Mixing two-component flexible cementitious sealing slurries on-site immediately before use may soon become a thing of the past. A redispersible polymer powder has been developed that enables the formulation of one-component products. Polymer powders of this type can also be used successfully, in other ‘elastic' applications, such as highly flexible tile adhesives
A new acrylic latex, developed for use primarily in "true clear" sealant applications, sets new performance standards for total solids/low shrinkage, dry time, rate of clearing, and ultimate color and clarity. Additional benefits of this caulk/sealant binder are low thickener demand and very low surface tack in formulated products
Membrane switches can be found everywhere in our day-to-day lives - from the control pad on a microwave to teh remote control for a hospital bed. But a switch is only as good as its components, and pressure-sensitive adhesives play a crucial role in ensuring component success
Low-pressure vacuum plasmas have typically been used to treat two- and three-dimensional plastic objects and polymer films. However, the recent introduction of high-density atmospheric plasma for film, foil, paper, foam, nonwoven and woven substrate applications has had a significant impact on the surfaces of these materials at considerably lower capitalization costs.
