The world of adhesives is very extensive and is undergoing constant evolution to respond to the technical requirements of building sectors and industry in general, with many technologies depending on their components, various chemical natures and different presentations with the same purpose: surface contact bonding and joining of one or more elements or materials.
One of the latest technologies that has burst onto the world market is the hybrid adhesive.
What is a Hybrid Adhesive?
As the definition of hybrid indicates, it is a product that comes from two or more elements of a different nature. Applied to the adhesive field, it is the combination of several chemical elements to create an optimum formula that combines the properties and most interesting characteristics of each of those elements, ensuring a firm, secure and reliable bond. This technology is an excellent choice for all types of specific solutions.
What is a Hybrid Adhesive used for?
Hybrid Adhesive allows high-performance bonding between different substrates, without the need for personal or environmental protective equipment, with short curing processes and the application of a single product.
Any production project can incorporate solutions and benefits with the replacement of mechanical assemblies, providing greater lightness and strength in the final manufacturing outcome.
One of the main obstacles for conventional adhesives is the adhesion between different types of substrates, hybrid adhesives being the most suitable technology and with the greatest possibilities of combination.
What are the advantages and benefits of Hybrid Adhesives?
- Products that respect the environment and the health of the user.
- Free of solvents, isocyanates and odourless.
- Adhesives classified as “green” products; because they can be used in closed environments and in spaces open to the public and their components are environmentally friendly.
- Easy to apply, even in environments with low temperatures and humidity.
- Compatible with most substrates and materials.
- High mechanical strength, even to vibrations and shocks.
And Modified Polymer technology …
The latest generation Hybrid Adhesives are based on Modified Polymer technology. This technology combines the performance of Silicones and Polyurethanes, providing a great evolution in material bonding performance.
In addition to the above advantages, these types of hybrid adhesives also have certain features that make them unique:
- Monocomponent system, ready for use
- Fast curing
- Powerful bonding
- Elastic joints
- Resistant to UV-light and all types of climates
- Excellent durability
- Can be painted
The Hybrid Adhesive is the right solution for a high-quality assembly, with great strength and with fast and simple application processes.
