WKT is sealing compound which was developed by
Paul Pietzschke, Chemisch-Technische Fabrik, Hamburg, Germanyin 1962specifically to meet the stringent requirements in the yacht and ship buildingindustry. WKT belongs to the group of sealants.
WKT is a highly elastic and extremely non-ageing
sealantUnlike siliconesealing compounds, WKT is a synthetic rubberand one of the first fully synthetic sealants for the commercial marine industry. Today WKT is used in countless fields of applications such as the construction and building industry, windows and glazing, interior industry, plant engineering and construction, grommetmaintenance, manufacturing industry, recreational vehicles(RV) and aircraftindustries.
WKT is extremely
UVresistant and maintains its high elasticity both in tropicaland arcticclimates, it maintain its adhesiveforce even after years of exposure to all weather conditions and it does not lose its elasticity under constant, greatly varying mechanical stress.
WKT is free of
solvents, heavy metals, isocyanatesand oximesand is not subject to marking as hazardousgoods. WKT in its cured form is physiologically harmless.
