What are MS Adhesive, what are the advantages, and what can they be used for?

MS Adhesives are a relatively new innovation in the world of adhesives. A brief overview of what MS Adhesives are, what their benefits are, and what they can be used for

The term “MS Adhesive” is used for a family of adhesives which use “MS Polymer” as a base polymer or as an additive.  MS stands for “Modified Silicone” - it has distinct differences to the common silicones we all know about, and was developed over 30 years ago by a Japanese company, Kaneka.  It is a moisture curing system and does have similar properties to silicones and polyurethanes but with distinct advantages.

Although MS can be used in other industries, it is mainly utilised in the adhesives and sealants world for manufacturing adhesives and sealants for construction, automotive and DIY markets for a diverse range of applications including;

MS is extremely versatile and will bond many substrates including wood, metal, fibreglass, GRP, plastics and many more substrates.

The benefits of MS polymer against silicones and polyurethanes are;

  • No bubble-formation (no CO2 release)
  • UV resistant
  • Can be overpainted
  • Good extrudability, even at low temperatures
  • Solvent free
  • Water free
  • No hazard labelling
  • Excellent adhesion on most common substrates
  • Permanently elastic properties, even at low temperatures

MS adhesives can be dispensed through cartridges, sachets, by hand trowel, guns and by automatic dispensing machinery.
