Water leakage is a major issue for builders to solve for prolonging the lifespan of a building and providing a comfortable place to live in.
Gap sealing and painting were the usual finishing steps in building, preventing water penetration from the exterior through joints and gaps, more specifically, rainwater.
Over the years of research, various types of sealant technology were developed. The most common types of chemical types of sealants are namely silicone (SR), polyurethane (PU), polysulphide, and in more recent development, hybrid technology polymers. Scientists are now focusing their efforts onto greener and better performance materials.
Here at Kaneka, we have developed a latest hybrid polymer technology known as Kaneka MS Polymer. Kaneka MS Polymer has been growing exponentially for uses at the construction and automotive markets owing to Kanekas approach as a technical solution to the markets. Kaneka MS Polymer is more properly known as a silyl terminated polyether (STPE), where a polyether chain is end-capped with reactive silyl groups giving a more controlled crosslinking. The etymology of the term hybrid technology come from the fact that MS polymer is developed by combining advantages of SR and PU while overcoming their shortcomings, making Kaneka MS Polymer an excellent choice of polymer as a sealant base.
Kaneka MS Polymer is a moisture-cured system, similar to PU and SR. At Kaneka, we produce a variety of MS polymer grades to meet different global standards in construction and automotive industries. Kaneka MS Polymer grades are finely tuned by varying the polymer chain length and also branching points to produce MS polymers with mechanical properties for a wide range of applications. Kaneka MS Polymer can be used for various interior and exterior application such as gap filling sealants, structural sealants, and high tack adhesives.
Unlike PU and SR , Kaneka MS Polymer provides solution to various sealants problems such as, UV resistance, paint compatibility, staining and dirt streaking problems, among others. MS polymer brings both the advantages of polyurethane and silicone together for a more versatile and greener material. Kaneka MS Polymer is the future of construction sealants and adhesives that gives longevity to the buildings.
