ESSEN, GERMANY: Evonik Industries AG said it launched its two new TEGOPAC reactive diluents.

TEGOPAC RD, silane-modified polymers with lateral cross-linking functions which release ethanol during the curing process, can be used to decrease viscosity of adhesives & sealant formulations or to develop non-staining adhesives & sealant products, it said.

The upcoming product family will consist of two reactive diluents which differ in cross-linking properties.

Within different market segments and applications (eg. flooring adhesives, assembly adhesives, roof sealing) customers can benefit from a variety of properties; Decrease of formulation & polymer viscosity; Improvement of cure-through properties; Increase of hardness & tensile strength; and Development of methanol-free formulations is possible.

TEGOPAC RD can be used instead of standard plasticizers in adhesives & sealant formulations to avoid migration effects also can be blended with different types of silane-modified polymers and epoxy polymers. Formulating with various plasticizers, fillers, and other additives is possible to address applications like parquet adhesives, roof sealing applications or pressure sensitive adhesives and many more.

TEGOPAC RD will strengthen Evonik nutrition & care’s position as a solution provider for various needs in the adhesive & sealants market and enhance the silane-modified polymer portfolio, it said.
