About Born2Bond Structural Cyanoacrylate Adhesive
Born2Bond™ Structural Cyanoacrylate Adhesive is a high-strength, high-temperature (120°C) hybrid cyanoacrylate adhesive that provides a fast fixture time at room temperature while maintaining good processability and the capability to bond gaps up to 5mm. This product offers excellent bonding characteristics to a large variety of substrates, including aluminium, plastics and elastomers, but also porous substrates, such as woods, chipboard and leather.
Born2Bond Structural is the toughest structural, fast cure two part (2K) cyanoacrylate adhesive on the market, with the longest open time.
Born2Bond Structural offers “on demand” structural bonding. Once mixed and applied, the exposed dot or bead has an open time of up to 30 minutes – but a fixture time of only seconds once the parts are assembled. This fixture and ultimate cure time compares favourably with other structural adhesive chemistries.
Formulated using MECA (methoxyethyl cyanoacrylate) chemistry, Born2Bond Structural is able to withstand temperatures up to 120°C, far exceeding the capabilities of standard cyanoacrylate adhesives. It offers a balance between bonding speed, long open time, bond strength (>6 MPa), and impact and environmental resistance.
Born2Bond Structural is supplied in a syringe cartridge, available in 10g and 50g sizes. Both cartridges come with static mixing nozzles. The 10g size is suitable for manual application and comes with a plunger. The 50g size is used with a dispensing gun for manual application, or can be integrated into automation.
