This company, a division of Franklin International, has expanded its new line of FilterFAB filter assembly adhesives to include a thick, quick and versatile sealant developed primarily to bond pleated glass or paper media to the frames of air intake panel filters. FilterFAB 150 is a fiber-filled, vinyl acrylic copolymer sealant that can blend high-viscosity and high-solids materials into a thick formula that reportedly dries quickly and remains flexible over time. The new sealant’s instant set time can eliminate the need for clamping, simplifying and accelerating filter production.

The product can adhere to frames made from materials including steel, wood, plastic and aluminum. Although its primary purpose is to bond the media to the frames (the sealant is typically applied to the trough of the frame, and the assembly then wrapped around the pleated media), it can also serve to seal joints in a range of indoor and outdoor HVAC duct systems.
