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 many of EMSEAL’s silicone-coated products (Colorseal/Seismic Colorseal, Horizontal Colorseal, Seismic Colorseal-DS, Emshield WFR1, Emshield WFR2, Emseal WFR3 and QuietJoint).
Sikasil® WS-295 is the standard silicone color choice. Optional silicone colors are also available from Dow and Pecora. Note: Production times average an addition one to two weeks when using non-Sikasil® silicone coatings. All colors are pre-tinted and pre-mixed.

IMPORTANT: All colors depicted here are approximate. Actual colors will vary depending on the quality of the screen on which you are viewing this chart. Contact EMSEAL for actual silicone-applied color charts. When specifying or ordering, please remember to state explicitly both the silicone manufacturer’s name and the color. (e.g. “Sikasil WS-295 Limestone”). If the silicone manufacturer is not specified, the standard Sikasil WS-295 color will be used on similar names.
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 Quarry Red 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 Sikasil® WS-295 Deck Gray. The underside is coated with a flexible intumescent coating which is Red.
The underside can additionally be overcoated with any of the silicone colors selected from the above color charts.
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.
