Whether you tackle occasional DIY projects or you work full-time in an auto repair shop, you probably have multiple tubes of silicone sealant lying around. And while RTV silicone is an ideal go-to product for a variety of jobs, there’s such an overwhelming assortment to choose from that it’s hard to know where to start. One RTV type may become brittle at high temperatures, while another breaks down when exposed to fuel, and yet another option is only available in a massive tube. This is where Victor Reinz® comes in. Victor Reinz, a global leader in sealing products and gaskets, offers Reinzosil®, a one-tube solution that takes the place of over a dozen RTV varieties. But does one tube of Reinzosil really do it all?
The Globally-Preferred RTV Sealant
While Reinzosil makes big claims about versatility and durability, it backs those claims up with intensive testing and proven results. If the primary thing you’re looking for in an RTV sealant is quality, Reinzosil delivers. Reinzosil is exceptionally resistant to high and low temperatures, remaining pliable and maintaining shape from -58°F to 482°F, and briefly up to 608°F. The competition becomes brittle and disintegrates at these temps due to inferior plasticizers such as calcium carbonate or limestone.
Reinzosil also offers excellent resistance to fluids, including mineral oils and synthetic oils, lubricants, fuels, diesel oil, greases, water, and detergents. When exposed to these fluids, this highly elastic universal sealing compound maintains a reliable bond—even on rough or uneven surfaces.
Competitive sealants can corrode surfaces like brass, or damage sensitive oxygen sensors. In test after test, neutral-curing Reinzosil shows no corrosion, and this RTV sealant won’t harm sensors.
Easy to Stock and Use
With Reinzosil, you don’t need over a dozen different tubes of RTV on-hand. Reinzosil is available in three just-right sizes: the DIY-friendly 70 ml tube, a 200 ml gas-charged canister for larger jobs, and a 310-ml option for industrial or commercial applications. The largest option fits commercially-available cartridge guns, so no separate ejection gun is necessary. Offering only the options you need means that shop owners can avoid ordering hassles, and everyone can save shelf space and dollars.
Precise application is so simple with the 70-ml tube. When you purchase a box of Reinzosil, you’ll find an easy-to-use Squeezer Key and a graduated nozzle packaged with the tube. The nozzle can be snipped according to your exact project requirements for a very thin or thicker bead of sealant. The recycled-plastic applicator key is your ticket to a steady, even application and to leaving zero waste in the tube.
Reinzosil Is the Proven Solution
The right permanently-elastic, universal sealing compound can be the solution to so many problems, from sealing gaps up to 0.15 mm in a high-heat environment to replacing traditional paper and cork gaskets. Save the frustration of using the wrong sealant and choose the one with the durability, flexibility, and versatility that’s made it a favorite RTV among car repair specialists and OE manufacturers alike.
Reinzosil is just one of the high-performance sealing products engineered by experts at Victor Reinz and distributed by Dana—the same global company that brings you the top-quality drivetrain solutions you know and trust from Spicer. Try a tube or a canister of Victor Reinz Reinzosil RTV silicone, and see for yourself how one sealant really can do it all.
