High-performing line of gap-filling adhesives launched in Canada
 
TORONTO, July 31, 2015 – Want to ensure a long-lasting, professional finish on all of your construction and renovation projects? A new line of premium sealants and caulks just launched in Canada provides exceptional adhesion, elasticity and durability to complete the toughest jobs.
 
Already a best-seller in the U.S., TOP GUN® Sealants and Caulks are now available across Canada exclusively at all DULUX® and BÉTONEL® stores.
 
With six flagship products in the line, "the Top Gun brand is all about making the caulking and sealing experience easier for users, while ensuring top-notch end results on any project – from filling gaps in windows, doors, walls and trim, to tubs, sinks and tiles, to siding, masonry, brick, concrete, wood and metal,” said Mark Hembree, senior brand manager – Top Gun, a brand of PPG Architectural Coatings.
 
“All Top Gun products are made using state-of-the-art, fine-grind technology and the highest-quality acrylic and latex polymers, resulting in sealants and caulks that have no air pockets in the tubes or dripping when the trigger is let go,” he said. “The super-fine consistency of the products provide ultra-smooth and silky applications, and they are simple to use.”
 
In third-party tests, Top Gun sealants and caulks were shown not to crack and had less shrinkage, greater elasticity, faster drying time and longer shelf life (24 months versus 12 months in some cases) compared to competing brands, in addition to being backed by a satisfaction guarantee, Hembree explained.
 
The six Top Gun products include:
 
Top Gun 400 Elastomeric Acrylic Urethane Sealant (white and clear): Known for its exceptional durability, adhesion and paintability, Top Gun 400 sealant is a low-volatile organic compound (VOC) product made with DUPONT™ KEVLAR® fiber. Developed for interior or exterior use, it creates an airtight, water- and mildew-resistant seal that reduces dirt pickup, is ultraviolet (UV) exposure-safe and will not crack or discolour.
 
Top Gun 350 All Purpose Silicone Sealant (white and clear): Exclusive to Canada, premium, sanitary-grade Top Gun 350 sealant is formulated to weather the cold Canadian winters. An all-purpose and acid-curing product, it works well on both interior and exterior projects by providing a watertight, flexible seal that won’t crack or crumble.
 
Top Gun 300 Elastomeric Siliconized Acrylic Sealant (white): Geared for both interior and exterior use, Top Gun 300 sealant is a premium product that forms a highly flexible and durable bond. Easily paintable, it produces an airtight and water-resistant seal that provides strong protection from environmental conditions.
 
Top Gun 250 Modified Acrylic Sealant (white): A top choice for painters, this high-quality sealant delivers fast dry-over time, allowing for either immediate spray painting or brush painting in only 30 minutes after caulking. Applied on both interior and exterior surfaces, it provides a long-lasting, flexible waterproof bond that is guaranteed not to crack.
 
Top Gun 200 Siliconized Acrylic Sealant (white, clear, almond, gray and brown): This professional-grade sealant adheres strongly to most surfaces, securing a tough, weatherproof seal. For use both on interior and exterior jobs, it is completely paintable once cured.
 
Top Gun Adhesive Sealant (white): Perfect for showers, sinks, countertops, ceramic tile and plumbing fixtures, this odorless product blends premium water-based acrylic latex with silicone to deliver a flexible, crack-resistant seal. Once cured, the sealant is mildew-resistant and fully paintable.
 
“No matter what the job, it’s important not to cut corners,” Hembree said. “The type of caulk used can make or break a job, so it’s important to invest in a top-quality product to keep customers satisfied and coming back for more.”
 
Top Gun products range in price from $2.19 to $7.99. To complete the job, Dulux and Bétonel Paint stores also offer a complete line of caulking guns and hand tools. More information can be found at www.dulux.ca/pro/products/Caulks-and-Sealants.
 
The Top Gun brand is a line of PPG Architectural Coatings, a business of PPG Industries, the world’s leading coatings company.
