What are Polyurethane Adhesives?

January 9, 2017

Polyurethane adhesives use a series of urethane and carbamate chains to form strong linkages between plastic polymer units, yet there’s no fixed composition inferred here. Instead, the chemical compound is customizable. The central polymer islands work with chain extenders and urethane linkages to deliver incredible bonding strength, but that’s only the beginning, for strong substances […]

Benefits of Using Eternabond for Non-Pressurized Leaks

December 7, 2016

Eternabond is a specially formulated sealant that’s designed to produce a long-lasting bond, but let’s not undersell the product, for its sealing power is characterized by some extraordinary features. Let’s begin with the microsealant’s aptitude for stoppering non-pressurized leaks. It’s a headlining feature, one where the compound exhibits enough strength to stop seeping water in […]

What is Viscosity and Why Does it Matter in Glue and Adhesives?

December 1, 2016

The viscosity of an uncured fluid tells a chemical designer a great deal about its qualities. Fundamentally, this gelatinous quality effects everything about the fixative agent, everything from the way it flows to the time it takes to cure. In truth, no sticky stuff worth its name should ever be considered fully formulated unless this […]

The Importance of Stress Analysis in Circular Cylinders

November 17, 2016

Stress analysis is the art of assessing the strengths and weaknesses that propagate within a material or structure. It’s also a parameter that stands tall in the foam sealant industry, for a reliable seal is expected to withstand conflicting mechanical forces across all three planes of motion. This important feature is sought after when cylinders […]

The Importance of Adhesive Strength in Mirror Mounting Tapes

November 2, 2016

Sidestep the seven years bad luck adage by evaluating the adhesive strength in mirror mounting tapes. In a technology-dominated global infrastructure, no one believes in bad luck anymore, but why take any chances? On a more serious note, reflective room accents are breakable. Glass panels can break, and they will shatter, so a reliable mounting […]

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 […]
