This week’s RubberNews review of new products is showcasing Geniosil XL 70 from Wacker A.G. Geniosil XL 70 is an arylalkoxysilane monomer additive designed to scavenge water in silane-curing adhesives and sealants. It expands Wacker’s range of functional silanes for adhesive applications. Unlike similar additive, Geniosil XL 70 had a higher flash point and lower odor. The low odor makes it ideal for applying over large areas, and it is compatible with stringent occupational health and safety regulations. Water scavenging additives are essential for silane adhesives. Without these additives, the adhesive will interact with water in fillers and other ingredients. Geniosil XL 70 is compatible with all Geniosil silane-modified polymers and organofunctional silanes.
