Adhesive for extreme conditions 27 April 2023

Weicon, the adhesive manufacturer based in Münster, Germany, has developed a flame-retardant adhesive system, Weicon TB Flex F, suitable for use under extreme conditions in various industrial industries, such as refineries, cement production, chemical, or construction.

TB Flex F is a white, flame-retardant, two component adhesive. It has a thick consistence and can be applied with a spatula. Thanks to its unique attributes, it is suitable for applications in the fire protection sector and is used to bond wear protection ceramics or steel parts to many different surfaces, such as metal or concrete.

The adhesive system has a high bonding strength, is hard-flexible after curing and has been modified to be impact-resistant. Even under the most extreme conditions, the adhesive does not become brittle. It shows good wear protection properties in particle erosion, has good chemical resistance and is solvent-free. TB Flex F contains additives that cause self-extinguishing within a few seconds. It has been tested according to DIN EN ISO 340 at DMT in Dortmund and WEICON ensures the product passed the test successfully.
