With sagging used vehicle prices these days many owners are reluctant to spend too much on fixing those sneaky leaks in air conditioning systems that can sap their performance and be releasing environmentally damaging refrigerants into the atmosphere.
But as vehicles age, even little holes in evaporators, condensers and systems’ flexible tubing leaks under 300 microns will slowly drain the effectiveness of car, truck, van, 4wd and caravan installations and leave owners gasping for relief on warmer days.
But now, these irritating refrigerant losses can be permanently sealed for little more than a couple of hundred dollars using a new product that has been extensively proven in the world’s major automotive market, North America.
Super Seal Pro liquid formulation works by sealing refrigerant leaks from the inside reacting with the moisture in ambient air after being carried in solution with oil and refrigerant to the point where the leaks exit.
When the sealant comes in contact with the droplets of moisture created by escaping refrigerant, it forms a permanent low tensile crystalline structure that creates a barrier to prevent further losses.
In simple terms, it repairs a leak in a similar way as to how your body stops the bleeding of a cut.
Super Seal Pro distributed in Australia and New Zealand by GO Distribution is the new sealant technology from the Cliplight Manufacturing Co, which has served the automotive and industrial markets of North America for more than 25 years and has more than a million applications of Super Seal products to its credit.
It is designed for use with systems using flexible hose type connections or with open drive compressors. These include systems used in cars, trucks, buses, vans, 4wds, caravans, boats, trailers, farm machinery and refrigerated vehicles.
Super Seal Pro permanently seals leaks in condensers, evaporators, accumulators, compressors, gaskets, o-rings, metal lines and rubber hoses.
The sealant can be professionally installed in approximately one hour by a certified automotive air conditioning technician. The products are available through many reputable wholesalers.
