Application

  • Suitable for the sealing of joints in secure supervised environments or in out of reach applications.
  • Formulated to seal typical joints where a strong bond and movement accommodation is required.
  • Suitable for use where long term visual appearance of the sealant is to be maintained.
  • Biocote is proven effective against microbes that may negatively impact aesthetic finishes.
  • Municipal and public areas.
  • Adhesive sealing and jointing to most substrates, especially where superior antimicrobial performance is required.
  • Permanent elastic sealing with high adhesive strength to a wide variety of substrates including wood, concrete, tiles, steel, aluminium, zinc, copper, brass, stainless steel, glass, polyester.
  • Suitable for use in animal shelters, detention centres prisons or hospitals.
  • Suitable for internal use only.

Description

A high modulus, single component, moisture-curing, adhesive and sealant based on Hy-Spec Hybrid Polymer Technology. The product is specifically formulated to be robust and resilient once cured to offer enhanced anti-pick properties over traditional sealants. In addition, the product is protected by Biocote Antimicrobial technology to create a surface upon which bacteria/ microbes cannot survive, making it easier to maintain a hygienic surface.

Features and benefits:

  • Anti-pick formulation – more resistant to being picked in communal areas relative to traditional sealants.
  • High modulus adhesive and sealant with integral antimicrobial protection.
  • Neutral cure system, free from isocyanates and silicones. The product is therefore paintable.
  • Highly resistant to ageing; life cycle testing shows Biocote is proven to offer antibacterial protection for the expected lifetime of the product.
  • Non-staining, solvent-free, odour free and bubble-free curing.
  • Good adhesion to unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC-U), coated metals, brickwork, polycarbonate, coated timber and glass.
  • Resistant to water, saltwater, grease oils, fuels, defrosting liquids, detergents, aliphatic fats, mildew, weak acids and alkali.
  • Proven to reduce bacteria/ microbes by up to 99.99%, based on MOD ISO 22196: 2011.
  • Robust material once cured.
  • Non-flammable.

Applications:

  • Suitable for the sealing of joints in secure supervised environments or in out of reach applications.
  • Formulated to seal typical joints where a strong bond and movement accommodation is required.
  • Suitable for use where long term visual appearance of the sealant is to be maintained.
  • Biocote is proven effective against microbes that may negatively impact aesthetic finishes.
