Cyanoacrylates are single component, solvent free adhesives that cure readily upon exposure to moisture at room temperature. They do not require any mixing or heat and only need contact pressure to obtain durable high performance bonds. Special surface preparation methods need to be employed for hard to bond surfaces such as acetal, polyethylene, and polypropylene.
- Easy to use
- Rapid cure speed
- Fast fixturing time
- Excellent bond strength to rubbers, metals, most plastics and other substrates
- Optically clear
- Electrically insulative
Products are designed for assembly, repair, maintenance applications. High, medium, low viscosity compounds are available for use. They can be conveniently applied from a bottle or automatically dispensed for high volume manufacturing. Tensile lap shear strength properties for these adhesive are outstanding. Flexibilized systems exhibit high peel strength and are resistant to vibration/impact exposure. These versatile cyanoacrylate adhesives are ideal for outdoor weathering. Select products lessen the probability for blooming/frosting and have low odor. Systems were developed to satisfy multiple diverse industrial requirements mating flexible/rigid substrates.
Important Performance Properties of Cyanoacrylate Adhesives
We make specific grades of cyanoacrylate systems with outstanding performance properties. Specific formulations offer resistance to chemicals, aging and fatigue.
Most Popular Cyanoacrylate Systems
Higher viscosity (2,200-2,400 cps) and a slightly longer open time than low viscosity counterparts. High strength, rapid curing ethyl cyanoacrylate system. No heating or mixing needed. Good resistance to cleaning agents. Serviceable from -60°F to +250°F.
Low viscosity methyl cyanoacrylate with superior bonding properties especially to metals. Contact pressure usually sufficient for fixturing. Viscosity 75-95 cps. Shore D hardness 70. Fast curing. Serviceable from -60°F to +250°F.
