Sashco Rolls Out Contractor-Customized Caulk

Sashco eXact Color Sealant

Sashco Sealants has introduced eXact Color Sealant, which allows contractors to create custom color caulk. The product is the latest by Sashco, manufacturer of high-performance caulks and sealants.

“Prior to eXact Color Sealant, there has never been an easy way to create custom color caulks,” the company said in a release. “Other custom color caulks are complicated and require special mixing equipment.

The new product “is the first to offer users an easy and fast way to create custom color sealants to match any painting job or create beautiful contrasts,” Sashco says.

With eXact Color comes a new professional accessory: paint shaker holder inserts for use in mixing larger batches of the sealant in paint departments and paint stores.

No special tools are needed to mix the sealant, Sashco says. “Custom colors are created by simply following eXact Color’s mixing instructions using latex paint, water-based solid stain, or universal pigments,” it says.

The water-based caulk is easy to apply and provides excellent adhesion and elasticity, the company says.

The cartridge holder insert allows professional paint departments or paint dealers to mix up to six cartridges of the sealant at once using a standard Gyroscopic, Oscillating, and Vortex style paint shaker machine. The inserts allow coloring of thousands of cartridges of caulk, the company says.

“These new holder inserts are effective, rugged and extremely easy to use,” said Sashco vice president and technical director Wayne Summons. “They do not in any way interfere with the normal operation of the paint mixer or paint shaker.”

Sashco is definitely pushing the envelope with their claims. "Prior to eXact there has never been as easy way to create custom color caulks...others are complicated and require special mixing equipment." A little research on the part of Sashco would have revealed a premixed terpolymer caulk available in 250 standard plus custom colors and has been on the market for 20+ years
