PERMABOND 101 Wicking Grade Cyanoacrylate Adhesive
PERMABOND 101 is a low viscosity product useful in wicking or penetrating applications or bonding closely fitting parts. It is fast setting and suitable for use on plastics, rubber, and metals.
- Ultra-low viscosity
- Suitable for bonding pre-assembled parts
- Ideal for close-fitting plastic components
- Approved to MIL-A-46050C Type II Class 1 (existing designs) & CID A-A-3097 Type II Class 1 (new designs)
Cyanoacrylate adhesives are single component adhesives that polymerize rapidly when pressed into
a thin film between parts. The moisture adsorbed on the surface initiates the curing of the adhesive.
Strong bonds are developed extremely fast and on a great variety of materials. These properties make
PERMABOND cyanoacrylates the ideal adhesives for high-speed production lines.
Surface Preparation prior to bonding with Permabond 101
Surfaces should be clean, dry and grease-free before applying the adhesive. Use a suitable solvent (such as acetone or isopropanol) for the degreasing of surfaces. Some metals such as aluminum, copper and its alloys will benefit from light abrasion with emery cloth (or similar), to remove the oxide layer.
Permabond 101 Directions for Use
1) Apply the adhesive sparingly to one surface.
2) Bring the components together quickly and correctly aligned.
3) Apply sufficient pressure to ensure the adhesive spreads into a thin film.
4) Do not disturb or re-align until sufficient strength is achieved, normally in a few seconds.
5) Any surplus adhesive can be removed with Permabond CA solvent, nitromethane or acetone.
For difficult or porous surfaces using a Permabond activator is recommended. If bonding polypropylene, polyethylene, PTFE or silicone, prime first with Permabond Polyolefin Primer (POP).
