Körapur® 128 S is an elastic one-component adhesive and sealant used for bonding in the manufacturing of containers, vehicles, vehicle bodywork, air conditioning and heating equipment, metalwork, and other applications. It exhibits good adhesion to primed and painted metals, aluminum and steel, wood, and duroplastics. It also offers good resistance to humidity and weathering.

Processing

Processing temperature: 40°F to 95°F

Preparation:

  • The surfaces to be bonded must be clean, dry and free from dust and grease. For cleaning we recommend Körasolv PU. In the case of powder coated substrates, Körasolv WL should be used.
  • To increase bond strength of non-porous substrates such as glass, glass-fibre reinforced plastics, aluminium, stainless steel, etc. we recommend the use of Körabond HG 81. For porous substrates such as wood, Körabond HG 74 E is recommended.
  • For certain plastics such as ABS or PVC we recommend the use of Körabond HG 77. Due to the diversity of substrates, preliminary tests are re commended.
  • Körapur 128 S can be overpainted after skin formation. Adhesion and compatibility must be tested by prelimiary trails. Please consider that the brittleness of the paint film may limit the elastic movement of the sealant and may lead to cracking of the paint. Thus, the curing reaction proceeds slower under the paint film.
  • Avoid direct contact with isocyanate reactive substances, especially alcohol such as spirit, dilutions and cleaning com-pounds until the adhesive has attained full cure. This will prevent the adhesive from curing properly. By direct or indirect contact with some other organic products preliminary tests are recommended.

Bonding:

  • The thickness of the layer depends on the expected mechan-ical movement.
  • Join the materials to be bonded within the skin formation time. Due to the low initial tack, we recommend mechanical fixing in some applications until a complete cure is obtained.
  • The curing is dependent on temperature, humidity and the dimensions of the joint.
  • By using the special hardener Köracur 110 S the product cures independent of humidity.

Cleaning:

Körasolv PU: Clean tools immediately after use. Once cured, material can only be removed mechanically.
