Sodium Silicates

Kohesi Bond’s “KB-SS” series of products are uniquely designed sodium silicate based systems. Sodium silicates are inorganic aqueous based systems that are commonly known as “water glass” or “liquid glass”. These one component products require no mixing and are widely used for bonding and coating applications. In addition to being odourless and fire-resistant, they are notable for their phenomenal resistance to extremely high temperatures up to 370°C. Sodium silicate systems offer excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates including various metals, plastics, ceramics, composites and glass. They can be cured at room temperature as well as at elevated temperatures.
Applications Of Sodium Silicate Based Systems
  • Bonding paper sheets together to form paperboard, corrugated cardboard, and other paper products.
  • Building foundry moulds by bonding sand grains together and are also used to bond cores and other components to the moulds.
  • In glass fibre insulation to bond glass fibres together as well as to bond the insulation to a substrate.
  • Bonding abrasive grains to a backing material to form abrasive wheels. They can also be used to bond the wheel to a hub.
  • Bonding and coating substrates for extremely high temperature resistance.
  • Conductive grade systems are used for EMI/RFI shielding applications.
Benefits Of Sodium Silicate Based Systems
  • These have water-resistant properties, making them effective for waterproofing materials like concrete and masonry.
  • With their fire-resistant nature, they can be used to fireproof materials such as wood and paper.
  • They exhibit resistance to a wide range of chemicals, making them ideal for applications where exposure to corrosive substances is a concern.
  • Their ability to withstand high temperatures makes them a reliable choice for applications involving heat exposure.
  • They possess exceptional durability, enabling them to endure significant wear and tear with ease.
