HUNTINGTON PARK, CA, Jan. 26, 2006 -- Celebrating 50 years as a concrete joint sealant brand, RAM-NEK was originally created by Ken Snyder of Houston, TX, the founder of K.T. Snyder Co. Inc., also of Houston. Snyder founded the company in 1955. The RAM-NEK brand is currently owned by Henry Company, which is led by president Steven L. Gast.

RAM-NEK®, BUTYL-NEK®, and RUB'R-NEK LTM®, are the best known brands of preformed plastic sealants for creating watertight concrete joints on storm sewer pipe, box culverts, manholes, septic tanks, utility and burial vaults, and wet wells.

RAM-NEK has been a well known concrete joint sealant brand for 50 years. RAM-NEK products have excellent long-term performance, and although RAM-NEK can be used in a very wide range of applications, Henry Company also offers BUTYL-NEK and RUB'R-NEK LTM sealants for use in fluctuating and extreme climate conditions, as Tommy Harreld Sales Manager for RAM-NEK explains.

"No matter the climate, job situation or the joint application Henry Company has a concrete joint sealant available to meet your specific needs. Henry Company helps its customers ensure that the correct concrete joint sealant is selected regardless of job contingencies or special conditions, like jobs where fuels or oils are present," Harreld explains.

All Henry concrete joint sealants are easy to set and provide immediate, visible confirmation that the sealant is in place. The sealants are intended for use in horizontal and vertical applications, and the sealant will conform to smooth or irregular shapes. Backfilling and compaction can begin immediately after the pipes are fitted and the sealant is properly compressed.
