SMP Featured Product Series

Bostik has published several blogs on Silyl Modified Polymer (SMP) technology. We have already looked at STR220A and STR350A, but now let’s look at another product in particular:

STR360A SKF, Multipurpose Adhesive

What is it?

Bostik’s STR360A SKF is a SMP based adhesive suitable for making elastic constructive joints. This high quality product is especially developed for bonding and sealing in bus, caravan and trailer construction.

Why is it beneficial?

Immediately after installation, STR360A SKF has a high green strength (high internal strength), which results in a heavy paste with an extremely good slump resistance. Additionally, this product has a 30 minute open time, allowing for flexibility in manufacturing processes needing additional work time.

Key Features

  • Solvent, isocyanate and PVC free
  • Very good UV-resistance and aging properties
  • Neutral and odorless curing

How to Use It:

STR360A SKF easily can be extruded with a hand or air pressure gun at temperatures between 41°F to 95°F. In sealing applications, the product should be tooled or smoothened within 15 minutes at 70°F with a spatula or putty knife, occasionally moistened with a soap solution. In bonding applications, the substrates have to be assembled within 30 minutes at 70°F after applying the product.

Special Recommendations

Avoid soap solution penetrating between joint sides and sealant, which will create loss of adhesion. In general, an adhesive thickness of 2 mm is recommended.
