Hackensack, N.J. Master Bond Inc. has introduced the LTX-117G electrically conductive, water-based adhesive, sealant and coating. It is a one-part, UV stable latex adhesive where the electrical conductivity is achieved by the incorporation of non-metallic graphite filler.
The anti-static Master Bond Polymer System LTX-117G dries by water evaporation at ambient temperatures to provide coatings with controlled electrical properties. The LTX-117G latex coating is characterized by long term viscosity stability, flexibility and good physical strength characteristics, low odor and good adhesion to a wide range of both rigid and flexible substrates. The graphite filler is also said to offer excellent oxidation resistance.
The LTX-117G latex product is water soluble and does not contain any VOC solvents. Typically, water-based resins will result in less environmental or regulatory control related problems, said Master Bond. It is available in pint, quart, gallon and 5 gallon containers.
