Partite Methacrylate Structural Adhesives

Partite Methacrylate Structural Adhesives

What is a MMA (methyl methacrylate)?

It is a two-component structural bonding adhesive for adhering metals, plastics, and composites. They are typically formulated in 1:1 or 10:1 ratios. The adhesive is most commonly dispensed by handheld manual, pneumatic, or rechargeable battery guns through a static mixing nozzle. Other methods are automatic or semi-automatic meter-mix-dispensing solutions.

What materials can be bonded with methacrylate?

  • Metal surfaces – aluminum, stainless steel, plated steel, galvanized metal, cold rolled steel, and magnets
  • Plastics and composites – plexiglass, carbon fiber, PVC, fiberglass, PBT, PPO, ABS, HDPE, LDPE, Teflon, polypropylene, FRT, polyurethane, RIM, polyesters, acrylics, and styrene
  • Other materials – solid surface, granite, marble, engineered stone, quartz, wood, epoxy, gelcoats, and nylon

What are some advantages vs. using epoxy?

  • No surface cleaning required
  • Increased “green” strength during initial cure
  • Multiple packaged sizes (50ml, 200ml, 380ml, 400ml, 490ml, and 18 kg)
  • Broad range of working/fixturing time options
  • Great flexibility during shock, thermal expansion, and contraction
  • Better gap fill
  • Better peel strength and less prone to cracking
  • Larger variety of substrates can be bonded with the same product
  • Better resistance to chemicals or environment
  • Cures at room temperature; no heat necessary to create bond

Are any of these adhesives UL certified or UV stable?

Yes. Several Partite formulations are UL certified and/or UV stable!

Hot Melt Spray Applications

Spray grade hot melt adhesives are perfect for temperature-sensitive materials, such as plastic foams and films. Spraying allows for a wider area of adhesion, for improved bond strength on weaker substrates when compared with bead dispensing. These systems are solvent-free and non-toxic, so there are none of the environmental problems often associated with spray guns. We proudly distribute the market leader Power Adhesives for these products!

Protecting your Investment

Whether it is a $8 bottle of super glue or $75,000 labeling system, we recommend reading the below suggestions for extending the life of your product or asset!

Surge Protector

No matter where you work, bad weather, “brownouts” or power surges are inevitable.  Most consider a power strip sufficient, but in reality ALL equipment should be plugged into a surge protector.  This protects the main electrical components which are typically expensive to replace.

Adhesives or Labels

For temperature and moisture sensitive products consider the following:

  • Store unopened super glue bottles in a in freezer.  By slowing down the molecules, this will significantly increase shelf life.
  • Keep unopened MMA’s (methacrylates) cartridges in a refrigerator.  This will help extend their short shelf life.
  • Keep blank polypropylene and polyester label rolls in an office temperature controlled environment.  This will eliminate possible adhesive oozing that can release the labels from the liner.

Clean Air for Pneumatic Equipment

Water in air lines is unfortunately also very common!  It can easily be removed by using an aftermarket air purification or inline water separator system.

Maintenance or Repair

Priddy Sales offers several options for preventative maintenance or repair.  These services can be provided onsite or at our facility.  Call 800-275-0828 to discuss the best option with one of our trained technicians!
