Aluminium adhesive composition

Aluminium adhesive

A Methyl Methacrylate is basically the methyl ester of methacrylate acid. Its primary use is to manufacture a number of different plastics, but is also the main ingredient in a range of adhesives products. Methacrylate adhesives are supplied in a two part system, that when mixed offer a controlled cure speed suited to the application. The cured adhesive can offer incredibly high tensile, shear and peel strength, whilst also resisting impact loads at both elevated and sub zero temperatures. This unique chemistry is unrivalled in its ultimate combination of convenience and ease of use and has superior mechanical strengths for bonding engineered plastics, composites, aluminium and other metal bonding.

When using two part structural adhesives, it is always best to clean and prepare the surfaces prior to bonding them. If you are looking for an aluminium or metal glue or adhesive supplier in the UK, then please contact our technical department for more information.
