Innovation

Chem Link as a company is known for innovation. From the introduction of plural-component elastomeric urethanes for construction and abrasion back in 1990 to the development of our M-1 cleanroom adhesive and sealant, we have been devoted to innovating low risk products since day one. With over 60 years combined experience and over 25 years of experience with polyether and silicone technology, our fully staffed R&D facility continues to test and develop new products and formulations to ensure we continue to innovate and look to improve our products for the future. 

Throughout the years, our drive for innovation has brought us to the advanced polymer technology that we use today. We have developed products that are solvent free, nonflammable and emit no odors, making them environmentally friendly and pose no risk to human health. Our products are 100% solids, low VOC, carcinogen free and have excellent physical properties such as strength, elasticity, adhesion and weathering, while providing excellent product performance.

This drive for innovation also allowed us to pioneer the development of STPE, Polyether & MS Polymers. These technologies are hybrid products of silicone and polyurethane technologies. By combining their chemistries, the most desirable features of each are brought together to create a safe, durable and high quality product.
