Fixtech (Short for Fixing Technology) was started in Australia due to the opportunity of the market seeking a non-yellowing white marine sealant.
Fixtech was the first to launch a non-yellowing white sealant in Australia based on modified PU technology just launched in Europe. But within a year, the sealant showed signs of deterioration due to our high UV radiation, yet in Europe, the product was performing well. We have always believed that if you keep doing what you have always done, how can you expect different results? So we reformulated away from the traditional PU base used by so many other existing manufacturers that suffer in our harsh Australian and Asian climate, and reformulated a product base that offered superior UV resistance, instant paintable, no toxins and no solvents, and had superior primer-less bonding, and Fixtech Sealants were born.
25 years of technology, and 6 years later, we have grown at a remarkable rate, with thanks to our excellent chemists, dedicated staff and loyal customers that tell us what they want. Through our Fixtech offices in Australia, South East Asia and Far East Asia, and our proactive distributors from the UAE through to China, we are supplying satisfied customers a superior sealant and adhesive product range that bonds like no other, and supported by excellent personal technical support and the highest personal customer service levels, we aim to out perform our customers expectations.
Fixtech's goal is to offer shipwrights, production boat builders, marine repairers and industrial end users a high quality specific product. We have a high quality product range with technical assistance as required.
Fixtech offers the best quality range of products to you that is possible, not only for health and safety reasons, we are also setting new standards for UV resistance and colour stability, chalking resistance, product user friendliness, strength, paintability and longevity.
