Global supply chain disruptions are making headline news. One of the items affected and continues facing a serious shortage for another 12 to 18 months, is the raw material used for producing silicone sealants. This forces a search for alternatives. The good news is that the entire AnchorTech line of adhesives and sealants Pettit Marine Paints provides improved technology and value than traditional silicones. Better yet, these are available at marine retailers throughout the Caribbean, and if not in stock, can be brought in quickly to meet boater’s needs.

“We offer three products that are specially formulated for the marine industry and avoid the many raw materials found in silicones,” says Tom Maellaro, marketing vice president for Modern Recreational Technologies, of which Rockaway, NJ-headquartered Pettit Marine Paint is a division.

AnchorTech Premium Fast Dry Adhesive Sealant, UV Resistant Adhesive Sealant and Advanced Hybrid Sealant are paintable, and all provide permanent adhesion to fiberglass, plastic, wood, teak, aluminum, steel, boat hardware and other substrates. The Premium has superior ‘green strength’ meaning it exhibits instant grab-and-hold characteristics. The UV Resistant won’t shrink, crack, yellow or crumble, and once cured, the Advanced Hybrid sealant is mold and mildew resistant. www.pettitpaint.com
