DAP Adhesive and Sealant Products Expanding Into Australia

This week The Finishing Touch Owner/Manager, Steve De Gregorio met with DAP Representative, Manager Export and International Sales, J. Eduardo Seuc to discuss the expansion of the DAP Touch’n’Seal products in Australia.

Currently the Finishing Touch are distributors for the range of sealing products and applicators, but to date have been concentrating on supplying products specifically suited for adhesion of their lightweight, decorative mouldings to their residential building clients. Following recent discussions with DAP’s Representative they will be embarking on an expansion program for the distribution of the DAP products in Australia. As part of this expansion they will be targeting the refrigeration and air-conditioning industry, landscape and construction suppliers and window installers.

The DAP  Touch n Seal Gun Foam II is the product currently being sold to the Finishing Touch building clients to use as an adhesive for decorative mouldings, along with the Sharpshooter D Gun foam applicator and has been very well received. One of the new target markets, window installers working on major construction projects will find the No-Warp Foam Window & Door Insulating Sealant ideal due to its low expansion and pressure during curing. They will find that windows and doors won’t bow or jamb because it exerts up to 95% less bowing pressure than competitive foams.

The Refrigeration and air-conditioning industry need a reliable, effective foam that creates a strong seal to retain the air temperature in the room created by refrigeration. The Finishing Touch will introduce the Touch n Seal All Seasons Polyurethane Foam Sealant to this industry, as it is designed to fill and seal cracks and gaps up to 38mm wide with no shrinkage and can be applied at low temperatures, as low as -6.6C. Landscapers will also be introduced to a new product, the Black Foam Polyurethane Foam Sealant, used to bond landscaped rocks in rockeries and rock pools. It blends in, doesn’t require painting, won’t discolour and is UV resistant.

All enquiries about these products should be made directly to the Finishing Touch.
