We have been working with our suppliers for almost a year now to bring in a high grade polyurethane adhesive: Silaprene SolidBond . This product is a great alternative to Sika 252, with a number of significant advantages. This stuff guns easily, even at low temperatures. In testing, I have gunned it easily down to 40 degrees. Try that with Sika! The soft creamy consistency is also easy to trowel or spread after gunning. There is no odor during use or after. The open working time is 40 minutes, and because the product is so easy to apply, the working time ends up even better. This adhesive is German manufactured, and is designed for use in the heavy truck and auto industry. The cured film boasts a very impressive 475 PSI tensile strength and 350% elongation before shear. Wet clean up is with hot soapy water. Cured removal requires mechanical separation. This stuff has all the qualities of a great professional adhesive, and the ease of use makes it especially good for any DIY project. It bonds to a wide variety of substrates without the need for primers in most cases. It can be used in interior and exterior applications. It has excellent weathering characteristics and is UV stable. It is not on our website yet, so for now email us for details. We will be getting our first stocking order in a few weeks. It will be on the website when it arrives. We will offer it in black and white, by the case or by the tube.

This product is perfect for composite panel construction and anywhere that high bond strength and extreme resistance to vibration and flexing are required. I've been using this product for a couple of years, and it has become my go-to adhesive for most uses.

Do you know what are some of the benefits vs sika 252
They are very similar in mechanical characteristics. The primary advantage is the easy of use. Silaprene guns like soft caulk, even at low temps. It does not require a power gun for larger jobs.
