Moisture Cure

Moisture cure adhesives uniquely react with moisture in the environment or the underlying layer in order to cure

The majority of adhesives on the market use waterborne- or solvent-based mixtures that cure when either water or a solvent evaporates. By contrast, moisture cure adhesives uniquely react with moisture in the environment or the underlying layer in order to cure. While this curing process can take days to complete, moisture cure adhesives have unique uses for the bonding and use of construction materials.

Moisture cure adhesives work well with surfaces that are difficult to bond, such as wood-based materials, untreated metal, or plastics that don’t contain polypropylene or polyethylene. They also function well for insulation panels and exterior applications that may be exposed to temperatures in excess of 100 degrees. Even delicate and thin materials, like plastic panels, glass, and sheet metal fascia, can benefit from moisture curing. They form elastic bonds and seals and are applied where different thermal length expansions require permanent movement compensation.

Beyond working better for challenging surfaces and delicate materials, moisture cure adhesives also can be formulated to meet the specific needs of a product. We offer a line of largely polyurethane-based, silane-terminated polymers and silicone-based products ideal for sealing, bonding, potting, and thermal conductivity, depending on the specific performance you need. Our formulations include benefits like:

  • Permanently elastic, vibration-damping
  • Compensate different thermal length expansions
  • Low to high viscosity for optimal application
  • Instant seal
  • Resistance to oils and chemicals
  • Flame retardancy
  • Low to high thermal conductivity
  • Long-term resistance to harsh weather conditions
