The pressure-activated sealant technology was originally developed in 1995 to seal leaks in the hydraulic systems of control lines and SCSSVs. Since then, the technology has been expanded to cure leaks in over 2000 operations. Seal-Tite International has developed a line of unique pressure activated sealants that are designed to seal even high pressure repair jobs such as wellhead and tubing hanger leaks- sustained casing pressure and microannulus leaks- salt dome storage cavern leaks- subsea connection and umbilical leaks- safety valve, production tubing and packer leaks- and flow line leaks in wells and hydraulic systems.

This state-of-the-art proprietary solution, which is compatible with both oil and glycol-based hydraulic fluids, solidifies only at the high point of differential pressure, so only the leak is sealed. As the reaction proceeds, the polymerized sealant plates out on the edges of the leak site and simultaneously links across to seal the leak. The resulting seal is a flexible bond across the leak site. Any excess sealant remains inert, in a liquid form, and will not clog the hydraulic system or other equipment. The environmentally approved sealant can be left in the system indefinitely or flushed out.
