Innovative Ucolor® pigmenting system available with Bondaflex® Sil 290 FPS-NB and Sil 295 FPS-NB silicone sealants.



Here’s a new idea for contractors and homeowners alike: custom-colored sealants that can be created right on the job site.

Bondaflex Ucolor is a coloring system that enables users to add pigments to both one-part silicone and two-part polyurethane sealants on the job site. The colorization system virtually eliminates lead times from custom-color orders by allowing users to color in the field. Users simply mix one of the 52 colors in the Ucolor Pak with their required amount of sealant, making Ucolor ideal for small projects, maintenance jobs and other repairs.

After a three-minute process of mixing the Ucolor Pak with the sealant, users have an exact match for a variety of substrates, providing a uniform, professional appearance. Ucolor can be mixed with Bondaflex Sil 290 FPS-NB and Bondaflex Sil 295 FPS-NB, one-component silicone sealants ideal for use in building, school, parking, plaza, stadium, and prison applications.

Sil 290 is a low-modulus, neutral-cure silicone sealant that can be used in a variety of construction applications, such as installation and perimeter sealing of windows, doors and skylights; conventional glazing; expansion joints; EIFS systems; precast expansion joints; and curtainwalls.

A neutral-cure, high-performance silicone weatherseal, Sil 295 may be used for conventional glazing; perimeter sealing of windows, doors and skylights; expansion joints and precast expansion joints; unitized curtainwall assembly; and field installation.
