Dynasol inaugurates an additional area with controlled temperature and humidity conditions in its Adhesives Laboratory

Published on 2009-03-18. Author : SpecialChem

As part of its commitment with its adhesives and sealants customers, Dynasol has announced the opening of a 60-square-meter test room with controlled temperature and humidity. This new area, additional to the existing 45 square meters in its Technical Assistance and Development laboratory, was built with the purpose of surpassing the current international standards on adhesive and sealants tests.

With this new area, Dynasol now has a 105-square-meter room with continuously controlled temperature and humidity, in order to offer a total of 440 square meters in the Technical Assistance and Development Laboratory area.

Styrene butadiene copolymers (SBC) are often used as the primary component in elastomeric adhesives, and they are also used as a major additive to adjust properties of other elastomeric resin based adhesives.

In addition to the existing equipment for the performance of adhesion tests, this new facility will improve the technical assistance capabilities in the laboratory services, by including new equipments to perform rheological assessments, application of glues, five different ageing systems, substrate surface preparation, high - and low-temperature adhesion assessments, compression coupling with effort control, as well as to optimize the conditions under with some trials are performed on a daily basis. Additionally, the laboratory has been equipped with a modern environmental air purification system which retains and processes the potential emission of volatile organic compounds, in accordance with the most stringent international environmental control standards.

The laboratory is fully equipped to formulate and evaluate a wide range of adhesives and sealants, including hot fusion and solvents, in full compliance with the current standards, such as those established by the Pressure Sensitive Tape Council, the American Standard Testing Materials (PSTC ASTM), as well as other organizations, including the specific standards of some of our customers.

The total investment in this project, amounting approximately to 600 MDD, has been assigned with the purpose of offering Dynasol’s customers a level of excellence in the area of post-marketing technical service for the adhesive and sealants market, as well as to increase and optimize Research and Development of new products and their applications.
