Simson STR 350


 

DESCRIPTION

Simson STR 350 is an elastic multipurpose adhesive based on Silyl Modified Polymer (SMP). It is a good compromise of an adhesive and sealant, suitable for elastic constructions in industrial applications. Simson STR 350 is free of any solvent, isocyanate and silicone. It has good resistance to UV, weather and temperature. Simson STR 350 exhibits good adhesion performance on a wide variety of substrates (minimal or no pre-treatment necessary).

SILYL MODIFIED POLYMER

APPLICATION
- Elastic bonding and sealing in e.g. caravan and trailer construction
- Bonding of metals, glass and plastics
SMART BENEFITS
- Multipurpose adhesive/sealant
- Easy to use
- Safe for workers and environments
PROPERTIES
- Solvent-, isocyanate- and PVC free
- Good UV-resistance and ageing properties
- Elastic within temperatures from -40°C till +90°C
ADHESION
In general, Simson STR 350 adheres well without primer on clean, dry, dust- and grease free substrates of aluminium, stainless steel, galvanised steel, zinc, copper, brass, powder coated metal, most lacquered metal surfaces, glass, PVC, polyester (GRP), painted and lacquered wood, etc. No adhesion on untreated polyethylene, polypropylene and teflon. In case of high adhesion demands, the use of Simson Prep M is recommended. Prep M degreases and prepares the surface of the substrate in one step. On plain, untreated wooden surfaces and other porous substrates Simson Prep P is recommended. For more details concerning Prep M and Prep P consult the Technical Data Sheets.
For not mentioned substrates and additional information consult Bostik.
METHOD OF USE
Simson STR 350 can easily be extruded with a hand- or air pressure gun at temperatures between +5°C and +35°C. In sealing applications, Simson STR 350 should be tooled or smoothened within 10 minutes (at 20°C/50%R.H.) with a spatula or putty knife, occasionally moistened with a soap solution. Avoid soap solution penetrating between joint sides and sealant, because this will create loss of adhesion. In bonding applications the substrates have to be assembled within 20 minutes (at 20°C/50%R.H.) after applying Simson STR 350. In general an adhesive thickness of 2 mm is recommended. Cleaning tools or removing uncured residue of SIMSON STR 350 can be done with a clean colourless cloth, wetted with Simson Liquid 1. It is recommended to make a trial first to check possible attack of the substrate by Liquid 1.
STORAGE STABILITY
Simson STR 350 can be stored for 18 months in cartridges and 12 months in sausages, in an original, unopened container in a dry place at temperatures between +5°C and +30°C.
