Acrylic - A structural adhesive capable of bonding a broad range of substrates including most types of plastics and metals both minimally prepared and unprepared. Two-part catalyst cure or one part UV or heat cure available. Good to excellent flexibility and environmental resistance. Fast setting times.
Anaerobic - A one-part adhesive/sealant that cures only in the absence of air. Designed for locking screws, nuts, bolts and/or retaining bearings, shafts, etc...
Cyanoacrylate - A one-part adhesive that cures instantly on contact with mated surfaces. High strength, excellent adhesion to a wide variety of substrates. Cyanoacrylates are available in a variety of viscosities, cure speeds, gap-filling capability and surface compatibility.
Epoxy - Available in two-part or one-part, both room temperature and heat curable formulations, epoxy adhesives provide high strength bonds on a wide variety of substrates. The bond can often times be stronger than the parts being bonded. Epoxies are very tough with good chemical and environmental resistance. Epoxies come in variable cure speeds and have good void filling capabilities. They are also available with electrically and thermally conductive properties.
Hot Melt - A thermoplastic material that is melted in dispensing equipment and is applied in a molten state. It then wets the substrated surface and as it cools, it solidifies forming a bond. Very fast setting. Not a true structural but has the capability to bond a broad range of substrates.
Polyurethane - One- or two-part urethane adhesives provide superior bonds with minimal surface preparation for today's high performance thermo sets and thermoplastics. They provide excellent flexibility and durability. Polyurethanes cure via a catalyst, heat or air evaporation. Generally slower to cure with more challenging handling or curing properties.
Silicone - One-component adhesive/sealant that cures to a tough rubbery solid upon exposure to moisture in the air. Silicone has good resistance to weathering, vibration, moisture and chemicals. Silicone works in a temperature range from -76F to 600F.
Solvent Based - One-part solvent evaporation system with a rubber or plastic base. Contact cement, dip coatings, rubber bonding. Good product for laminating or for covering a large surface area economically.
U.V. Curable - Ultraviolet (UV) and visible light curing adhesives are used for bonding, coating, encapsulating, tacking and sealing. These single component, solvent free products cure in seconds when exposed to industrial UV/visible light sources. Some of these adhesives will cure with the light source, an activator or both.
Water Based - One-part water evaporation system with medium set time. Water based adhesives can be used in a wide variety of non-structural bonding applications. Excellent for paper, cardboard, wood, etc...
