New All-Purpose Hybrid Epoxy Offers Increased Work Time

Manus Products has expanded its Flex-Weld product line. Following more than 10 years of success with Flex-Weld 5, 15, 15 Non-Sag, and 25, Manus has added Flex-Weld 90. With Flex-Weld 90, users have an increased work time. Flex-Weld is an all-purpose, hybrid epoxy that provides excellent tensile, peel, and shear strength and that is light-stable and highly UV resistant. According to the company, it exhibits superior adhesion and flexibility to a wide variety of substrates including ceramics, concrete, wood, composites, FRP, and most metals — without the use of a primer. At a 1:1 volume mix ratio, Flex-Weld is designed to be user-friendly and forgiving, retaining high peel strength and flexibility through a wide temperature range.

Manus Products Breaks Ground on New Building for Further Expansion

In 2019, Manus Products will celebrate its 60th year. To commemorate its 60 years as well as to provide additional space for its growth, Manus Products has broken ground on its third building at its Waconia, MN campus. The new building will have the capability for R&D, production, and warehousing operations. In addition to the three buildings at its Waconia, MN campus, Manus Products has additional facilities in Chaska, MN and Naples, FL.

Since 1959, Manus has been developing, formulating, and manufacturing custom and innovative solutions for the adhesive, sealant, caulking, tape, and coating needs of the trailer, transportation (road, rail, and aerospace), construction, and OEM industries. Manus launched the first hybrid polymer product (Manus-Bond 75-AM) in the US over 20 years ago and has continued to lead the industry in research and development of adhesives and sealants based on hybrid-polymer technologies. Hybrids overcome many of the short comings of pure polyurethane or silicone systems. In addition to Manus-Bond 75-AM, Manus manufactures Manus-Bond Flex-Weld (a two-part, hybrid-polymer, high-strength epoxy), various self-leveling formulas, and a wide range of butyl products, including tapes and gun-grade, and neoprene products. Manus also has silicone adhesives and sealants.
