Permabond's line of structural acrylics was developed for demanding applications that require high tensile, shear and peel strength as well as maximum shock and impact resistance.
Permabond structural acrylics 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 acrylics are suitable for bonding a wide variety of substrates offering great material selection. Materials such as metals, glass and composites are easily bonded with Permabond structural acrylics.
Permabond offers several types of structural acrylic adhesive, no-mix adhesives with separate resin and initiator, single component, bead on bead and methyl-methacrylate based systems. For the no-mix products the adhesive is applied to one substrate and the activator is applied to the other. When the substrates are mated the cure will be initiated. This system is ideal for close fitting parts and where extended open time is required. For the bead on bead products, a bead on one part is directly applied over the other. When the substrates are mated sufficient mixing takes place to initiate the cure. For the methyl-methacrylate adhesives, these are available in easy to use 1:1 cartridges with static mixing nozzles.
Permabond structural adhesives are supported by a team of sales, customer service and technical professionals. This team will assist you in selecting the proper adhesive for you application or develop a product to meet your application's requirements.
