Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do I prepare the seal for installation?
Prior to installation, it is important to cut the seal to the desired length using scissors or a knife. Additionally, make sure that the bonding surface is properly cleaned with a 50/50 mix of denatured alcohol and water solution to ensure a strong bond.
2. Which adhesive option should I choose?
The Trim-Lok Square Rubber Lid Seal is available with two adhesive application options. The high-strength foam acrylic adhesive (BT) creates an airtight seal between the rubber and substrate and has low initial tack for easy repositioning. The general-purpose pressure sensitive adhesive (HT) is ideal for light-duty applications and is best used to hold the rubber seal in place while installed in a static application or compressed between two stationary objects.
3. How long does the adhesive take to fully bond?
If you choose the (BT) high-strength tape system, it requires 72 hours of cure time for full bond strength. This ensures the ultimate bond between the rubber and substrate, with the highest peel and shear resistance. The (HT) general-purpose pressure sensitive adhesive does not require a specific cure time.
4. Can the seal be used in dynamic applications?
The general-purpose pressure sensitive adhesive (HT) can be used in some light-duty dynamic applications against a variety of substrates. However, it is always recommended to test the seal in your specific application to ensure optimal performance.
