has released a new, ‘crystal-clear’ multipurpose adhesive for construction or DIY applications. The single-component clear adhesive is solvent-free and can be used to bond multiple substrates including metals, plastics, glass, tiles, concrete, plywood, drywall and enamelled or painted surfaces.
Sikaflex Crystal Clear can be used as an adhesive or sealant either indoors or outdoors and is able to tolerate humid or wet environments. Once cured, the clear adhesive can be left as is or can be painted over. The new adhesive/sealant uses silane terminated polymer technology that allows for rapid curing at room temperature without bubble formation during curing. Silane terminated polymers have high weatherability and good elasticity.
Sika Canada is a subsidiary of Swiss-based Sika AG, a company that produces chemicals, coatings, sealants and adhesives for the construction, automotive and alternative energy industries.
