Applications of MS polymers
Because of these properties, MS polymers are widely used in the construction industry for sealing joints and cracks in concrete, masonry and facades. They are also used in the production of glazing sealants, insulation materials and adhesives for floors and walls.
In addition to the construction industry, MS polymers are also used in the automotive and transportation industries to make adhesives and sealants for bodywork, windows and interiors. They are also used in the production of elastic seals and compounds for boats and other marine applications because of their weatherability and resistance to salt water.
Other applications of MS polymers include the making of sealants for solar panels and other solar energy systems, and the development of adhesives and sealants for the production of electronics and appliances. MS polymers are also used as binders in coatings for surface protection.
In summary, MS polymers are an important class of synthetic polymers that have proven their versatility and unique properties in various industries and applications. Their excellent adhesion, weatherability and resistance to chemicals make MS polymers ideal for use in sealants, adhesives and coatings, and their popularity continues to grow in various markets and applications.
