McAlpine Plumbing Products has launched MACXSEAL, the only sealant and adhesive tested and approved for use on its own products.
MACXSEAL does not cause any degradation of plastic plumbing products, the company says, unlike some products which are acetoxy, causing plastic to splinter and break. This breakdown leads in turn to stress cracking and leaks.
“Our reputation is built on not compromising on the quality of our products. We test them to destruction. We decided to test sealants and adhesives, to see what would work best with our range – and that’s when we decided to invest in our own,” explained Ross McAlpine of McAlpine Plumbing Products.
“MACXSEAL carries the McAlpine name for a reason, it’s a sealant you can trust to get the job done.”
MACXSEAL’s powerful formula sticks, seals, and fills without damaging McAlpine products, and bonds, cures, and seals quickly. MACXSEAL works fast, has a high strength grab and is resistant to UV radiation and general weathering. It is available in Brilliant White and Super Clear and, unlike sealants with a lower specification, it will not discolour or turn yellow over time, according to McAlpine.
Thanks to its ‘no compromise’ abilities, MACXSEAL is perfect for every kind of sealant and adhesive job, the company says. Whatever the trade or the job in hand, it’s the only tube of sealant the trade will ever need. It is suitable for sealing baths, sinks, vanity units and toilets, tiles, mirrors, metals, wood, stone, concrete, marble, and brick. You can even use MACXSEAL on wet surfaces.
