Foaming Polyurethane protects hydraulic roof supports from debris.

Henkel Corporation    Rocky Hill, CT 06067
Jun 26, 2014 Pour-in-place Loctite® MR5898™ bonds to pockets and hydraulic cylinders. By foaming up to fill entire cavities and adhering to edges, foam blocks out debris, particulate, teeth, or tools that might damage equipment while remaining flexible enough to allow free movement of hydraulic leg. This self-extinguishing, low-odor foam, intended for use underground and in confined spaces, has 2-part formula that begins to foam minutes after mixing, and becomes tack-free within minutes of pouring.
