Franklin Adhesives & Polymers, a division of Franklin International has introduced FilterFAB 150 sealant for bonding pleated glass or paper media to the frames of air intake panel filters. FilterFAB 150 is designed to speed up assembly in the filter plant. Its fiber-filled, vinyl acrylic copolymer composition blends high viscosity and high solids into a thick formula that dries quickly and remains flexible over time. Instant set time eliminates the need for clamping to simplify and accelerate filter production.
The newest FilterFAB product also is versatile and adheres to frames made from a diversity of materials, including steel, wood, plastic and aluminum. Although its primary purpose is to bond the media to the frames—the sealant typically is applied to the trough of the frame and the assembly then wrapped around the pleated media—it also serves to seal joints in a broad array of indoor and outdoor HVAC duct systems.
