Leakproof is which type of material if full in the water of polythene and we exert a kill in that polythene then no leak exists that is leak-proof material.

What is fullering process?

HEMANT VISHWAKARMA said:   5 years ago
I think that is fullering.

While caulking is to remove burr between rivet head and sheet.

Caulking is nothing but a waterproof filler and sealant, used in building work and repairs.

CAULKING is the process by which we seal the holes form during rivet and LEAK PROOF is also same to caulking. Caulking is to make the material leak proof by sealing the holes formed during rivet.

Rivert joints were used in ships. Due to the caulking used in rivet joints, won't the water pressure in the sea leak inside the ship.

To make joint steam tight caulking is used. This is done by using caulking tool which burns down the edges of the rivet.
