New Product: Adhesives For Composites

Three new structural adhesives are said to produce strong, flexible bonds on composites and provide medium to long-working times for large assemblies.

MA530, MA560-1, and MA590 are 100% reactive, nonsagging gels for joining ABS, acrylics, FRP, gelcoats, polyesters (including DCPD modified), PVC, styrenics, and vinyl esters They require little or no surface preparation and cure at room temperature to bonds that withstand service temperatures of –40 to 180°F. They can be dispensed manually or with standard meter-mix equipment.
