ELEVATOR EXPO 2017: WACKER Presents High-Strength Adhesive for Assembly of Elevator Reinforcing Ribs
Shanghai, Jun 07, 2017
WACKER is presenting ELASTOSIL® MS7050, a high-strength adhesive, for the first time at ELEVATOR EXPO 2017. This product does not only feature high strength and high modulus properties, but also provides strong adhesion to many substrates without any primers. As it is based on WACKER’s unique alpha-silane-terminated polymer, it does not contain hazardous substances, such as isocyanic acid compounds and solvents. ELASTOSIL® MS7050 is especially suitable to serve as a high-strength and high-elastic adhesive for industrial applications, such as the assembly of elevator reinforcing ribs. ELEVATOR EXPO 2017 takes place in Shanghai from June 7 to 9.
ELASTOSIL® MS7050 is a new one-component, alkoxy neutral, silane-modified polymer which cures at room temperature to a network with very high adhesion strength and elastic modulus. As a WACKER’s unique alpha-silane-terminated polymer, it neither contains isocyanic acid compounds and solvents, nor is it catalysed by organotin, which makes the product environmentally-friendly. Other advantages of the alpha-silane modification include primerless adhesion, fast and sufficient crosslinking, a non-sticky surface after curing, as well as excellent UV-resistance, anti-aging and anti-moisture properties. In addition, ELASTOSIL® MS7050 provides good adhesion to many substrates and is easy to dye and polish on its surface.
ELASTOSIL® MS7050 is especially suitable for high-strength adhesion in industry assembly. In elevator manufacturing, it can be used to replace the traditional welding process for the assembly of reinforcing ribs, where it does not only guarantee a strong bonding, but also provides an elegant appearance and easy process.
