Let’s highlight an exciting new product from the Dry-Treat product line: Eff-Erayza. This product offers the strong cleaning power of traditional acid cleaner, but without the noxious fumes that will not burn skin upon contact but for extended use suggests wearing gloves.

Eff-Erayza™ is an acidic cleaner for removing mineral residues including:

  • efflorescence,
  • grout haze,
  • rust marks,
  • limescale and
  • mortar mess.

Since Eff-Erayza does not produce noxious fumes, it can be used indoors and outdoors.

What is Eff-Erayza Commonly Used For?

Eff-ErayzaThis cleaner is suitable for commercial and domestic use on:

  • floors,
  • walls,
  • facades,
  • showers,
  • masonry,
  • brickwork,
  • patios,
  • driveways, and
  • garage floors.

What Types of Surfaces are Well-Suited for Eff-Erayza?

Eff-Erayza is suitable for a wide range of non-acid sensitive stones and other hard surfaces, including:

  • granite,
  • slate,
  • basalt,
  • brick,
  • glass,
  • ceramic and porcelain tile,
  • terracotta and more.

Acidic cleaners are commonly used to clean paving and poured concrete surfaces. If you are using Eff-Erayza on concrete or other cementitious surfaces, neutralize the surface as soon as possible after cleaning to minimize etching, with something alkaline, such as Oxy-Klenza dissolved in water, then rinse thoroughly with fresh water.

Just be aware that Eff-Erayza is acidic and will etch / damage acid sensitive stones such as marble, limestone, travertine and onyx as well as concrete / grout products and uncoated aluminum. Be sure to read all of the safety directions and precautions carefully before using.

Eff-Erayza offers many specific benefits. Let’s take a look at just a few…

  • Highly effective for removing common mineral residues, including efflorescence, grout haze, rust marks, soap scum, lime scale and mortar mess.
  • This product offers the power of dangerous traditional acids without the noxious fumes.
  • Temporary contact with Eff-Erayza does not burn skin - you have some time to rinse off the product (however, rinse immediately after skin contact).
  • Almost zero corrosion of metals, except uncoated aluminum.

If you are using Eff-Erazya™ to prepare a concrete floor before applying a coating its a good idea to neutralize any remaining acid. This will ensure that the substrate is stable for the coating to bond. Dissolve a cup of Oxy-Klenza™ (or other pH base cleaner) into a bucket of fresh water and pour it over the concrete that was acid etched and let it sit for a minimum of 3 minutes.  Then thoroughly flush several times with fresh water to rinse away the solution and any salts that may have formed.

Dry-Treat has put together a helpful video on How to Use Eff-Erayza™ on Efflorescence. You can view it here.

Eff-Erayza is available in both one quart and five gallon sizes.

Chemical Concepts is proud to carry many items from the line of Dry-Treat products. You can see all Dry-Treat items that we have available here.

Will Eff-Erayza be a helpful item for you to add to your team’s cleaner arsenal? Do you have more questions about this new product? Our sales team is ready to help. Please give us a call toll-free at 800-220-1966 or shoot us an email at sales@chemical-concepts.com.

Facing the Challenge of Bonding Dissimilar Substrates

Monday, October 9, 2017 12:35:38 PM America/New_York

One of the greatest challenges that can be placed on a quality adhesive is seeing how well it stands up to bonding dissimilar substrates – especially when the substrates have markedly difference coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE). Stress caused by temperature extremes in service and thermal cycling can significantly complicate usage.

Thankfully, several tough adhesives are created just for the job of bonding dissimilar substrates, and maintain their effectiveness through many types of variables.

Common examples of dissimilar substrate bonding might include bonding:

  • aluminum to glass,
  • glass to plastics,
  • ceramic to plastics, and
  • rubbers to metals.

Let’s take a look at a few options for adhesives that work well in just these types of scenarios.

Chem-Set™ 605 Quick Set Acrylic Adhesive 

Chem-Set 605The Chem-Set 605 Quick Set Acrylic Adhesive is a two-part methacrylate clip bonding adhesive designed for the structural bonding of sink clips, steel and aluminum to solid surface, engineered stone, quartz surfaces and natural stone products. The Chem-Set 605 has a working time of 3 to 6 minutes and achieves a functional cure within 15 minutes at room temperature.

Chem-Set 605 provides high strength to acrylic solid surface, polyester solid surface, and alloy solid surface. Chem-Set 605 also bonds very strongly to steel, stainless steel, and aluminum metals.

Chem-Set 605 is a great option for:

  • Solid surface,
  • Engineered stone,
  • Quartz,
  • Natural stone.

LORD 310-A/310-B 

LORD 310-A/310-B LORD® 310 adhesive is a modified, thixotropic, two-component epoxy adhesive system used to bond many types of prepared metals, prepared rubber, urethane and plastics. Originally formulated for primerless adhesion to SMC, LORD 310 adhesive is used to bond disk drives, down-hole oil field equipment, automotive body panels and spoilers, and vibration dampening mounts. LORD 310 adhesive can be either room temperature cured or heat cured for faster processing.

Here are some of the particular benefits you can expect from LORD 310:

  • Durable - provides load bearing properties equal to or greater than the materials being bonded.
  • Environmentally Friendly - contains no solvent, nonflammable and virtually odorless.
  • Environmentally Resistant - resists moisture, sunlight, salt spray and thermal cycling.
  • Temperature Resistant - performs at temperatures from -40 to +400°F (-40 to +204°C); resists postbakes up to 400°F (204°C); resists outgassing up to 225°F (107°C).
  • Chemically Resistant - resists dilute acids, alkalis, solvents, oils and hydrocarbons; anti-corrosion processes including phosphatizing and ELPO (e-coat) coatings do not affect adhesive or its bond strength.
  • Excellent Engineering Properties - provides low shrinkage, good creep properties and low water absorption.

Chem-Set™ 633 5 Minute Epoxy Adhesive 

Chem-Set 633 5 Minute Epoxy AdhesiveChem-Set™ 633 is a five-minute epoxy adhesive material commonly used with natural stone.

A few of its top features include:

  • High viscosity,
  • Bonds to stone and wood,
  • Non-sagging adhesive,
  • Gap-filling to .250 inches,
  • Good solvent resistance,
  • 100% reactive, no solvents,

Many of our customers use Chem-Set™ 633  adhesive for laminating and bonding metal sink fasteners to the underside of natural stones and porous countertops. However, for laminating and rodding we recommend the Chem-Set 633LV due to its thinner formulation which allows better flow.

It’s true – bonding dissimilar substrates can be a challenge, but these adhesives are up to the task. But don’t guess as to which one might work best for you – please call our experienced sales team and talk about your particular scenario. They’ll be happy to suggest the products that will best suit your needs. Call us toll-free at 800-220-1966 or email us here.

A Few Important Updates Regarding Our C20 and C30 Marblemaster Products

Monday, October 2, 2017 11:02:45 AM America/New_York

Have you heard about the changes to our popular C20 and C30 Marblemaster seaming adhesive product line? 

As you may know, there has been some consolidation in the seaming adhesive market. The company that had been manufacturing these products for us was purchased by a large corporation. The new management is making changes to our assortment of colors and color names.

Please take a moment to view our new color charts and cross reference chart that compares the new colors to our legacy colors.

We still have inventory of the old colors but they are no longer being produced. As we run out of the old colors we will be gradually replacing them with the new color names. During this transition, please let us know what material you are trying to match when you place your orders (e.g. Corian Sandstone). That way we can give you the best match we have in inventory as we will have some inventory of both old and new colors for a period of time.

New Cartridges for New Colors

You should also be aware that the new colors (with color # beginning with 'C', e.g. C601) will be packaged in a slightly modified 250ml cartridges. This cartridge will work in the same dispense guns, but will use different mixing tips.

The part numbers for the new mixing tips are CCH-TIPSC20X for C20 and CCH-TIPSC30X for C30. The tips will be the same cost and are discounted when purchased with our adhesive.The C20 and C30 will also be available in a special 100ml cartridge that fits in a standard caulking gun. This 100ml cartridge will be available in a limited color selection only.

What Won’t Be Changing

While a few details regarding the Marblemaster products are changing, here’s what won’t change: the quality and durability of these products that our customers have come to love.

Chem-Set C-20 Seaming Adhesive C20 adhesives offer a combination of high strength, stiffness, and toughness as well as the ability to bond very strongly to a wide variety of solid surface materials. C20 adhesives provide high strength bonds to acrylic solid surface, polyester solid surface (both filled and unfilled), and alloy solid surface (combinations of both acrylic and polyester solid surface resins). C20 adhesive gives the fastest initial strength (green strength) and quickest routable time from dispensing of any of the contemporary adhesives in the market place.

C-30 offers a combination of high strength, stiffness, and toughness as well as the ability to bond very strongly to a wide variety of hard surface or inorganic materials. When combined with the proper use of ChemSet's ProBond surface cleaner/activator, C-30 provides high strength bonds to virtually any stone, engineered stone or quartz or granite products, including porcelain, sintered stone, and glass.

C-30 permits the seasoned fabricator the opportunity to apply the adhesive to vertical surfaces, as well as horizontal surfaces, without dripping, and upon gelation, give the fabricator an extended window (5 to 10 minutes) to de-rope, or trim with a single bladed straight edge razor blade, the excess from the stone slab without ripping the adhesive out of the joint, nor damaging the surface of the stone. 

We want to help you through any issues that might arise in this transition. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 800-220-1966 if you have any questions at all. We absolutely want to work with you to make sure that this transition is as easy and seamless as possible. We appreciate  your business!

Anaerobic Adhesives Form Excellent Protection From Joint Loosening and Moisture

Monday, September 18, 2017 10:16:40 AM America/New_York

Anaerobic adhesives work by completely filling gaps between metal components. Using an anaerobic adhesive is a huge safeguard from loosening that can come from vibration. They can also work to protect the joint from corrosion or rust that can develop from moisture. These adhesives are typically used to augment the seal or holding force of a mechanically joined assembly.

Anaerobic sealants will not cure without the presence of metal and lack of oxygen. But lack of oxygen and presence of metal is exactly the environment that arises when an anaerobic sealant (adhesive) is sealed between a nut and a bolt on a threaded metal assembly or between two closely fitted metal cylindrical parts. With active metal ions and no oxygen, anaerobic adhesives and sealants rapidly cure to form a tough cross-linked plastic that will form an excellent bond with many metals.

What Benefits Can You Expect Using Anaerobic Sealants?

Here are just a few of the benefits that you can expect from using anaerobic sealants:

  •   Liquid adhesive provides greater surface-to-surface contact than mechanical fasteners.
  •   Quick curing without air; accelerates assembly rates.
  •   Resistant to oils, solvents and other surface treatments.
  •   Available in permanent and removable formulations.
  •   Superior bond strength; often exceeds that of substrate material.
  •   Wide temperature range; from 55 to 150°C (-65 to 300°F).
  •   Gap fill capability from interference fits up to 0.5mm (0.02”).
  •   Seals, bonds and locks with one product.

There are four basic types of anaerobic sealant adhesives:

1) Retaining compound – which bond and seal cylindrical joints.
2) Threadlocker, – which bond and seal threaded metal fasteners.
3) Thread sealant – which bond and seal threaded pipes and fittings.
4) FIP Form in place gasket – FIPs create a gasket directly on a part.

Chemical Concepts proudly carries several anaerobic sealant adhesives from Permabond and Pacer. Let’s focus on one product that serves as a thread sealant and one that serves as a threadlocker.

Permabond® LH050 - Thread sealant

Permabond® LH050 - Thread sealantPermabond® LH050 pipe sealant (pipe dope) with PTFE is a general purpose pipe sealant that provides instant air pressure seal up to 1000 psi with limited hand tightening. After cure, the sealing capability is typically up to the burst rating of the pipe itself. The low locking strength allows easy disassembly.

Permabond® LH050 pipe sealant performs well on most metals, particularly steel and brass. It provides an excellent alternative to pipe dopes and pipe tapes for sealing pipe joints.

It cures anaerobically when in contact with metal parts (as in a threaded pipe joint). When applied, LH050 dispenses as a smooth paste, filling the entire space between the threaded parts. It then cures at ambient temperature to form a solid plastic, completely sealing against hydraulic fluids, air, gases and chemicals. In addition, it locks the pipes, plugs or fittings against vibration loosening, tampering and variable temperature effects.

Some of LH050’s Benefits:

  •   Full cure seal to burst rating of pipe.
  •   Easy to use and apply.
  •   Nonflammable.
  •   Environmentally friendly.
  •   Allows for adjustment up to 10 hours post assembly.
  •   High temperature resistance.
  •   Full cure at room temperature.

More thread sealants carried by Chemical Concepts can be found here.

Permabond® HH120 – Threadlocker

Permabond® HH120 – ThreadlockerPermabond® HH120 Threadlocker is an excellent general purpose threadlocker and sealant. It is used for locking bolts, nuts and screws that require permanent assembly. Its high viscosity allows for ease of use on coarse threaded fasteners. Cure is fast and reliable on steel, cadmium, zinc and other plated fasteners. Major use areas include machinery and equipment manufacturing. Additional uses include sealing pipe flanges, retaining worn bearings, and government applications, as Permabond HH120 is tested to the lot requirements of Mil-S-46163A and Mil-S-22473E.

Some of HH120’s Benefits:

  •   Prevents vibration loosening
  •   Controlled off-torque.
  •   Non-drip, thixotropic.
  •   Full cure at room temperature.
  •   Provides corrosion protection.
  •   Superior environmental resistance.
  •   Environmentally friendly.
  •   100% solids.

For Use on Many Different Types of Surfaces

Our clients who are installers deal with lots of different types of stone surfaces – so it’s only fitting to offer a blade that works on a variety of surfaces. Count on the Banshee Blade for reliable cuts on:

  • granite.
  • marble.
  • engineered stone.
  • quartz.

The Type of Performance You Can Expect from a Banshee Blade

The last thing you want to experience while cutting through expensive marble, quartz, or granite is to create a chip. The Banshee Blade is designed specifically to make a chip-free cut and to create a beautiful, smooth finish. The highly-engineered diamond segment design is key in avoiding chips in the stone.

Plus the high-stability solid core helps to increase your cutting speed, and extend the life of the blade. We understand that these blades are investments – and important tools that can end up causing a significant project holdup if they break. We think you’ll see that the quality of the Banshee Blade will help your crews to keep moving and get the job done.
