Why Green Glue Products Become Necessities in Soundproofing

October 24, 2016

Green glue products are amorphous in shape, but they cure to deliver a sharply clarified list of essential features. They stop loud noises, so their soundproofing credentials are unimpeachable. But, more than this, they also put this once expensive enterprise within arm’s reach of every homeowner. Consequently, soundproofing technology no longer belongs solely to recording […]

Applications and Uses of Caulk Silicone

October 10, 2016

Today’s sealants shield our finest structures with a level of armored proficiency that guarantees internalized site protection. They’re anchored by caulk silicone, a product that’s famed for its sealant backbone, a feature that’s employed in literally hundreds of applications. Gel-like in consistency, caulking can waterproof anything, plus it bonds well, cures quickly, and is compatible […]

Applications and Most Common Uses of Polyurethane Foam Spacers

September 21, 2016

Malleability and semi-rigidity dictate the mechanical properties of polyurethane foam spacers, and it’s this innate capacity for establishing space between two objects that classifies the foam as an invaluable tool in the construction industry. In summarizing the applications of this spacing system, our first stop is the glazing industry. Binding Windows to Frames with Polyurethane […]

How to Determine Poor Sealant and Adhesive Quality?

August 25, 2016

Adhesive compounds rely on a uniform state change, a fully hardened or cured structural change that’s generated by a widespread chemical reaction. Unlike a fastener, we can’t just jiggle a component and see if it’s loose. Neither can we spot a crack in a weld, for this is a wholly chemical bond. Instead, poor sealant […]

Factors for Consideration When Installing Sealants in a Cold Environment

August 10, 2016

Low winter temperatures make everything contract, which is alright for us because we can just pull our coats tight and weather the cold. It’s different for building materials, though, because these materials literally shrink when the cold weather arrives. Fortunately, versatile sealants are imbued with compressible characteristics, so they can hang tight when contraction event […]

Things to Consider When Installing Sealants in a Hot Environment

July 26, 2016

Modern sealants are equipped with unique material characteristics. They bond any surface to any other surface, deliver enviable elastomeric properties, and they can withstand any number of intrusive factors. That latter feature includes everything from acoustic attenuation to thermal resistivity. Reliable by design, we should note that the chemical stuff is still reactive to heat […]

The Importance of Tensile Bond Strength in Adhesives

July 13, 2016

Adhesives are infused with key fixative attributes that target binding prowess and sealant incorruptibility. In short, the chemical binding compound discharges promptly, cures quickly, and anchors with undeniable strength. Now, a purchasing agent is bound to ask about both of these features and more, but the underlying principle driving these queries always comes back to […]

Differences between Water and Solvent Based Adhesives

June 23, 2016

Chemical bonding technology is dominated by two adhesive families, two distinctly different surface-joining formulations. There’s the viscous and potentially toxic group, a series of compounds we call solvent based adhesives. In the other corner of the adhesion ring, water based adhesives provide an alternative bonding option. The two groups are undoubtedly both accomplished joining agents, […]

High and Low Modulus of Elasticity: What are the Differences?

June 8, 2016

A design engineer’s job is to fabricate substances for specific applications and ensure the properties of the substance match a job at hand. Now, of all these material attributes, the high and low modulus of elasticity is tougher than most to quantify because substance elasticity is a dynamic property. In measuring elasticity, we need to […]
