CHENNAI, India (July 2, 2008) — Momentive Performance Materials Inc. and Anabond Inc. are joining to develop and make SPUR — silicone/polyurethane hybrid — sealants in India.
The companies aim to launch the products by the third quarter of this year.
Momentive will contribute its research, development support and expertise in SPUR prepolymers, while Chennai-based Anabond will manufacture the product in its Puducherry plant to serve the local market.
Momentive will market SPUR sealants for construction while Anabond will handle them to automotive and electrical and electronics users, under license from Momentive.
According to Momentive, hybrid SPUR sealants are nonstaining, nonbleeding, paintable and have high strength. As well as offering primerless adhesion, they cure rapidly and give good durability.
