Abstract

The new silane-terminated polymers GENIOSIL® XM 20 and GENIOSIL® XM 25 open up applications in the adhesives and sealants sector from which silane-crosslinking polymers had been excluded until now. The new polymers are suitable as binders for one-component adhesives and sealants and offer many different formulation options. In the fully cured end products, they feature high extensibility, low modulus and a versatile adhesion profile - without plasticizers.
