Silicone Bellows Color Choices

When your aesthetic design calls for color coordinating the visible face of the expansion joint with the surrounding substrate surface—EMSEAL offers the solution.

A wide range of colors are available for the all of EMSEAL’s silicone-coated family of products (Colorseal/Seismic ColorsealHorizontal Colorseal, , Seismic Colorseal-DS) as well as for Emshield WFR2 and Emshield DFR2.

Below are the standard silicone colors available from EMSEAL.

Custom Colors Programs

Here’s more information on our custom colors programs.

When the expansion joint system is dual sided, Seismic Colorseal DS and EMSHIELD WFR2, each side is offered as a separate color choice. (For example, WFR2 can be manufactured with a rustic brick face showing toward the building’s exterior and a sandstone face showing toward the interior.) The same applies to Universal-90 transitions which can have separate colors for the inside and outside faces.

Emshield DFR3, SecuritySeal SSF3

3-hour fire-rated Emshield DFR3 and SecuritySeal SSF3 are manufactured with a silicone coating on the top side. The standard coating on the traffic or floor side is coated with Pecora 301 traffic-grade silicone which is available in Gray. The underside is coated with a flexible intumescent coating which is Red.

The underside can additionally be overcoated with any of the standard Pecora 890NST or Dow 790 silicones selected from the above color charts.

Emshield WFR3

3-hour fire-rated Emshield WFR3 for wall expansion joints are manufactured with a silicone coating on both sides, applied over a flexible intumescent coating. The outer silicone coatings can be from the same color or can be different colors on each face.
