Reinvent bonding in a matter of seconds with Black Mamba FHG®. This all-round adhesive and joint sealant seamlessly replaces silicone, screws, clamps, clips, or wood. With its high, immediate holding strength and elasticity, it becomes an obvious choice for various installations
Black Mamba FHG® is a hybrid formula that effectively combines the strength of polyurethane with the insulation and weathering resistance properties of silicone. Furthermore, it serves as a high-performance adhesive, showcasing exceptional bonding capabilities, and delivering the best of both materials. Its remarkable durability, flexibility, and resistance to moisture, diverse weather conditions, and UV radiation establish it as the preferred choice for demanding applications across various industries, from construction and signage to marine and transportation. In these sectors, it stands out as a reliable, efficient, and cost-effective solution for all your sealing and bonding needs.
Why Elastic Bonding?
Improved Stress Distribution
By providing an even distribution of stress across the entire bond line, it helps prevent localized stresses and reduces the risk of cracks or failures.
Unlike mechanical jointing techniques, it can withstand a greater degree of movement and vibration, making it a more durable and long-lasting solution.
Because it can bond dissimilar materials, it often eliminates the need for heavier mechanical fasteners, thereby reducing weight and improving fuel efficiency.
Additionally, it can provide a smooth, seamless appearance with no visible fasteners or joints, enhancing the overall aesthetics of the finished product.
Black Mamba FHG®
With its unique combination of properties, it outperforms traditional silicone and polyurethane sealants in many ways.
Silicones vs Black Mamba FHG®
Low Odour: In contrast to traditional silicone sealants, Black Mamba FHG® stands out with its low odour during application and curing, creating a more pleasant working environment in enclosed spaces.
Faster Skin-over time: Additionally, it boasts a faster skin-over time compared to silicone sealants, allowing for quicker installation and reducing the risk of surface contamination.
Paintable: An additional advantage is that it can be painted over after it has cured, distinguishing it from silicones sealants.
Non-staining: Most silicone sealants contain “silicone oil” that can seep into adjacent substrates and stain porous materials like marble or granite. In contrast, Black Mamba FHG® does not contain silicone oil, thereby eliminating the risk of oil staining and the aesthetic issues caused by migration.
Polyurethane Vs Black Mamba FHG®
No Shrinkage: While polyurethane sealants contain solvents that evaporate during the curing process, leading to shrinkage and recessed joints, Black Mamba FHG® avoids this issue entirely by not containing any solvents or water.
No Blistering: In contrast to polyurethane sealants that contain isocyanate, a chemical prone to reacting with moisture and causing blisters during curing, Black Mamba FHG® is free from isocyanate, ensuring a blister-free application.
Weathering Resistance: Notably, it excels in weathering and UV resistance when compared to polyurethane sealants. This enhanced resistance translates to increased durability and reduced susceptibility to cracks, resulting in a longer service life and decreased maintenance requirements.

Adhesion to various substrates
As a versatile alternative to welding and mechanical fasteners in sign fabrication, it showcases the unique ability to bond dissimilar materials, provide insulation against galvanic corrosion, and exhibit exceptional environmental resistance.
For industrial applications, it finds utility in air conditioning equipment, prefabricated structures, and sealing sandwich panels in refrigeration installations. It also serves as a reliable solution for basic maintenance needs.
Within the transportation sector, it plays a significant role in the automotive industry. Its applications include bodywork assembly, sealing and bonding of windows, windshields, prefabricated pieces, as well as sealing floors, roofs, and side panels.
With its adherence to diverse materials, it proves ideal for marine applications such as teak deck caulking, elastic bonding of frames, profiles, plates, and sealing seams, overlaps, joints, and cracks.
Known for its user-friendly nature, it is a preferred choice in the construction industry. It serves various purposes, from sealing around windows and doors made of aluminum, PVC, wood, or a combination of materials to being used for expansion joints in precast concrete or natural stone facades, bonding interior and exterior cladding panels, joining and sealing multi-material covers, as well as filling and repairing fissures and cracks in flooring.
It can powerfully adhere to most materials and substrates such as
✓ Metals, Aluminum and other alloys
✓ Galvanized Steel
✓ Powder Coated metal
✓ Glass and laminated glass
✓ Wallboards and gypsum
✓ Bricks and concrete
✓ Natural Stone
