Alcryn MPR proves ideally suited for architectural components

Advanced Polymer Alloys Llc : 10 May, 2006  (New Product)
Alcryn MPR is used in a variety of architectural applications to deliver high resistance to sunlight, ultraviolet light, weathering, acid rain, and air pollution. Components made with Alcryn also withstand wood preservatives, paint solvents, oils, greases, and window cleaning agents. Such components have been shown to retain their physical properties, including flexibility and sealing capabilities, for more than 15 years.
Advanced Polymer Alloys, a division of Ferro Corp., announced that architectural component manufacturers are using Alcryn Melt-Processible Rubber to take advantage of its superior weather resistance and silicone compatibility. Manufacturers are deploying Alcryn MPR in residential window weather stripping and seals, door sweeps, commercial glazing seals, and building seals.

Alcryn MPR is used in a variety of architectural applications to deliver high resistance to sunlight, ultraviolet light, weathering, acid rain, and air pollution. Components made with Alcryn also withstand wood preservatives, paint solvents, oils, greases, and window cleaning agents. Such components have been shown to retain their physical properties, including flexibility and sealing capabilities, for more than 15 years.

For window weather stripping applications, extruded profiles of Alcryn MPR endure long-term exposure to severe weather and UV light, will not creep or loosen over time, and provide joints that are strong and leak-resistant. Easy-to-process Alcryn MPR can be extruded into complex profiles meeting unique fenestration design needs, such as seals used in commercial glazing between and around double panes of glass. Additionally, Alcryn MPR is compatible with the chemicals used in the window and door industry's newest product, self-cleaning glass.
Alcryn MPR can be melt-bonded to rigid PVC, and outperforms flexible PVC in compression set and durability. For welded weather stripping applications, manufacturers have welded Alcryn MPR using mechanical energy (ultrasonic), external heating (hot plate and hot gas), and electrical energy (R.F. power and electromagnetic induction).
