What is Captain Tolley’s?
Unique penetrating sealant
Captain Tolley’s is a low viscosity copolymer adhesive with exceptional penetrating properties.
Formulated to be as thin as water, Captain Tolley’s draws into hairline cracks and gaps using capillary action.
Once in place, Captain Tolley’s creates a watertight seal that’s strong, flexible and clear in colour. Originally developed for marine waterproofing, it stands up to the toughest conditions
Compatible with nearly all materials
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to remove existing sealants before applying it?
Unlike conventional sealants it’s not necessary, as the sealant will penetrate cracks regardless of the materials involved
Is it affected by contact with other chemicals?
It has good chemical resistance. Once cured, the sealant is unaffected by most everyday chemicals
Can I paint over it?
It can be painted over successfully since so little of the sealant is exposed to the surface
Is it effected by sunlight?
No. The area exposed to sunlight is so small that it does not present a problem
Is it toxic?
No. Unlike many sealants and glues it is water-based and non-toxic
How long does it take to cure?
It depends on the size of the repair, however, we recommend leave a 24-hour period for sealing to be on the safe side. The exposed edges of the sealant dry first; the sealant in the interior takes a little longer
How large can the crack be?
Captain Tolley's will only work on cracks and gaps approximately less than 1mm in width. Anything larger than this, then the capillary action formula will not work.
How do I remove Captain Tolley’s if I spill it?
Remove from hard surfaces with white spirit or methylated spirits
Can you apply whilst area is damp?
It’s optimal if the area is as dry as possible, but captain tolley’s will still work with a small degree of moisture present
