Adchem Develops Low Surface Energy SDL Muntin Tapes

Adchem Corporation, a leading manufacturer of high performance film and foam bonding adhesive tapes for the fenestration markets, has developed a second-generation muntin bar tape for low surface energy materials.


The new LSE SDL (Low Surface Energy Simulated Divided Light) tape system was developed specifically for Kynar®500 flouropolymer, Vitrasil® acrylic polyester and powder coated finishes. All Adchem muntin tape systems eliminate the need for liquid silane adhesion promoters.


The LSE SDL series provides long-term indoor and outdoor adhesion to a variety of window substrates, including easy-to-clean and self cleaning glass. The system also bonds to cellular PVC, vinyl, primed and unprimed wood, plastic, and painted aluminum muntin bars.


Establishing a new standard for muntin bar adhesives, Adchem's muntin bar tapes  maintains high shear, tensile, and cleavage strength while providing resistance to air, water, detergents, moisture, UV light and dust.


Serving the window and door market for 22 years, Adchem is an active member of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association. For more information, contact Joseph Pufahl, Adchem's Window and Door Business Development Manager, at: jpufahl@adchem.com or 631-727-6000 x 213.
