Featured Building Components Product: HOW BOSTIK’S PRO-MS 50 STANDS OUT IN THE MARKET

The construction sealants industry continues to grow and is cited to be worth $8.93 billion by 2020. This growth has increased demand for quality sealant products across the construction market.

Bostik’s Pro-MS 50 is one product in particular that stands out.

What is Pro-MS 50?

Pro-MS 50 is a one-component, low modulus and solvent-free Silyl Modified Polyether sealant. This construction sealant product is used to waterproof various applications including:

  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Facades and siding
  • Roofs 

Pro-MS 50 is Safe:

Pro-MS 50’s formulation contains no solvents or isocyanates. In our recent blog, we discussed the importance of decreasing installers’ exposure to solvents due to their adverse health effects.

Pro-MS 50 has Adhesion to Kynar 500® Resin-Based Coatings:

For over 50 years, Arkema’s Kynar 500 resins-based coatings have been the standard for coating metals in the construction industry. Kynar resin-based coatings protect aluminum, galvanized steel and aluminum steel. These high-performance fluoropolymer resins also have an extraordinary capability to retain color and gloss.

Yet due to their slick tendencies, these coatings have historically made adhering to their surfaces difficult. Bostik’s Pro-MS 50 has adhesion to Kynar resin-based coatings and comes with a best-in-class warranty. This product also provides a watertight bond, and its formula passes the Miami-Dade Control board building code for hurricane zones.

Pro-MS 50 can also bond to PVC trim, vinyl and other difficult-to-bond-to substrates.

Pro-MS 50 has AAMA Certification:

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) is the leading trade association for window, door, skylight, curtain wall and storefront manufacturers and suppliers. It effectively influences codes and construction and specification issues.

For a product to have AAMA certification, it must pass a series of tests and specifications proving its resistance to water penetration, wind pressure and air leakage. This stringent program is the only one in the window and door industry that requires components used in the assembly process to pass a series of performance tests.

Bostik’s Pro-MS 50 received AAMA certification as an exterior perimeter sealing compound. For more information about this product’s testing process, call 800-7-BOSTIK.

The Sealant, Waterproofing and Restoration Institute also is validating Pro-MS 50 as a waterproofing sealant. Find out what it means to have this validation in our recent blog.

More Ways Pro-MS 50 Stands Out in the Sealant Industry:

  • Asphalt compatible
  • Can be painted within a few hours
  • Will not discolor
  • Remains flexible and pliable over its life time
  • Has 50% joint movement (twice what a typical sealant has)
