As a leader in sealant supply we aim to meet and exceed the customers needs, Den Braven believes in personal contact and to develop that personal contact. Not only offering support but technical solutions as well. Den Braven silicone sealants are materials of choice by industry and DIY users in the home and for hobby use. Silicone sealants also known as RTV 1 (one – component, room temperature vulcanization) are used as adhesives, sealants, coatings, heat insulators, and encapsulating material. Widely used in the construction, sanitary, DIY and industrial sectors where high quality seals, adhesion with high joint movement tolerances are required. After application the silicone cures with atmospheric moisture to form a durable rubber seal.
Falling in the class of being both a sealant and adhesive, it is important that the Den Braven silicone sealants provide sound adhesion whilst still remaining flexible. Surface preparation is very important in order to obtain that good adhesion. Surfaces must be clean, dry and sound. Den Braven sealants retain their adhesion and flexibility even after many years, and adhere well to many substrates. The sealants mechanical and physical properties remain virtually unchanged to ageing or exposure to weather.
The Vision of Den Braven South Africa is to be recognized as the most valued supplier in South Africa and ultimately in Sub Sahara Africa, by providing products and services to meet our customer’s total sealing solutions.
