Butyl system from SM Klebetechnik – efficient, productivity-enhancing and reliable
Butyl application: efficient application of high-viscosity materials up to 10,000 Pa·s – made possible thanks to SM Klebetechnik’s innovative system technology
Whether in the automotive or the construction industry, material viscosities of up to 10,000 Pa·s are not uncommon with hot-processable butyl sealants. With their above-average melting and delivery capabilities for butyl sealants at high material viscosities, SM Klebetechnik’s performance-optimised drum melters are currently being successfully used by many customers. The new systems are reliable, easy to maintain and offer market-leading melting and delivery capabilities for butyl application. In addition, the systems are designed to handle temperatures of up to 200°C.
High-viscosity materials such as butyl or butyl rubber compounds are used, for example, in the automotive industry for sealing battery lids, battery housings (e-mobility) and bipolar plate stacks for fuel cells as well as for sealing components such as headlight gaskets, car bodies and windows.
In the construction industry, high-viscosity materials are used to produce sealing membranes for roofs, sealing adhesive tapes for interior and exterior areas (joint sealing tapes for masonry) and sleeves for ventilation and window connection tapes.
As well as this, individual profile seals (e.g. round cords, flat seals, etc.) and rubber sealing profiles with inserted butyl bead are produced using butyl or butyl rubber compounds, which are used in construction machinery, for example. Butyl is also used as a vibration damper between components, for assembling multi-pane insulating glass and for filling and transferring in cartridge containers.
