Bostik Findley Introduces Bostik® 2175 FS for Demanding Transportation Vehicle Applications

Environmentally Sound Sealant Offers No Slump, Non-Sag Properties

MIDDLETON, Mass., Jan. 30, 2004 -- Bostik Findley, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of adhesives, sealants, and lubricants, has introduced Bostik® 2175 FS: a new one-component, 100-percent solids sealant specially designed to meet the rigorous demands of the transportation industry.

Based on Bostik® silyl polyurethane sealant (SPS) hybrid polymer technology, Bostik 2175 FS is an economical, moisture-curing formulation whose non-sag properties surpass the performance of conventional sealants in a range of overhead and vertical seam-sealing and vertical gap-filling applications. Its non-yellowing, paint compatible formula provides outstanding adhesion to aluminum, wood, FRP, and other substrates typically used in the fabrication and assembly of transportation equipment and vehicles.

Free of xylene, acetone, MEK or similar solvents, Bostik 2175 FS is an environmentally compatible product, meeting the newest and most stringent SCAQMD and CARB (Calif.) air quality emissions standards. Volatile organic compound (VOC) content is very low (<30 g/l), and it does not contain hazardous air pollutants (HAPs).

Virtually odor free, 2175 FS is suitable for waterproofing exterior lap seams and gap filling applications that require low-sealant shrinkage upon cure. It can be used for fabricating and assembling truck trailers and containers, recreational vehicles (RV's), livestock or grain trailers, as well as industrial-grade HVAC equipment.

Typical uses include sealing aluminum, steel, roof rails and sidewall seams; waterproofing interior and exterior rivet seams and corrosion prevention of rivet heads; bonding and sealing joints constructed of pre-painted aluminum or other metal.

Fast-curing and delivering high tensile strength, Bostik 2175 FS withstands the harshest over-the-road conditions while providing economical in-service performance for all types of transportation equipment.

Bostik 2175 FS quickly cures by reacting to atmospheric moisture to form a tough, flexible seal with excellent UV resistance. At 70° F, the product is tack free in 20 to 40 minutes and fully cures in 24 to 36 hours. Typical physical properties of Bostik 2175 FS include 145 psi tensile strength, 45 Shore A hardness value, and temperature resistance from -40° to 225°F.

Easily extruded Bostik 2175 FS is available in 10-oz. and 20-oz. sausage packages, as well as 10.3-oz. cartridges. It can be dispensed manually or by way of a pneumatic (air-powered) applicator equipped with interchangeable nozzles.
