Simson STR 360


 

DESCRIPTION

Simson STR 360 is an elastic adhesive based on Silyl Modified Polymer (SMP). It has a high mechanical strength and a good initial tack. Simson STR 360 is suitable for elastic constructions in industrial applications. Simson STR products are free of any solvent, isocyanate and silicone. These products have good resistance to UV, weather and temperature. Simson STR products exhibit 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
FEATURES
- Solvent-, isocyanate- and PVC free.
- Good initial tack
- Good UV-resistance and ageing properties.
- Elastic in a temperature range of –40°C to +90°C.
ADHESION
In general, Simson STR 360 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. In case the joint is exposed to UV radiation the bond surface has to be protected by UV-blocking methods like Simson Prep G. For more details concerning Prep M, Prep P and Prep G consult the specific Technical Data Sheets. For not mentioned substrates and additional information consult Bostik.
STORAGE
Simson STR 360 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.
METHOD OF USE
Simson STR 360 can easily be extruded with a hand- or air pressure gun at temperatures between + 5°C and + 35°C. In sealing applications, Simson STR 360 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 15 minutes (at 20°C/50% R.H.) after applying Simson STR 360. In general an adhesive thickness of 2 mm is recommended. Cleaning tools or removing uncured residue of STR 360 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.
