adhere General Purpose Cyanoacrylate Adhesive
About General Purpose Cyanoacrylate Adhesive
adhere 9420 general purpose cyanoacrylate adhesive is a very low viscosity, wicking grade adhesive for numerous applications in high technology, high performance industrial assembly. It is part of our adhere Cyanoacrylate Adhesive range, which also includes rubber toughened, surface insensitive, and low odour, low bloom products.
adhere Cyanoacrylate Adhesives are superior quality, high purity single part professional adhesives which have numerous applications in all aspects of high technology, high performance assembly. Curing at room temperature in seconds, they provide excellent bond strength on a wide range of similar and dissimilar substrates.
Single component systems, adhere Cyanoacrylate Adhesives are fast and easy to use. They require no mixing or heating, and parts being bonded do not need clamping. They are solvent free. They achieve high tensile and shear strengths.
Cyanoacrylate adhesives (CA’s) are sometimes generically known as “superglues” or “instant adhesives”.
Their high quality formulation and manufacture ensures excellent manufacturing repeatability and high stability – facilitating long shelf life. The application of adhere Cyanoacrylate Adhesives can be automated easily for highly efficient production line use; ask us about a complete line of suitable dispensing equipment.
The range also includes an activator for even faster cures, and a primer which facilitates bonding of difficult to bond plastics.

Guidelines for Use
Cure speed is very fast, so ensure that it properly aligned the parts before assembling with adhesive. ADH 9455 Activator may be used if there are any gaps or porous surfaces. Some plastics or rubbers may have better bonding performance with the use of ADH 9770 Primer. Ensure parts are clean, dry and free from oil and grease. If necessary, use a suitable cleaner prior to bonding. Cyanoacrylate adhesives can be hand applied direct from the bottle – a suitable dispensing needle can be added to the bottle nozzle for more precision. The application of adhere Cyanoacrylate Adhesives can be automated easily for highly efficient production line use; ask us about our complete line of suitable dispensing equipment.
Apply the adhesive sparingly to one surface and press parts firmly together until handling strength is achieved. As a general rule, as little cyanoacrylate adhesive as possible should be used – over-application will result in slow cure speed and lower bond strength.
We do not normally recommend cyanoacrylate adhesives for structural glass bonding. Whilst the initial bond strength may be high, it tends to decrease with age. We have other structural adhesives, including light curing adhesives, which are likely to give more durable and robust bonds.
Cure speed is dependent on the substrates to be bonded. Best results come with close-fitting parts. Larger bondline gaps will give longer cure times. ADH 9455 Activator can be used to increase cure speed (some loss of optimal bond strength can result). Low temperature and low humidity will tend to slow up the curing process.
adhere Cyanoacrylate Adhesives have very good chemical resistance to most oils, leaded petrol, alcohols and light duty cleaning solvents. Cyanoacrylates are not resistant to high levels of moisture and humidity over time.
Store in a cool, dry area out of direct sunlight to achieve 12 months shelf-life. Refrigeration to 5 °C will help give optimal stability.
