Sika Corp. recently introduced its SikaLastomer®-714 butyl sealant for the U.S. transportation aftermarket. The company reports that SikaLastomer-714 is a one-component, high-performance butyl sealant that can be easily removed, making it ideal for automotive, commercial vehicle, and RV maintenance applications on components that require disassembly. Recommended applications for SikaLastomer-714 include the sealing of bolt-in parts to vehicle flanges (i.e., truck sliders), as well as the sealing of gaskets to various substrate materials.

SikaLastomer-714 reportedly offers excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates with little (if any) surface preparation. The product is easy to apply and offers good weathering resistance.

“Once applied, SikaLastomer®-714 will not harden, but remains permanently tacky and can easily be dabbed off,” said Francis Boyle, Sika’s vice president for Transportation Aftermarket. “This unique capability, along with its impressive performance properties, make SikaLastomer®-714 an excellent sealant for a wide variety of maintenance applications in the Transportation Aftermarket.”

SikaLastomer-714 is black in color and available in 310-ml cartridges. For more information, visit
