1 Product Information zz Kommerling GD 116. LP Polysulfide Insulating Glass Sealant Description Kommerling GD 116 is a 2-component, solvent-free, liquid zz polymer (LP) polysulfide sealant. Kommerling GD 116. zz demonstrates high strength and elasticity, and is a lower odor polysulfide. It has excellent adhesion to clean surfaces such as glass, aluminum, galvanized and stainless steel. Basic Use Kommerling GD 116 is designed to be used as a secondary zz edge sealant for dual-seal insulating glass units and is widely Features Benefits used in the manufacture of high-end wood windows. Thermosetting, reactive sealant Excellent structural integrity Kommerling GD 116 demonstrates excellent adhesion to glass zz of sealed unit surfaces and most IG spacer systems including aluminum, Chemical resistant sealant Reduced unit failures due anodized aluminum, stainless steel, and tin plated steel.
2 It to incompatible glazing has been formulated to work in hand-gunning as well as fully environments compared to automated robotic application. silicone secondary-sealed IG. Low moisture vapor transmission Longer life expectancy for IG. Kommerling GD 116 is resistant to oils, solvents, and a zz rate (MVTR) units wide-array of chemicals and thus provides excellent protection Superior slump resistance Cleaner, easier applying against IG unit failure caused by incompatibility with glazing sealant. Less waste in hand applied applications materials. Due to it's impermeability to most solvents, oils, and plasticizers, Kommerling GD 116 is particularly suited for zz Solvent free formulation VOC free application with non-rigid warm-edge spacer systems such as TPS , pre-extruded butyl spacers, or foam based spacer Packaging systems.
