Permatex Easy-To-Use Tubes for Ultra Series RTV Gasket Makers

Permatex's new, easy-to-use tubes for its Ultra Series RTV Gasket Maker line make it easier to apply the product evenly and consistently. The new tubes also offer benefits to retailers.

Permatex Ultra Series Tubes GpPermatex, a leading innovator in chemical technology for automotive maintenance and repair, has just introduced new, easy-to-use tubes for its Ultra Series RTV Gasket Maker line. The new package provides the same industry-proven Ultra Series formulations, but makes it easier to apply the product evenly and consistently.

Reduced display footprint
The new tubes also offer valuable benefits to retailers. Designed to hang directly from a peg, they eliminate the need for a blister card and use significantly less space in the planogram. In addition, the tubes feature a screw-on cap that allows upright storage on a shelf. And with the elimination of a blister card, there’s less waste to accumulate in landfills.

According to Andrew Charleston, Senior Product Manager at Permatex, “Our new tube technology takes our Ultra Series RTV line to the next level. The tubes are made with a multilayer plastic film that makes the tube very flexible and durable, so it resists cracking and separation. The new packaging also provides a better barrier against moisture than traditional foil tubes and helps preserve the RTV silicone longer. The technician gets maximum performance from the product and the retailer gets better shelf life. Because the tubes do not crinkle, the interior stays smooth. This prevents product from being trapped inside and makes it easier to get every last drop out of the tube. The screw-on cap fits securely over the nozzle and keeps unused product from curing prematurely. The new packages contain the same performance proven Ultra Series formulas and deliver the same amount of product as our original Ultra Series tubes. This advanced tube technology has been very successful in the pharmaceutical and health care industries, and now we are bringing it to the automotive market.”

Charleston also noted, “Innovation in formula and form has been a key Permatex attribute for over a century, and the new Ultra Series tubes add to our tradition of giving our customers solutions of the highest value.”
