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!
