Non-flammable Low-Odor Acrylic Adhesives
Do we still have to use the STINKY STUFF or is there a low odor adhesive?
Traditional methylmethacrylates (MMAs) are flammable and have an unusually strong odor. For many applications these acrylic adhesives are the absolute best choice. Their uncanny ability to form very strong bonds to a variety of materials, from thin aluminium truck panels to some of the toughest plastics, make them the desirable even if they do smell. Manufacturers that require strong bonds to thermoplastics, thermosets, metals and composites have relied on Permabond MMAs (methylmethacrylates) because without surface preparation, high bond strengths can still be achieved. They provide excellent durability and resistance to many common industrial solvents and fuels, as well as harsh environmental conditions. MMAs (methylmethacrylates) cure at room temperature and can be dispensed through static mixing nozzles, while maintaining good gap-filling and non-sag properties.
The Best of Both Worlds – Bond Strength and Low Odor– Non-flammable Acrylic Adhesives
New non-flammable acrylic adhesives Permabond TA452 and TA4522 provide good adhesion to many materials without the risks and costs a flammable product bring. The non-flammable acrylic adhesives are low odor adhesives which not only improve worker comfort, but reduce shipping, storage and ventilation costs. For many applications these non-flammable acrylic adhesives provide the best of both worlds.
The low odor adhesives are 2-part, 1:1 toughened acrylic adhesives can be used to bond a wide variety of materials including metals, plastics, GRP, ceramics, wood and other substrates. They also provide excellent durability and resistance to many common industrial solvents and fuels, as well as harsh environmental conditions. They are dispensed through static mix nozzles or applied bead-on-bead without static mixer.
