American Sealants Inc. has expanded its capabilities to include an aerosol self propelled can! Private label an ASI RTV Silicone in an aerosol can for a self propelled easy to dispense bead or send us your material for contract packaging!
With countless hours of research and testing we have worked to perfect a bead dispensing aerosol can for a variety of materials! What separates our can from current cans in the market?
-Nitrogen Powered & Safe: Nitrogen insures stability for moisture cure adhesives & caulks. Nitrogen is safer than most other propellants used. The can is a one piece can which gives it additional strength.
-Improved Piston: We do not use a flimsy piston that allows over time for propellant to leak into the material creating air bubbles or faulty can. Instead we use a substantial double wall piston with other proprietary advancements that keeps the propellant separated in both extreme heat and cold.
-Faster More Efficient Dispensing: One of the improvements we have made is dispense time. Most other cans will take 9+ minutes to dispense and drastically slow towards the end of the can. Our improvements make for a faster dispense time which leads to a cleaner bead. We also see less of a speed drop off towards the end of the can which keeps the end user happy and material from being wasted.
-Less Waste & More Consistent: Another common complaint is waste & dispensable volume. There are cans that use a foil bag technology. The problem with this is that the foil does not crumble in a consistent manner which can lead to material waste. This not only creates a weight and measures problem but also can cost the customer material. Our dome shaped piston creates a consistent dispense pattern and allows us to maximize dispensable volume. This creates efficiency and saves material for both the manufacture & customer. All of these advancements make this can environmentally sustainable.
-Advanced Nozzle Options & Ease of Use: Most nozzles come on the side of the can and can be easily lost. We attach our nozzles right onto the actuator which makes our product not only easy to use but also keeps the end user from losing it over time. The nozzle also can be detached. Therefore, if the material cures in the nozzle in between uses a new nozzle can be put on or you can take off the nozzle and dispense straight from the actuator connection point. (Please keep in mind that after a use the material would cure into the can over an extended period of time if using a moisture cure product.)
How Does It Work? The standard nozzle operates easily. You would cut the caulk tip off of the nozzle to the desired bead size. Then push the nozzle over to the side which actuates the piston and dispenses the material out of the hole cut in the nozzle. There are trigger nozzles available as well as other advanced nozzles and patterns for different applications. Please inquire if interested.
What Materials Can Be Packaged Into The Aerosol Can? We have tested a variety of RTV silicone technologies, caulks, greases, and other thixotropic paste like materials. There is room to expand this list and we are willing to help you perform test if you are interested in additional technologies being placed in our can.

How To Remove Adhesives & Caulks? Use ASI 0240! More information on the ASI 0240 Adhesive Remover & Cleaner. Click here to view!Uncategorized | 3 Comments
American Sealants Inc. has just received three new AAMA approvals. The following are the new AAMA approval listings; 802.3-10, 803.3-10, 805.2-10. ASI Window Sealant has proven durability, bonding capability, consistency, and it is AAMA approved. ASI Window Sealant is available in a variety of different colors including, white, flat white, blue white, bronze, cocoa, clear, beige, canvas, terratone, sandstone renewal, and sandstone. We also have custom color matching capabilities. Our window caulk is 100% silicone. It will not shrivel like other products on the market and dry out which leads to cracking. Instead, because it is 100% silicone, what you see when you apply is what you will get. We also add quality in the way we fill our window caulk cartridges. We do not simply fill a cartridge and package it, instead there are a system of quality control points in which we check for errors in the product. This is why you will not have air bubbles when you are caulking with ASI Window Sealant. These are just a few reasons why you should trust and use ASI Window Sealant for your next job!

Introducing Our New Laminate Squeeze Tube for Silicones & Other Moisture Cure Adhesives/Sealants
I appreciate good design, but often some of the best appears in areas too insignificant to be noticed. This is the case for the packaging design of the 2.8 oz. tube for #388 non-corrosive sealant.
We use it inside as shell enclosure for a UHF antenna matching network to seal soldered coaxial cable junctions. It was chosen for its non-corrosive and electrical properties, for which it does well. But, in using it, I have come to appreciate the tube nozzle and cap design which permits applying exactly the right amount to the right places and then resealing without the product hardening in the nozzle between times of usage. A small thing, but it was a problem in the past with other products. It speeds things up, improved the result and reduces waste and cleanup. It’s a bit of good engineering that might otherwise get overlooked.
I wonder if you could pass this along to those down the line who were responsible. I appreciate their good work.

Two part Cartridge Dispensing Instructions:(For Example Purposes A Common Loctite Product Has Been Used)
The two part cartridge dispensing instructions provided are generic. If you have specific questions about your application do not hesitate to ask someone on our technical staff. Please review the MSDS and Tech Data for your product before use.
1. Load a cartridge of adhesive into the appropriate manual dispense gun.
2. Remove the cap from an adhesive cartridge and dispense a little out of the cartridge, to be sure both sides are dispensing.
Fig. 1: remove cap
Fig. 2: lightly dispense some material from the cartridge
3. Place static mix nozzle on cartridge and dispense a small mass of product to ensure it is mixing properly.
Fig. 3: put nozzle on end of cartridge
Fig. 4: dispense small amount of mixed product
4. Begin dispensing and using the material on the application.
5. If you have finished the application before the cartridge is completely out, remove the nozzle and plave the original cap back on the product. *Place the cap back on the cartridge with each side back on its original side. If the two parts mix, it will cure the cap to the cartridge.*
6. Nozzle will cure and are only recommend for single use.
Let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We have a variety of two part adhesive products, do not hesistate to ask for information concerning your application.
