Adhesives and sealants are used in a number of applications, including building adhesives or as joint sealants. Building adhesives combine different materials, requiring good adhesion and strength. Sealants must meet many basic requirements, such as adhesion, resistance to changes in temperature. In addition, they must be compatible with many building materials and have to be weather-resistant and elastic.
NOVARES resins in combination with reactive systems (e.g. epoxy, acrylates, polyurethanes and polysulfides) offer the following properties:
The liquid resins of the LC series have been developed as modifiers for reactive resin systems based on epoxy resins, polyurethanes, polysulfides and acrylates. They show low viscosity and are available in a wide polarity spectrum.
They exhibit the following advantages
In bathrooms and kitchens, there is a strong demand for adhesives that impart heat, moisture and water resistance. The hydrophobic character of NOVARES resins has a positive effect on the water resistance of the adhesive. As a modifier in reactive PU adhesives, they improve the open time and adjust the mixing viscosity.
