Two part structural adhesives technical information

Structural Adhesives 2202 /2206 and 2203NF are methyl methacrylate is the methyl ester of methacrylate acid. Its primary use is to manufacture a number of different plastics, but it is also the main ingredient in our range of adhesive 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.

New Generation adhesives 2202 and 2206 offer high functional shear strength after the initial cure, which when further increases following an additional heat process.  This unique chemistry allows these grades to not only maintain a high functional strength through the powder coating process, but actually improve in all aspects of functional strength performance.  Both systems share common attributes, differing only in functional cure-speeds, allowing good application diversity from the same core chemistry.

2203NF is a non-flammable, new generation adhesive and represents a new level of performance for all 10:1 low shrinkage high elongation structural Methacrylate adhesive.  2203 offers a very tough and flexible bond, with high peel, fatigue and impact strength, at both low and elevated temperatures.  Formulated from our innovative and bespoke blend of low-odour, non-flammable and non-carcinogenic monomers, this grade further extends our progress into responsible chemistry.

Two part structural adhesive 2202, 2206 and 2203NF are unrivalled in terms of convenience, ease of use and superior mechanical strength. Use for bonding aluminium, stainless steel. mild steel, UPVC, Polyesters, Granite, Marble, to name just a few compatible substrates.  For more information please request our technical data sheets.

 

Structural Adhesives 2202, 2206 & 2203NF – How to apply

Our two part 10:1 ratio new generation, structural adhesive 2202 has a 2-4 minute open time and a Fixture time of 4-6 minutes.  2206 has a 6-10 minute open time and a Fixture time of 12-15 minutes.  2203NF has an open time of 3-4 minutes and a Fixture time of 7/10 minutes.Once mixed the working time of both products is the period whereby the adhesive remains fluid and is easily transferable between two or more mating surfaces.  Temperature, volume and substrate have a direct effect on the length of this period as both products cure by exothermic reaction.  Higher temperatures and larger volumes speed the reaction causing a reduction in open and cure time.  Lower temperatures and smaller volumes slow the reaction time extending both the open and time and ultimate full cure time.  Before dispensing, ensure that surfaces are clean, dry and free of any dirt, dust and grease. For the best results, we recommend using CTA IPA Cleaner Degreaser.

  • Use sufficient pressure over the whole surface at room temperature to ensure maximum adhesion to substrates.
  • The ideal application temperature is between 21 – 40°C.
  • Primers can increase the bond performance and surface tension.
  • Ensure uniform stress distribution.

Adhesive vs welding and mechanical fixing

Adhesive vs welding and mechanical fixing… a thought happening much more frequently in today’s modern manufacturing times. Which would you choose for your application?  What do you currently use in the work place, is it the right way?  How can you be sure that a structural adhesive will be strong enough to replace welding or mechanical fixing?

We have provided a useful reference chart to show the advantages of bonding methods at a glance:

Thousands of industries are choosing high performance structural acrylic adhesives and replacing standard joining methods such as welding and mechanical fasteners such as rivets or bolts and we agree with them.  All the answers are pointing to structural adhesive as the best way to go, read on for more information and helpful insights.

adhesive-vs-weld-and-mechanical-fixing

Performance and economic drivers are compelling users to let go of old methods which are costly solutions and swap them for the less expensive and more advantageous option of adhesive bonding.  Yes it is time to wave good-bye to old fashioned joining processes and move into the future to the new line of high performing structural adhesives such as CTA 2105 and Fusionbond 372

fusionbond-372

Advantages of structural adhesives

Structural adhesives are cost effective and will help cut manufacturing costs by reducing the number of mechanical fasteners, spot welds and filler metal required to create a joint or attach two substrates.  Adhesive joint design.

In the manufacturing process, adhesives are generally hidden between two substrates, which can offer aesthetic improvements over welding and mechanical fasteners.  An adhesive bonded joint will result in a smooth, clean surface, which requires minimal surface preparation prior to final finishing. Therefore, manufacturers can eliminate labour intensive finishing costs such as sanding off imperfections from spot welding.

A huge superiority to advanced product design is that adhesives can be pre applied to parts otherwise inaccessible to mechanical fastening or welding during the assembly process.  This revelation enables engineers not to be bound in their innovation of design by previous obstacles such as space or accessibility.  An additional benefit is the reduction in the amount of time it takes to join substrates.  Welding or installing mechanical fasteners is generally more time consuming compared to using a structural adhesive.

Structural adhesives excel in joining dissimilar substrates and materials with different thicknesses.  Adhesive compensates for the differences in expansion and contraction in dissimilar materials.  High performance structural adhesives can form resilient bonds and maintain strength over a wide range of temperatures.

Adhesives have the ability to eliminate stress concentration caused by spot welds, rivers, screws, and other mechanical fasteners while maintaining surface integrity. Where as a rivet or screw hole in a substrate concentrates the stress at the hole, which can potentially decrease the physical properties of the substrate, adhesives spread the load over the entire bonded area.  Visit adhesive stress loads.

Using structural adhesives can reduce the weight of finished product or structure because less welding metals and mechanical fasteners are used.  Additionally, eliminating screw holes and rivets in the assembly process enables manufacturers to utilise thinner, lighter materials without concerns of distortion, splitting, or crazing at the mechanically fastened site.  An added benefit of eliminating the holes in metal is that it can also reduce the chance of rust and corrosion.

Unlike welding, structural adhesives have the ability to maintain the integrity of the bonded materials because there is no metal distortion or weakening due to heat when using adhesives.  Structural adhesives can also increase the stiffness of structures and provide the necessary fatigue and force resistance.

Adhesive vs welding and mechanical fixing –

Who is choosing structural adhesive?

The answer is “everyone”.  New applications are being developed and tested daily.  Reports from the agricultural industry show workers are repairing metal fences using structural adhesives instead of welding.  Marine industry manufacturers are bonding parts using structural adhesives in applications that require high resistance to chemicals like kerosene, hydrocarbon oil, mineral spirits, and ethylene glycol.  The automotive industry is moving away from rivets in favour of structural adhesives due to a combination of corrosion resistance, stress relief and cost reduction.  Aerospace engineers were among the earliest industries to adopt structural adhesives, mainly because adhesives can create seals that keep water out of metal fabrications while providing corrosion protection.

If you have an application and would like to discuss further with our technical team or would like a site visit or demonstration please contact us.  We have a fantastic range of high performance structural adhesives specifically for product assembly application.
