Aluminium adhesive

CTA supply a fantastic range of aluminium adhesives. Within our two part structural acrylic range of adhesives we have several products which are suitable to bond or ‘glue’ aluminium together. This range is also capable of bonding steel, mild steel or galvanised steel and glue together many more types of metals. As you can see from the image later on, our aluminium adhesive can be easily and neatly applied within a relatively small surface area to achieve a fantastic bond.

Aluminium adhesive product range

Open times vary from 4 – 50 minutes

There are different types of structural adhesives: Methacrylate, Acrylic and Epoxy variations.


What are the primary aluminium adhesive applications?

We supply into various industries such as Industrial, Construction, Marine, Automotive and Transportation. If you need to bond aluminium in any industry, our adhesives are ideal for butt joint or top-hat sections. In industrial applications such as signage, our aluminium adhesives can be used when constructing aluminium light boxes.

What is the composition of CTA’s 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.

Aluminium adhesive

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.
