|Bostik, Inc. has developed HXD Technology, an exclusive formulation offering a high performance resin system in pre-mixed grout, according to the company.|
Bostik HXD (High Cross-Linking Density) Technology contains an exceptionally high concentration of cross-linking molecules offering a larger, unified polymer structure or macro-molecule, which is incredibly durable and resistant to penetration and staining from fluids, said the company. These characteristics provide outstanding performance in wet environments, further enhanced by proprietary additives that repel stains.
Initiated when Bostik launched its RapidCure formulations, HXD has been further refined over the past 12 months. As the pioneer of the industry’s premium, pre-mixed grout category, Bostik clearly understands the myriad of demands placed on pre-mixed grouts, the company said. As a result, the firm has engineered this exclusive resin system, which is available in its TruColor RapidCure, QuartzLock2, RapidCure, Dimension RapidCure and Neverseal products.
“The old adage, ‘you get what you pay for’ holds true here. Bostik conducts comprehensive material science research on a global basis, using the best performing polymers available to solve application challenges,” stated Scott Banda, director of marketing for Bostik’s consumer and construction business. “We collaborate in research with global specialty polymer producers, operating in numerous challenging markets such as aerospace, marine, transportation, energy and personal hygiene. This intense and extensive experience in the harshest of environments has enabled Bostik to develop its HXD Technology.”
