High Performance Adhesives Now Available in Dual Syringes - No Gun Needed!
Permabond has launched a number of its popular, high-performance two-component adhesives in dual syringes - this means users can easily dispense the adhesive without the need of a dispensing gun. Products can be mixed via static mixing nozzle, so no weighing or manual mixing is required, keeping the application process simple, quick and clean.
Permabond ET5003 – Newly launched metal-repair compound with a rapid cure at room temperature. This material has a metallic appearance and solid – allowing sanding and painting if required. It is suitable for fixing or rebuilding damaged metal parts such as splines, gears, keyways, worn bearings or for the structural bonding of metal components. It forms high strength bonds and has great resistance to harsh environmental conditions.
Permabond ET500 – This epoxy product has been popular amongst engineers for many years. It has a 3-5 min gel time and a clear / colourless appearance. It is ideal for general purpose applications, bonding a wide variety of materials including metals, plastics, wood, ceramics, composites and many more substrates.
Permabond TA4204 – This has a very fast cure and rapid strength development. It is supplied with a mixing nozzle but can also be used without*. It cures to give a clear, colourless, aesthetically pleasing finish. This makes it ideal for transparent plastics such as acrylic and polycarbonate (or tradename materials such as Plexiglas, Perspex etc). It also forms a high strength structural bond with metal and composite material, the product has rubber toughening so great resistance to impact and vibration stresses.
*Bead on bead – suitable where components parts are in close contact i.e. no gap.
Permabond TA4207 – This product is every engineer’s dream, it tolerates unprepared surfaces such as oily steel and oxide layers on metals (such as aluminium), meaning cleaning and abrading processes needn’t be so laborious. This breakthrough in adhesive technology helps save time on production lines and reduces the need for solvent cleaners in the workplace. TA4207 can be used to bond nearly everything apart from low surface energy plastics.
Permabond TA4611 is for low surface energy plastics but is quite capable of bonding various other materials as well, so it is a good choice if you don’t know the type of plastic you’re bonding or have other unknown materials requiring bonding. There is no need to carry out any flame, corona or plasma treatment (which can be quite costly), and with no need to use any etching solution – a big benefit for CoSHH.
Permabond TA4631 is a no-odour version of TA4611 which is ideal for workplaces where ventilation is difficult or where there is concern over residual odour on a bonded assembly – for example automotive interior applications.
