Low viscosity bonding agent

Akcros Chemicals : 25 October, 2001  (New Product)
Vulcabond MD is the latest addition to Akcros Chemicals' Vulcabond range of bonding agents which improve the adhesion of PVC plastisols to polyester, nylon and other synthetic fabrics.
Like all Vulcabond products, Vulcabond MD is simple to apply, has high bond strengths, minimal odour and contains no inflammable solvents. What makes Vulcabond MD different is the fact that it is composed of a 20% solution of isocyanurate trimer in DINP which makes it far less viscous than other Vulcabond products. Additive levels are 4 - 5% of the total plastisol formulation.

Vulcabond products are used typically to improve the adherence of PVC coatings to synthetic fibres used in heavy duty applications like tarpaulins, where natural fibres' resistance to moisture and bio-organisms is insufficient. In these applications, the characteristically smooth filaments of synthetics have low mechanical adhesion and require an additive to create a strong and durable chemical bond between the fibre and the coating.
