Permabond is delighted to announce the launch of its new fast-curing, high-strength fire retardant adhesive TA4230, which has been third party tested to meet UL94-V0 requirements.


This is truly a groundbreaking product, being both tougher and faster-curing than most other fire retardant adhesives on the market. A 2-part, 1:1 mix ratio, toughened acrylic adhesive, TA4230 can bond to a wide variety of substrates including metals, plastics, composites and ceramics, among others. In addition to this, it provides an excellent shear strength on many substrates with very little surface preparation. 


See just how effective TA4230 is at putting out fires in the video below! When compared to TA4207, another of our structural acrylic adhesives, the fire stands almost no chance at all.


TA4230 achieves a room temperature handling strength in between 10 and 20 minutes. This results in faster production times, with no need to clamp any bonded substrates for long periods of time before use. This, in addition to TA4230’s high impact resistance, results in a super-strong bond that can withstand much more than just fire! 


The table below shows the performance of Permabond TA4230 in comparison to other fire-retardant adhesives on the market:
