CTA 2155 is a two component crystal clear structural methacrylate with a 1:1 ratio adhesive. It was designed for the bonding of high strength plastic and composites. This grade is an advanced liquid composite which combines shock resistance and toughness from a unique blend of hybrid rubbers. It has a high tensile shear strength from an innovative liquid plastic resin. High viscosity non slump. Eliminates stress cracking. Once bonded with fusion of chemistries achieves an ultra high strength bond with excellent chemical and environmental resistance.
Working time: 1 – 2 minutes
Fixture time: 4 – 5 minutes
Temperature range: -55°C to + 125°C (Short term 220°C)
Available in 50ml and 400ml.
Benefits of two part crystal clear adhesive
2155 two component crystal clear structural methacrylate adhesive is very versatile, can bond a wide variety of substrates to plastic without the need for surface primers or conditioners. Typical examples shown below:
- Crystal Clear / Transparent adhesive
- Bonding polycarbonate letters in the sign industry
- Bonding acrylic in POS manufacture
- Repairing polycarbonate headlights
- Bonding outdoor lighting lenses and fixtures
- Assembling electric meter housings and covers
- Gap fill 3mm
How to apply two part structural adhesives
Our two part structural adhesive 2105 has a five minute working life with a 12 minute fixture 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 15 – 25°C.
- Primers can increase the bond durability and surface tension for difficult to bond materials. We recommend CTA Primer or CTA UV Identifiable Primer to achieve the best results.
- Ensure uniform stress distribution.
