hi well i've got the art of sealing them down really good,,i've added a few twists to some fairly reliable techniques that pre-empt the finish sealers from pushing through the nipple...haven't had any issues since i've adopted it...we have traced down that 99% of the problems were tiny pinholes developed from the air pushing through the sealants that didn't have enough cure time on them

those look like alpina's system that i wrote about several years ago,,,i will make one more attempt to do business with them,,,wish me well.,,woody
