Industrial adhesives Vs Consumer adhesives

What are industrial adhesives? How do they differ from consumer adhesives?  Strictly speaking, industrial adhesives are adhesives that are labeled for industrial use.  Various local and global bodies require industrial adhesives to include specific language on each label based on the chemistry.  With all that is required - it doesn't leave much room for images of a Go...

5-minute epoxy – more than the name implies

Recently I received a call for a 5-minute epoxy. In general terms, 5-minute epoxy is used to refer to two-component epoxy that start to set up in around 5 minutes.  But they are not all alike.  Epoxies can vary in viscosity, mix ratio, color, specific gravity, gap fill ability, hardness, elongation, dielectric strength, conductivity, strength, temperature resistance, an...

Industrial Adhesives for Dissimilar Substrates

Bonding Dissimilar Substrates It goes without saying that if you are bonding plastics use a plastic adhesive and if your bonding metal, an adhesive for metal.  It gets more complicated when you want to choose industrial adhesives to join dissimilar substrates. Plastic to Metal Industrial Adhesives Two HUGE categories here – there are likely an infinite number of com...
