Structural Acrylic Adhesives

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 continuous demand 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. They easily bond metals, glass, and composites.

Permabond offers several types of structural acrylic adhesive:

  • No-mix adhesives with separate resin and initiator. Apply the adhesive to one substrate and then the initiator to the other.
  • Single component – relies on at least one surface being an active metal to trigger the cure
  • Bead-on-bead – Apply a bead of one part directly over the other part.
  • Two-part pre-mix (use with mixing nozzles)

The benefits of using Permabond Structural Acrylic adhesives include:

  • Room Temperature Cure – eliminates ovens and other equipment.
  • Rapid Cure – increases daily output to reduce production costs.
  • Versatile – suitable for bonding a wide variety of substrates to increase design freedom.
  • Technical Support – application specialists available for assistance with joint design, adhesive selection, and production process.

Methacrylate adhesives

The structural acrylic range includes products based on MMA (methyl methacrylate.) Methyl methacrylate adhesives provide the ultimate strength performance on plastics.  However, these adhesives do have a distinct odor.

Acrylate based adhesives

Acrylate based adhesives are available in low odor formulations for improved worker comfort or for areas where ventilation is difficult. They also come in non-acidic formulations for sensitive electronic applications, as well as a large variety of non-flammable structural acrylic adhesives.

Our team of sales, customer service, and technical professionals will assist you in selecting the proper adhesive for your application or developing a product to meet your application’s requirements.
