Sealrite™ Encapsulants for Wire & Cable

  • Sealrite™ 100A is a translucent, rheological gel for use as a water blocking compound in the telecommunication, electronic, and power industries.
    • Applications: modular jacks, power connectors, buried service wire kits, terminal block connections.

 

  • Sealrite™ 112 is a single component, wax-like, white thermoplastic gel for use in mechanical and sealing applications in a variety of electrical devices and cable designs. Vertellus has pioneered concepts of a wide range of products for these applications for the past 50 years. This technology has been extended to Sealrite 112, which combines water blocking and self-sealing properties in a one-part gel. It is especially well suited for those applications that must tolerate outdoor weather conditions.
    • Applications: modular jacks, power connectors, terminal block connections.
  • Sealrite™ 123 is a single component, rubbery, clear, thermoplastic gel for use in mechanical and sealing applications in a variety of electrical devices and cable designs. Vertellus has pioneered concepts of a wide range of products for these applications for the past 50 years. This technology has been extended to Sealrite 123, which combines water blocking and self-sealing properties in a one-part gel. It is especially well suited for those applications that must tolerate outdoor weather conditions.
    • Applications: modular jacks, power connectors, terminal block connections, metal housing protection.

Applications

Food Colorant

2-Vinylpyridine is the key intermediate in the production of the API, betahistine, an anti-vertigo medicine.

2-Vinylpyridine is a reactive monomer and once polymerized, the nitrogen is less exposed/accessible than its counterpart, 4-Vinylpyridine. It can be copolymerized with many other monomers, in particular cationic monomers, such as acrylamide, acrylates, and also with other vinyl-based monomers (e.g. styrene). The benefit of the addition of a 6-membered heterocyclic moiety is the increased Van der Waals forces which impart better electrostatic forces to the finished polymer, improving adhesion.
