Momentive to Outline Advances in Structural Adhesives at ASC Fall 2007 Convention & Expo

WILTON, Conn -- Momentive Performance Materials will be outlining its latest advance in structural adhesives at the Adhesives and Sealant Council, Inc.'s 2007 Fall Convention & Expo in Kansas City, MO. In an October 9 presentation, New SPUR+* Prepolymers with High Modulus and High Temperature Resistance, experts from Momentive will discuss the company's high modulus SPUR+ prepolymers, groundbreaking technology expected to be formally launched in early 2008, for possible use in structural adhesive applications.

"We have seen silylated polymer technology gain broad marketplace acceptance for formulation of adhesives and sealants that do not contain NCO (isocyanate), but to date most manufacturers have focused on low modulus materials for general sealing applications," said Bruce Waldman, global marketing manager, Momentive. "We recognize that there is increasing customer demand for a liquid silylated polymer with higher modulus, and our newest SPUR+ prepolymer is an excellent candidate for meeting this demand. It will offer manufacturers a combination of high heat-resistance and excellent handling properties for possible use in the formulation of higher performing automotive, structural and chemical adhesives."

Momentive's new SPUR+ prepolymer is flowable, without plasticizer, at room temperature, with typical handling characteristics similar to the currently offered SPUR+ 1015 LM prepolymer. The prepolymer cures into a tough composition with elasticity similar to that of the SPUR+ 1050 MM prepolymer, but offers three times the modulus. It also offers improved heat resistance compared with Momentive's SPUR+ LM or MM prepolymers.

Momentive, a three-diamond sponsor of the Adhesives and Sealants Council 2007 Fall Convention & Expo, will be displaying information on SPUR+ prepolymers, as well as its family of Silquest* silane additives, at booth 205.
