Xlynx Materials Releases New Polymer Molecular Glue: Bondlynx

September 29 2021

XlynX Materials (Victoria, B.C., Canada) has reported the creation of a new class of adhesives they are calling “molecular glues.” These make it possible to permanently adhere difficult-to-bond polymers such as polyethylene and polypropylene to themselves, and to other materials, through exceptionally strong chemical bonds.
Conventional adhesives typically take advantage of mechanical forces to hold materials together. BondLynx employs bis-diazirine chemistry to create covalent chemical bonds between polymer chains, permanently crosslinking them together through strong carbon-carbon bonds — the same type of joinery found between carbon atoms in the polymer chains themselves. Once BondLynx has been applied to a polymer, the crosslinking process can be initiated by heat, ultraviolet (UV)/visible light or an electric field, depending on the specific demands of the manufacturing process.
