Kaneka MS Polymer™ does the job!

Although Kaneka MS Polymer was initially developed as a sealant material for skyscrapers in earthquake-sensitive areas, the technology platform has grown ever since and now covers a vast portfolio of sealant, adhesive, and coating applications. New high-strength polymers from Kaneka add higher strength adhesives for structural bonding onto Kaneka’s never-ending list of new applications.
