Reactive diluents for viscosity reduction & non-staining adhesive and sealant formulations
*** Please contact your local representative for product availability in your country ***
TEGOPAC® RD are silane-modified polymers which are used to decrease the viscosity of adhesives & sealant formulations. The upcoming product family will consist of two reactive diluents with a low and high cross-linking density.
Within the market segments and applications (flooring adhesives, assembly adhesives, roof sealing) customers can benefit from a variety of properties:
Improvement of cure-through properties
increase of hardness & tensile strength
Possibility to formulate methanol-free
Customers can combine TEGOPAC® RD with different silane-modified polymers
Avoiding migration effects is a huge advantage that customers can utilize when using TEGOPAC® RD. Therefor a replacement of migrating plasticizers is possible.
TEGOPAC® RD can be blended with different types of silane-modified polymers and epoxy polymers. Formulating with various plasticizers, fillers, and other additives is possible to address applications like parquet adhesives, roof sealing applications or pressure sensitive adhesives and many more.
- TEGOPAC® RD I
*Not yet available in the Americas* TEGOPAC® Reactive Diluents (RD) are silanemodified polymers which can be used to reduce viscosities of adhesives & sealant formulations. TEGOPAC® RD I is used for viscosity reduction, to avoid migration effects and can improve through cure properties.
- TEGOPAC® RD II
*Not yet available in the Americas* TEGOPAC® Reactive Diluents (RD) are silanemodified polymers which can be used to reduce viscosities of adhesives & sealant formulations. TEGOPAC® RD I is used for viscosity reduction, to avoid migration effects and can improve through cure properties. TEGOPAC® RD II in addition can increase hardness & tensile strength.

The two TEGOPAC® RD products are
silane-modified polymers with lateral crosslinking functions which release ethanol during the curing process. Curing takes place in the presence of moisture.
TEGOPAC® RD 1 is used to reduce viscosity of formulations and to improve cure through properties with only marginal effects on mechanical properties of the adhesive & sealant product.
TEGOPAC® RD 2 is addressing polymer structures with a high crosslinking density. A development of formulations with improved curing properties, increased hardness & tensile strength and a convenient formulation viscosity is possible.
