichtol provides exceptional capillary action, penetrating to 0.1mm, restoring pressure tightness and enhancing surface and varnish properties. Proprietary engineered polymers penetrate deeply (up to 20mm) into the coating, preventing corrosion of the metal substrate.

In addition, its distinctive blue tint provides positive visual proof that porosity has been sealed and casting repairs have been completed as specified. 

Blue Dichtol can be applied on-site for quick repairs. Following air cure of approximately 1 hour per millimetre wall thickness, it provides resistance to chemicals, mechanical stress and temperature extremes. 

The cured coating is pressure resistant to 8,700psi, and heat resistant to 932oC. 

It is available throughout North America exclusively from Stronghold Coatings, in pints, quarts, gallons and 5-gallon containers.
