The range of new products covers solutions for insulated glass, window sashes and resin systems.
Phil Turley, business manager for glass products, explained; “Our dynamic R&D department is constantly striving to improve on the products we are able to offer in this highly competitive market. With new legislation for both health and safety and ever more stringent environmental demands, we believe these new offerings will help our customers meet both their own industry standards and those laid down for the consumer under the new regulations.”
GD920 is a new 2 part silicone sealant for use in the manufacture of insulating glass with an exposed edge seal. It has a high modulus, good UV stability and temperature resistance. This is coupled with its excellent adhesion to a range of substrates making it the ideal choice for manufacturers of insulating glass for final applications such as conservatories, where the edge seal will not be covered.
Another highlight from Kömmerling is its new range of products for the direct bonding of insulating glass units to window sashes. Ködiglaze S and Ködiglaze P open up a whole new spectrum of opportunities for window design. With this product Kömmerling provides both the edge seal and the bonding media from one source, thus ensuring a complete system is of an assured quality.
There have also been further developments in the resin systems, Ködiphone and Ködiguard. These low viscosity, highly transparent acrylic resins will now combine ease of use with excellent cured properties and UV resistance. Ködiphone resins exhibit very high levels of sound attenuation whilst the Ködiguard resins have additional properties that make them ideal for applications where safety and security are paramount. Both products will be available in 180kg drums and will be packaged in line with other products from Kommerling.
