    Easy-to-use, Multi-Purpose Resin

    IMPCO's IMSEAL-800 macro-porosity resin is a low viscosity modified two-part epoxy. You will find it the perfect, quick-fix solution for filling blowholes, cracks, surface defects and macro-porosity on iron, aluminum, brass, and other metal castings and parts. IMSEAL-800 can be used without the aid of reinforcing materials on metal parts in tough, pressure-resistant, and high strength applications. IMSEAL-800 is clear and can be special ordered with aluminum, brass or iron fillers.

    Most casting repair resins seal only the part surface. This seal is susceptible to damage by physical shock, chipping off and machining operations.

    IMPCO's IMSEAL-800 is drawn beneath the surface - penetrating and filling porosity deep within the wall thickness of a casting. It fills all interconnected passageways becoming a permanent indestructible seal and is not affected by subsequent operations.

    A Pressure Tight Seal Starts Beneath the Surface

    IMPCO's ongoing research and continual development of resins that meet customers' needs has led to the formulation of IMSEAL-800. Its proven sealing ability utilizes a simple heat process which draws the resin deep inside pores producing a permanent seal superior to most other spot sealing resins that are applied only to the part surface. Machining or subsequent operations can then be performed on the part without fear of breaking the seal.

    In addition, cured IMSEAL-800 is resistant to most fuels, oils, alcohols, glycols, solvents, salts, mild acids, freons as well as most other common liquids and gases. IMSEAL-800 is available in these four types:

    • IMSEAL-800 - Clear
    • IMSEAL-801 - Aluminum filled
    • IMSEAL-802 - Brass filled
    • IMSEAL-803 - Iron filled
