Tonsan® MS1937 is a high-quality, neutral, elastic single-component adhesive/sealant based on MS-Polymer, which cures by reaction with moisture to an elastic product. The skin formation and curing time are dependent on humidity and temperature, and the curing time also depends on joint depth. By increasing the temperature and moisture, these times can be reduced; low temperatures as well as low moisture retard the process.

Product Highlights
  • MS1937 is a good compromise between an adhesive and a sealant based on MS-Polymer. MS1937 is suitable for elastic seal which also high strength is required.
  • MS1937 is odorless and free of solvents, isocyanates, silicones and PVC. It demonstrates good adhesion without primer to many substrates and is compatible with suitable paint systems. The adhesive/sealant also demonstrates good UV resistance and therefore can be used for interior and exterior applications.

Application Instructions
  • The substrates must be clean, dry, free of oil and grease.
  • Sausage is applied with the corresponding Hand or Air pressure pistols. In the case of compressed air application, a pressure of (0.2 - 0.4) MPa is required.
  • After application, MS1937 can be smoothed with soapy water.

MS1937 has been tested and found to have excellent adhesion to the following unprimed substrates: aluminum, acrylic-coated aluminum, brass, steel, stainless steel, glass, fiberglass, ABS, rigid PVC, polyester etc. By the manufacturing of plastics, external release agents are used; these agents have to be removed prior to use. Depending on the surface it can be necessary to roughen the surface or to use a primer as an adhesion promoter to provide optimum adhesion.

Application Limitations

When bonding and sealing PMMA and polycarbonate, under tension, stress corrosion cracking may occur. In such cases MS1937 should not be utilized.


MS1937 may be over-painted, however due to the large number of paints and varnishes we strongly recommend a compatibility test before application. The drying time of alkyd resin based paints may increase.
