Silicone, Acrylic & MS Polymer Sealants

JIT Industrial Products Ltd supply a range of silicone, acrylic and MS polymer sealants to suit a variety of applications.

SILICONE SEALANTS

Silicone sealants are available in both high & low modulus. High modulus sealants are best suited to internal applications as they accommodate less movement than the low modulus options.  Low modulus sealants are best suited to external applications as they accommodate more movement.

b2ap3_thumbnail_JIT-Silicone-Sealants-Range.png

Parasilico AM85-1 is available in white, clear, black, brown, beige, anthracite or grey.  Suitable for external use on building & glazing applications.

Parasilico Monument is available in white,natural stone or black.  Replaces window mastic & traditional putties used in manufacture of timber sealed units.

FR Rated DetafireSilicone is available in white or grey.

ACRYLIC SEALANTS

Acrylic sealants are economical and paintable alternatives to silicone.  They are suitable for sealing & filling joints around aluminium, wood, uPVC windows and door frames.  External application of acrylic sealants are dependent on weather conditions - dry & preferably warm conditions are desired during application.  Acrylic sealants do not offer the flexibility of silicone sealants.

b2ap3_thumbnail_JIT-Acrylic-Sealants-Range.png

Paracryl SNJF is available in white, grey, black or brown.  Suitable for joints with low movement.

Paracryl Transparent is a clear acrylic sealant suitable for joints with low movement.

FR Rated Detafire Acrylic is available in white.

MS POLYMER SEALANTS

MS polymer sealants offer great durability, flexibility and offer excellent adhesion to non-porous surfaces.  They bond to damp surfaces are paintable making them a great "all rounder".  They are best used as an adhesive or sealant on surfaces that experience frequent vibration or strain.  They are also ideal for gluing panels, skirting boards, windows, mirrors and insulation materials.

HERMES PERFORMANCE ABRASIVES

In recent tests against a leading competitor, Hermes VC154 LL P240 discs gave 240% performance with regards to total stock removed and 80% longer life with regards to sanding time.

For more detailed information on the test results or if you have any questions, please contact the office on 01698 748290 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

b2ap3_thumbnail_VC154LL-v-Sait-150mm-P240.jpg

Surface Preparation & Application Guidelines

For best results, ensure surfaces are clean, dry and free from oil & grease.

Abrade - to provide a key, abrasion can enhance bond strength by up to 30%.

Clean - using a non-residual surface cleaner.

Prime - using a surface primer chemically alters the surface energy of the substrate to more readily accept adhesive and increases bond strength.

Application - apply bonding tape with the use of a roller, applying firm pressure.  Remove liner, apply second substrate and again apply firm pressure to the bond with the roller.

Bond strength is dependant upon the degree of adhesive to surface contact therefore firm application pressure develops better contact and resulting bond strength is improved.

After application bond strength will increase with 60% strength achieved within 20 minutes, 90% after 24 hours and 100% bond strength achieved after 72 hours.  Ultimate bond strength can be achieved sooner by exposing bond to high temperatures (i.e. +70oC for 1 hour).

b2ap3_thumbnail_If-I-had-a-hammer.png

Application Temperature:   Ideal application range is +19oC to +25oC

Minimum Temperature: +10oC - Try to avoid applying to surfaces below this temperature as adhesive becomes firmer and condensation will form on substrates.  High strength bonding tapes - plastic and crystal can be applied at lower temperatures but condensation must be removed immediately prior to bonding.

Surfaces requiring sealing - most porous surfaces i.e. concrete, wood etc., will require sealing to provide surface integrity. Some materials i.e. copper, brass, galvanised steel and plasticised vinyl may require priming to prevent interaction between adhesive and substrate.  Prime glass for applications in areas of high humidity with surface primer.
