Permabond’s line of structural acrylic adhesives was developed for demanding applications that require high tensile, shear and peel strength as well as maximum shock and impact resistance.
Permabond structural acrylic adhesives offer fast fixture and cure at room temperature providing a solution to the continuous demands for increased line speeds while decreasing the manufacturing costs that are associated with heat curing.
Permabond structural acrylic adhesives are suitable for bonding a wide variety of substrates offering great material selection. Materials such as metals, glass, and composites are easily bonded.
Permabond offers several types of structural acrylic adhesive:
No-mix adhesives with separate resin and initiator – adhesive is applied to one substrate and the initiator is applied to the other
Single component – relies on at least one surface being an active metal to trigger the cure
Bead-on-bead – a bead of one part is directly applied over the other
Two-part pre-mix (use with mixing nozzles)
The structural acrylic range includes products based on MMA (methyl methacrylate.) Methyl methacrylate adhesives provide ultimate strength performance on plastics. These adhesives do have a distinct odour.
Acrylate based adhesives
Acrylate based adhesives are available in low odour formulations for improved worker comfort or for areas where ventilation is difficult, non-acidic formulations for sensitive electronic applications and a large variety of non-flammable structural acrylic adhesives.
