Fluids for adhesives and sealants

ExxonMobil Chemical offers a broad portfolio of hydrocarbon and oxygenated fluids for effective adhesive and sealants solutions.

In adhesives, fluids such as Exxsol™ DSP and ExxonMobil™ methyl ethyl ketone dissolve the various binder types used to join surfaces. Fluids may also be used to modify or soften the substrate surface to increase bond strength. Fluid choice can also help control drying properties of adhesive formulations.

With fluids specifically suited for adhesives applications, ExxonMobil Chemical offers formulators:

  • Consistent and predictable process performance
  • The ability to meet increasingly stringent regulations while maintaining the benefits of solvent-based formulations
  • Choices that help develop new, differentiated products
  • Reduced worker exposure to hazardous chemicals 

In sealants, Exxsol™ D and Isopar™   fluids allow the formulator to control sealant viscosity. They also can be used as extenders, allowing the optimization of silicone sealant formulations.

For sealants, these products offer:

  • A range of volatilities
  • Good compatibility with silicone resins
  • Low to extremely low aromatic content 

The low odor of Exxsol D and the virtually odorless Isopar fluids make for a safer and more comfortable working environment.
