A Polyurethane Adhesive That Sticks It To Winter

Published by SOPREMA

With the cold winter months fast approaching, building professionals will be dreading the additional challenges that plummeting temperatures can bring along with them. One common complaint is that normal outdoor adhesives used for insulation boards, cover panels, and thermal barriers can’t effectively do their jobs in those sub-zero weather conditions we’re all too familiar with.

The Construction Adhesives

In Canada, the  unpredictable, damp or cold weather shouldn’t put a halt on progress. That’s why building and renovation professionals are turning to outdoor adhesives that address all the typical winter application problems—ones that have little to no temperature restrictions. Now, imagine an adhesive that does that plus eliminates thermal bridges and involves an easy one-step process that’s fast, clean, and odourless.The name of that adhesive is DUOTACK 365.

The Polyurethane Adhesive DUOTACK 365

DUOTACK 365 is a low-rise, two-component, polyurethane adhesive made for performance and versatility. It can be applied at temperatures as low as -10 °C without conditioning, giving it the widest application window without conditioning on the market. What’s more, DUOTACK adhesives contain no VOCs and cure in minutes.

They are also sized right for every project. DUOTACK adhesives are available in cartridges, cubitainers, and drums to meet all your on-site needs. A battery-powered applicator and 5 US Gal DUOTACK applicator can be used to apply them.
