To be featured at GlassBuild, Protek ITwrap is a cohesive backed non-crosslinked (NXL) polyethylene wrap used to prevent scratches and minor impacts during shipping. Because it sticks only to itself, ITwrap is ideal for enveloping products such as handles, unfastened hardware and even entire windows, the supplier states. ITwrap is also available in cardboard and bubble wrap. Lamatek Inc. is also showing its Protek ALLwrap, a low-tack, residue-free, removable adhesive covering that sticks to any surface and is good for wrapping products like lift rails, decorative flanges and other products where enveloping is difficult. ALLwrap is available in kiss-cut pads or tapes.

GE RapidStrength sealant’s fast green strength helps enable manufacturing facilities to reduce costs through increased throughput with less inventory handling, work in process, breakage and field service, the supplier states. From Momentive Performance Materials, the sealant typically develops sufficient elastomeric and adhesive strength within 8 minutes to 15 minutes of mixing and applying to permit movement and handling of sash subassemblies without glass slippage. It normally builds to near maximum strength in 60 minutes to 90 minutes, resulting in increased productivity and decreased production costs. The material cures to a flexible silicone rubber and does not “creep” when properly applied, the company notes. Cold-applied silicone sealants can also be easily deglazed. When cut with a sharp knife, they will not re-heal, while hot melts tend to be sticky and re-heal after cutting, making it difficult to do field repairs. Primerless adhesion capabilities allow it to bond to most conventional substrates and finishes, including vinyl, wood, anodized aluminum and fluoropolymer and polyester paints.

Rapid Glaze 2700, a warm-applied, single component backbedding compound for windows, provides high early green strength which allows for rapid assembled unit movement, the supplier states. Adhering to a variety of substrates—including glass, PVC, fiberglass, wood, and various aluminum finishes—the material creates a durable air and watertight seal, meeting AAMA standards and remaining flexible for the life of the assembly to which it is applied, the company states. Non-contaminating, HAPS free, VOC exempt, the high-solids product is said to provide an environmentally friendly choice for backbedding.
