MINI-SHOE™ Primary Seal for Steel IFRs


The MINI-SHOE™ Primary Shoe Seal was developed for steel internal floating roofs where tight rim spaces are encountered. The MINI-SHOE™ has excellent chemical compatibility for nearly any product stored in a floating roof tank when combined with HMT’s PTFE laminated flouropolymer vapor barrier fabric.

The MINI-SHOE™ Seal has an excellent pressure-application system with multiple points of pressure and custom hardened steel that maintains a tight seal for years to come.

For a long lasting seal that has the ability to operate in narrow rim spaces, choose the MINI-SHOE™ Primary Shoe Seal.
