A substance which is applied to a substrate to improve the adhesion of an adhesive or sealant to the substrate.more
Depending on the application, adhesive formulations contain filler materials either to simply reduce cost or to achieve specific properties.
Due to their chemical composition a number of aqueous adhesive dispersions tend to foam, i.e. either creation of macrofoam or microfoam.more
Hydrophobizing agents are for example hydrophobic fumed silica or precipitated silicas, like AEROSIL® R 8200 or SIPERNAT® D10, which can adjust adhesives & sealants more hydrophobic.more
Reinforcing agents are for example active fillers like fumed silica, precipitated silica and carbon black which improve the mechanical properties like tensile strength and tear resistance of adhesive & sealants.more
The science that studies the relation between flow of materials and applied forces is called rheology. As the example of dough shows, this relation is far from simple.
Wetting agents are used to achieve very different effects, ranging from the wetting of critical substrates, e.g. label applications, to the wetting of fillers in construction adhesives or to enlarge open times of formulated adhesives.more
Depending on the grade, TEGO® VariPlus products can easily dissolved in polar or non-polar solvents.more
