Does anybody knows of some rubber to be used as dry couplant?
I have to inspect a compossite and it can't get wet.

Re: US Dry Couplant
Dear Alejandro,

Sonemat sells dry couplant fluid (a 2 part mix so you can set it into whatever shape you want). It is efficient, but not as hardwaring as some couplants.

Use the www.sonemat.com website to contact and get prices.

Mark.
