The Tension and Colle sealing compounds

The only sealing compounds certified in France no. C391C by France’s Aerospace Agency’s Technical Departments (S.T.A.E. - Services Techniques pour l’Aéronautique et l’Espace)

A NITROCELLULOSE base, assuring a more flexble and better tension than with BUTYRATES.

They are used and proven since 1965... on airplanes mounted with Polyester (Dacron), Linen and Cotton skin cloths.

We do not distribute the “red” sealing compound because it contains sulfur, detrimental to aging, and resulting in the chipping off of paint, and the effect of orange skin discoloring.
