Technology & Chemistry

Chemistry

Seal Bond™ offers a variety of product solutions based on multiple technology platforms including Epoxy, MS, Hybrid, Urethane, Acrylic PSA, Silicone and Butyl chemistries. Our product development focus is on matching 1 and 2-component moisture cure formulations with market or specific customer application needs. Typically we are providing cross linking chemistry that is environmentally friendly with a wide range of adhesion to many substrates, elastomeric, with good to excellent weathering characteristics.

Technology

ELASTOMERIC TECHNOLOGY

Many Seal Bond™ products are formulated to provide flexible, or elastomeric, properties upon cure. The ability of our products to flex under various conditions of stress, and/or over a range of environmental conditions, yields extremely high performance.

Seal Bond™ products that exhibit elastomeric (versus rigid) properties upon cure, offer all, or some, of the following advantages:

  • Compensation of movement due to varying thermal expansion of substrates
  • Vibration and sound dampening
  • Uniform stress distribution – eliminate localized stress, evident with mechanical fasteners
  • High impact resistance
  • Compensation for torsion forces
  • No drilling, tapping, welding or other damage to component surfaces
  • Prevention of contact corrosion

MOISTURE CURE TECHNOLOGY

Many Seal Bond™ products are based on polymer technology that reacts (cross-links) when exposed to moisture. The moisture source may be a substrate such as wood or concrete or humidity in the atmosphere.

Some Seal Bond™ product users may choose to introduce a controlled source of moisture, such as misting, or utilize a humidity controlled assembly area. Rate of cure is typically dependent upon the specific formula, application, substrate and atmospheric conditions.
