Hercules Shutout manhole sealant and lubricant
Hercules, a part of the Oatey family of companies, launched Shutout, a nontoxic, universal manhole sealant and lubricant that reduces inflow and makes manhole maintenance easier.

It adheres to dry, wet, hot and cold surfaces, offering optimal protection in both freezing and high temperatures. Using Shutout requires no additional training and only takes a couple of minutes to apply, including preparation and cleanup. Applied with a caulking tube, Shutout can be easily transported for use as part of regular operations and maintenance activities. Shutout also makes it easier to open manhole covers, providing lubrication that prevents rust and corrosion between the two metal surfaces, decreasing the force required to open the cover. 800-321-9532;
