Silicone/Urethane Hybrids


Silicone/Urethane Hybrids

Silyl Terminated Polyurethanes (STPU)silicone hybrid molecule 

BASIC USE:

  • Broad use in construction, institutional, industrial, DIY, automotive, marine and transportation markets (not recommended for structural sealant glazing applications)

BENEFITS:

  • No CO2 evolution associated with single component urethane.  Less incidents of swelling or bubbling in joints where moisture is present.
  • No isocyanate content
  • Excellent adhesion and movement capabilities
  • Good UV and heat stability
  •  Paintable
  • Exceptional bonding to most construction substrates including plastics, metals, wood and stone
  • Can exceed ± 50% joint movement capability (ASTM C 920) even in low temperatures
  • Contain little to no solvent; contribute to less VOC; yield very low to no odors compared to other chemistries

LIMITATIONS:  

  • Not recommended for structural sealant glazing applications
