Structural Adhesives

Structural Adhesives

Structural adhesives provide strong, load bearing joints for engineering and industrial applications. Our range includes:

  1. Epoxy, methacrylate and polyurethane chemistries
  2. Bonding to most substrates used in industry, including metal, glass, ceramic, rubber, and all types of plastic, including low surface energy polyolefins
  3. Clear versions for light transmission or aesthetics
  4. Fast cure, slow cure, UV and light cure
  5. Chemical, fuel and solvent resistant
  6. Flexible or rigid
  7. Thick and viscous to thin and runny
  8. Resistant to high and low operating temperatures

Adhesive Problem? What’s the cure?

The use of adhesives for structural bonding is on the increase. For a successful assembly, the adhesive must “harden” in the bondline to provide a joint which is capable of bearing the forces to which it is subjected for its lifetime, whatever environmental factors are thrown at it. Understanding how this works is important both for adhesive selection, and specification of the bonding process.
