Frequently Asked Questions about Silyl Modified Polymer
Is SMP technology compatible with plastics such as PMMA, PC, ABS?
Our SMP technology is compatible with plastics such as PMMA, PC, ABS. It has been tested and approved globally and is popular among plastic producers.
What is the bondline dimension (general and project related) for SMP technology?
The bondline dimension could work with a minimum of 2 mm thickness. This thickness affects the elastic bonding properties of the SMP technology, so we recommend 20 mm for ideal elastic bonding properties.
