WACKER: Hybrid Polymers for Structural Adhesives

July 31, 2012

This company is scheduled to present new hybrid polymers for structural adhesive bonds at the World Adhesive & Sealant Conference, which will take place September 18-21 in Paris. The polymers are based on alpha-silane technology and are available as grades of the new GENIOSIL® XB product line. They reportedly cure on contact with atmospheric moisture to form thermosets, thus achieving the high Shore D strength needed for structural adhesives. This can provide adhesives manufacturers with an alternative to traditional binder materials.

Adhesive binders based on GENIOSIL XB reportedly pose no health risks, meet high technical requirements and offer manufacturers a range of formulation options.
