Best Adhesives for Bonding Metal to Metal or Nonmetal

Metal Bonding Adhesive

Metals are readily bonded with a variety of adhesives.  It can be challenging to chose the best metal adhesive given the vast number of options.  Each chemistry has its own unique benefits.

Structural adhesives, such as structural acrylic adhesives and epoxies are ideal metal adhesives for forming strong bonds that resist stress, temperature, chemicals.

Anaerobic adhesives are used as a threadlocker, pipe thread sealant, retaining compound or FIP gasket.  Anaerobic adhesives are only used as metal adhesive and sealants.  They do not cure on other substrates  such as glass and plastic.

Cyanoacrylate adhesive develop strength very quickly.  Consider the methyl cyanoacrylate, Permabond 910® which is the original cyanoacrylate metal adhesive if you need strength quickly.  These bonds perform well in shear and resist non polar solvents.  If you require and adhesive for metal that provides impact resistance or resistance to polar solvents consider structural acrylics.

UV Curable adhesives are ideal for invisible bonds between glass and metal.  These are used extensively to bond metal hinges, knobs, and fixtures to glass doors.

MS Polymer adhesive are ideal metal adhesives for thin sheets of metal – such as truck panel bonding, where the low shrinkage provides no read through (you can’t see where the adhesive is placed through the panel) providing a good aesthetic finish.

Permabond adhesives are supported by a team of sales, customer service, and technical professionals. This team will assist you in selecting the proper adhesive for metal for your application or develop a product to meet your application’s requirements.
