ODL Inc. (ODL) has committed to eliminating the use of wet glaze in its frame-and-seal products within the next few years. They are proud to introduce Resolve sealant, a foam seal that offers quality application and long-term performance when compared to traditional glazing methods.
Resolve is the result of an automated application process that creates a one-part thermoset foam seal, securing doorglass in its place. Currently, Resolve is used in the decorative doorglass category of products made by ODL. The material even allows for repositioning during installation. Dry sealants also avoid the inconsistency and messiness that often come with wet glaze applications.
Benefits of using Resolve:
- A more successful doorglass installation
- Elimination of ooze-out, resulting in a cleaner working area and finished product
- Pre-finishing process
- Fewer service calls and warranty issues
The technology is air and water resistant due to its uniform bead size and continuous-layer application. It won’t degrade over time and through changing climate conditions, and does not have a sticky element to attract dirt and grime. It is also paint and stain friendly and adherence performance is not at all affected by overspray.
Additionally, Resolve seals are reusable. The entire frame won’t need to be replaced if the doorglass is damaged or no longer usable. This factor, along with consistent application and the quality of the product, means fewer warranty claims and maintenance needs for consumers.
