About Structural Adhesives

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

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