AZEK injects new adhesives and sealants into pro line
AZEK Building Products has introduced a new line of professional adhesives and sealants engineered to bond and protect the company’s trim and moulding offerings.
Expanding upon AZEK's original adhesive cement, this new structural adhesive line is designed for fast, easy installation of AZEK trim, the company said.
The system helps prevent trim joints from separating and provides nail and gap filling solutions designed specifically for PVC. The adhesives and sealants provide flexibility, toughness and exceptional surface adhesion, even in extreme weather.
The new adhesives and sealants line includes:
Fast Cure: This is the best choice for core to core bonding. The line consists of a two-component adhesive formulated for PVC trim applications.
Slow Cure: Best option for surface bonding and assembling larger parts, or to create fills and blends. The line also consists of two-component adhesive formulated for PVC trim applications.
Fill & Flex: This product is optimal for expansion and contraction joints on PVC trim boards, sealing gaps around windows and doors. The line consists of slow curing, one-part, urethane-based sealant with a high level of flexibility and elongation to absorb expansion and contraction from heat or cold.
"We've been talking to builders and contractors to learn how we can make installing our trim and moulding products even easier, and we heard them loud and clear," said Loi McLoughlin, AZEK Building Products general manager of Trim. "We wanted to come out with an adhesive collection that would help contractors complete projects more efficiently and complement that with all the tools they would need on the job."
Based in Skokie, Ill. AZEK’s product lines include trim, decking, railing, moulding, porch and pavers as well as capped wood composite decking and railing under the TimberTech brand.
