Bostik Introduces SG1578-164, a Moisture-cured, One-component Hotmelt Urethane Adhesive

Published on 2014-09-16. Author : SpecialChem

Bostik introduces a new one-component, moisture cured, urethane adhesive. The SG1578-164 adhesive from Bostik, a worldwide leader in adhesive and sealant technology, has a unique balance of good green strength with a long open time making it an excellent choice for processing of assembly fixtures. The SG1578-164 is the latest innovation in hot melt technology from Bostik.

SG1578-164 is engineered for assembly manufacturers needing good green strength build up but also need to reposition substrates before the adhesive is set. This feature allows the assemblers to position the substrates with precise accuracy before the product is moved down the assembly line.

The new product has demonstrated success on rigid panel assemblies, garage doors, composite panels, windows and doors, and vehicle load floors in automotive applications. Manufacturers will find this adhesive to provide the needed time to adjust and reposition substrates while still providing the necessary strength to maintain the bond until fully cured.

The new adhesive can be applied in different ways: bead extrusion, roll coating and swirl spray. As a result of its versatility in application method, manufactures can use existing application equipment to apply on differing substrates. SG1578-164 is solvent free making it a good option for customers with VOC restrictions.

Lianne Rachow, Bostik Product Line Manager, states: "The SG1578-164 is ideally suited for manufacturers who need a little extra time to position differing substrates before the adhesive sets. The extra open time will allow for precise placement of the part producing a better finished product." Rachow also states: "The urethane technology has great adaptability to many different substrates. Manufacturers will appreciate the ease of use for their particular application.“
