Nouryon Introduces Epoxy-terminated Polysulfide Polymer for Adhesives Nouryon, a specialty chemicals manufacturer, introduces Thioplast EPS 35, an aliphatic epoxy-terminated polysulfide polymer that enables high-performance adhesives to withstand harsh environments in the construction, automotive, aerospace, marine, and energy industries.

Reduces Complexities in Formulations

"Nouryon’s customers work in challenging environments,” said Sylvia Winkel Pettersson, vice president engineered polymers at Nouryon. “We offer solution that protects their assets under extreme conditions, enhances durability, reduces maintenance and thereby delivers significant savings and safety benefits.”

Thioplast EPS 35 is a high-performance modifier for formulations. It combines the capabilities of various epoxy modifiers in one product, enabling customers to achieve durable adhesives while reducing the complexity of their formulations.

The properties of Thioplast EPS 35 aliphatic epoxy-terminated polysulfide polymer make it ideal for a variety of demanding applications and challenging surfaces,” said Carlos Alva, business manager polysulfides at Nouryon. “These include specialty adhesives such as those used in the automotive, building, construction and electrical industries.”

Thioplast EPS 35 is compatible with most Bisphenol A, A/F, F and Novolac resins and can also be used in epoxy-based adhesives and sealant formulations. The use of Thioplast EPS 35 in a given application must be tested (including, but not limited to field testing) in advance by the user to determine suitability. Thioplast EPS 35 is used in two-component systems. Typical curatives are linear or cyclic aliphatic or aromatic amines.
