This notice to inform customers of changes made to certain silicone product containers.

Bottle caps of small-mouth brown bottles (25g, 50g, 100g, 200g, 250g, 450g, 600g, 1,000g), and 250g plastic bottles. These containers are used for primers, curing agents and silylating agents.


  1. 25g bottles have been phased out in favor of new 30g bottles.
  2. The dimensions (size) of the 50g bottle have changed.
  3. The older cap seals have been phased out in favor of caps that feature a ratchet-lock seal.
    Opening the bottle leaves a clear indication that the seal has been broken.
