Our two part structural adhesive is much more than just a metal glue, it’s a very versatile, Methacrylate acrylic adhesive and part of our structural bonding range. This product can be used to bond or glue various metal joints together in architectural cladding applications. It is used extensively as a metal-to-metal glue, steel-to-steel, or aluminium-to-aluminium adhesive. It has a high temperature resistance, tensile and shear performance.
Our two part structural adhesive 2105 is also suitable for composites or metal brackets to GRP / FRP composite structures / Carbon fibre. For bonding metal to composites, 2105 obtains a higher shear strength than the composite layers, therefore achieving a structural bond between the metal and the composite panel. It is an excellent engineering and manufacturing adhesive.
Working time: 5 – 7 minutes
Fixture time: 7 – 10 minutes
Temperature range: -55°C to 120°C (short term 220°C)
Paint / Powder coat cycle: 20 minutes @ 220°C
Available in 25ml, 50ml and 400ml.
CTA Ltd. is one of the few specialist UK adhesive companies who offer such a large range of metal bonding products.

For more options, see our CTA two part structural adhesive 2120 (12 – 15 minute working life with a 20 – 25 minute fixture time) and our CTA two part structural adhesive 2150 (35 – 40 minute working life with a 40 – 60 minute fixture time).
Two part structural adhesives technical information
A 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 metal 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.
The unique chemistry of our two part structural adhesive 2105 is unrivalled in terms of convenience, ease of use and superior mechanical strength. Use for bonding engineered plastics, composites, steel, aluminium and other alloys. This is metal glue at it’s best.
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.
