Environmentally Benign Couplants

Soundsafe®

Soundsafe® is a silicone-free, environmentally benign high-performance couplant formulated for use in overhead vertical and horizontal applications where concern for the environment is a primary consideration. It possesses high humectant levels to slow drying, increase acoustic impedance and provide transducer lubrication. Soundsafe® contains ferrous corrosion inhibitors with a relative effectiveness rating of 75. Soundsafe® has an operating temperature range of 0º - 200º F and is compatible with most composites and metals, except magnesium and magnesium alloys which should be pretreated before use.
