Bonding plastic parts is increasingly recognized as a major challenge in many assembly operations. Master Bond has developed a comprehensive line of adhesive systems designed to bond plastic substrates to each other, as well as to metal, rubber, ceramic and glass.
Bonding Plastic Parts
Different compounds are available to bond specific plastics, including:
- Diallyl Phthalate (DAP, DAIP)
- Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP)
- Polycarbonate (PC)
- Polyphenylene Oxide (PPO)
- Polyurethane (PU)
- Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
Some of Our Most Popular Systems for Plastics Bonding
