STRUCTURAL ADHESIVES

Structural Adhesives

Structural adhesives from Araldite® (Huntsman Advanced Materials), Epic Resins, Vitrobond®, Parbond & Everwide Chemical are load-bearing adhesives that are able to withstand high-stress loads during operation without causing any failure in the joints. Structural adhesives like 1 component & 2 component epoxies, polyurethanes and methacrylate adhesives provide exceptional adhesion strength to interconnected joints even when it is exposed to extreme weathering, vibration, impact, cyclical temperatures, without any bonding integrity issues or failures. 

The main advantage of using structural adhesives versus traditional mechanical fasteners is its distribution of stress across the bonding surface as compared to specific stress spots if fasteners were being used. With flexibility property, these structural adhesives are able to absorb impact and act as a dampener and easing stress on bonded parts substantially. 

The key benefits of using structural adhesives:

  • Reduce the use of fasteners and screws for strength enhancement.
  • Aesthetically appealing.
  • Able to bond dissimilar substrate materials.
  • Fast setting and handling time.
  • Even distribution of stress load.
  • Will not cause corrosion on metal joint parts
  • Large gap-filling ability.
  • Easy to set up and use with user-friendly packaging.
