Products or Machinery

Supplier of sealants for the insulation glass production and automotive markets.

PRC, BOSTIK, TOTALSEAL, NOVATHERM products meet the needs of industrials all over the world with their very high mechanical and chemical properties. They satisfy the most rigorous international requirements and enable our customers to match their countries specifications.

Company Background / History

It is more than 50 years that PRC and its licensee Le Joint Français have supplied the first elastic sealants based on Polysulfide for production of double glazing units.

More recently our company has increased its product range by taking over the activities of BOSTIK in the I.G. market with sealants based on polyurethane and hot melt butyl. These sealants which provide vapour and gas impermeability have permitted double glazing to become a principal benefit in all types of buildings. Recently, a new system of unit assembled with a thermoplastic spacer has been launched and our company has developped such a spacer with international qualification with our polyurethane or Polysulfide based sealants as the secondary seal.

The materials conform to the very strict International Standards, the American ASTM-E-773-81, the French NF P78-451, the German DIN1286 Sections 1 and 2, the Italian UNI 10593/2, the British BS 5713 and the European CEN EN 1279 etc..
It is therefore possible for all of our customers to obtain approval and standards markings from the certified organizations within their own country.

With the brand names of PRC, BOSTIK and TOTALSEAL, we can offer our customers the product that is best suited to their needs, with our range of sealants based on Polysulfide, Permapol ®, Polyurethane, hot melt butyl, Primary seal butyl and Butyl for thermoplastic spacer (TPS).
