Thioplast - the polysulfide polymer for superior chemical and solvent resistant sealants and adhesives

Thioplast G, a liquid polysulfide polymer, is the leading product used to make polysulfide sealants and help manufacturers fully meet and exceed the uncompromising standards of the aerospace industry. 
 
Polysulfide sealants have excellent adhesive property and gas tightness which guarantee a superior insulation against cold and heat from the outside to save energy. Elasticity and pronounced chemical resistance are additional key properties of polysulfide sealants. 
 
In addition to the aerospace industry you find polysulfide-based sealants performing exceptionally well at gas stations, bridges, facades and runways. 
 
In our portfolio we also have the Thioplast EPS product line. An epoxy terminated polysulfide polymer with low viscosity, which combines the excellent properties of Thioplast G with those of epoxy resins. Thioplast EPS is used in adhesives for steel, aluminum, concrete and automotive applications.

Do you want to lower your costs and make your sealants and adhesives lighter? With Expancel Microspheres in the mix this can happen

A sealant that fails can have disastrous consequences in a building construction. You want to make sure it keeps its flexibility and durability. Our microspheres are compressible and resilient and will give you that flexibility that you are looking for.  
 
Are you a producer of PU, silicone or acrylic sealants? Then Expancel is especially suitable, but other systems are also possible. By varying the addition levels of Expancel Microspheres into your sealant or adhesive you can modify properties such as viscosity, adhesion, elongation and hardness. Even if you are happy with the properties you already have, you can benefit from Expancel. Use smaller amounts and with the volume the microspheres provide it will still mean cost savings on other raw materials and a lower weight of your sealant or adhesive. 

When used in waterborne adhesive formulations, Levasil Colloidal Silica can significantly increase the thermal stability and mechanical strength of bonded joints 

Adhesives offer many advantages over other binding techniques. They facilitate the binding of different materials, distribute stress across the joint more efficiently, improve the esthetic outcome and they increase design flexibility. 
 
Depending on the specific application our Levasil CT products can be added to improve heat resistance and shear strength and to reduce drying time. In addition, colloidal silica can be used to adjust the viscosity of adhesive formulations, without needing additional thickeners.

Our cellulose ethers adhesives for wallpaper applies easily, exhibit excellent wet tack and positioning properties and have a more than sufficient open time

Our CMC cellulose ethers for wallpaper adhesives is a granular product, dissolving readily without lump formation. They are delivered as an off-white; nontoxic almost odorless product and a variety of grades are available with excellent handling and adhesion properties designed to deal with all kinds of wallpaper and surfaces. 
 
Due to their excellent properties the base products can be used as a standalone adhesive. To optimize requirements the product grades can also be used in blends.
