These provide the ideal properties for quickly forming strong bonds between composites such as carbon fiber to foams and other padding on medical appliances.
Cyanoacrylates – also called instant adhesives because many achieve handling strength in less than 10 seconds. High performance grades include high temperature resistance, low odor, non-blooming, and grades that will cure quickly on acidic surfaces.
Two component Acrylics –
No Mix Acrylic and Initiator provide structural bonds that fill and seal joints.
No Mix Acrylic and Initiator systems are non-flammable in the liquid state and can reach handling strength in as little as 10 seconds.
Epoxies provide the ultimate bond performance of high shear, impact strength, and environmental resistance. Ideal for applications involving composite bonding of bike frames, golf clubs, and other sporting equipment.
Epoxies are available in one and two components. One component epoxies cure with heat. Two component epoxies cure at room temperature. But can be heated to speed cure or, in some cases, to enhance performance properties such as strength and temperature resistance.
Modified Epoxies and MS Polymers also bond composites
These provide the flexibility and low shrinkage. These properties are needed to eliminate read through in many thin panel composite bonding applications. Examples include trucks, trailers, and planes. The high elongation and excellent peel strength provide toughness and durability to joints.
MS Polymers are single component room temperature cure adhesives
