Kaneka MS Polymer? is a base resin for producing quality sealants and adhesives for construction and industry. Its unique properties enable MS Sealant (the sealant based on Kaneka MS Polymers) to deliver outstanding performance, widely recognized by applicators and architects throughout the world. The inherent properties of MS Sealant can be summarized as follows:
MS Sealant is easy to use: it can be extruded from cartridges with a low force even at low temperature. A continuous flow of sealant with stable viscosity is the norm. Furthermore, smoothing and tooling of the joint are easier with MS Sealant than with any other kind of sealant.
MS Sealants exhibit good primerless adhesion to a wide range of substrates that are commonly used in construction and industry, such as PVC, Aluminum, Glass, Steel, Ceramic, Plywood and many of the newly developed materials for construction.
The resistance to natural weathering such as rain and UV is one of the advantages of MS Sealant that allows use of the sealant outdoors ? even in adverse weather. MS Sealant shows no cracks after UV exposure. The elasticity of the sealant is maintained over time, even years after application.
HIGH-QUALITY MECHANICAL PROPERTIES
MS Sealant has excellent mechanical properties including both: stable elasticity over a wide temperature range (-40C to 100C) and long-term stability. MS technology enables formulators to customize from a very low modulus sealant with 100% modulus at 60psi, to a very high strength adhesive with lap shear strength of 1,500psi.
MS Sealant does not bubble on the surface at all. The surface of the sealant is kept smooth and intact. A constant and uninterrupted joint is easily achieved.
Excellent non-staining characteristics can be obtained with MS Sealant. Porous substrates used in construction, such as granite and marble, can be sealed with a wide range of MS Sealants with low risk of contaminating the stone surface.
Compatibility with many kinds of paint is appreciated by many users in industry and construction. MS Sealant is compatible with many types of paints and coatings. MS Sealant can immediately be painted over after application. The paint cures relatively quickly after a reasonable time.
MS Sealant can be used for a wide variety of applications. A single product can be used for waterproofing, bonding, sealing... and will adhere to different substrates at the same time. There is no need to buy a seperate sealant for each application.
