Hybrid sealants

We have all heard about silicone sealant and polyurethane sealant but how familiar are you with hybrid sealants?

To explain, hybrid sealants are single part, flexible sealants which combines silicone and polyurethane technology, to produce a material with many of the same positive characteristics of both silicones and polyurethanes but with better performing characteristics.

The chemistry of hybrid sealants is perhaps only fifteen years old, but for many industrial applications, hybrid sealants have proved to be the optimum sealant choice.

What benefits do hybrid sealants offer?

  • Free of hazardous chemicals.
  • Fast cure and very easy to apply using either manual or pneumatic application guns.
  • Excellent low temperature application.
  • Excellent slump resistance, so can be applied to vertical or overhead surfaces without flowing or sagging.
  • Strongly resistant to yellowing & excellent adhesion to an exceptionally wide range of materials.
  • Excellent resistance to weathering including ozone, ultra-violet radiation, freeze-thaw conditions and airborne chemicals.
