Perigee’s Industrial Grade Adhesives
Posted by Marketing Team on
If you are the type to take on home projects or even if you work in the science industry, you might know the importance of choosing the right materials required before even starting the project. Half your work is already done if you have all the components assembled before in hand. And choosing the right adhesive for the job is an essential part of the material-choosing process and can be the deciding factor in the success of your project. Mentioned below are 3 different kinds of adhesives that you should look at for your projects.
When it comes to medical device-grade formula adhesive, one of your best options is the Permabond 2011 bonding agent. This fast-setting cyanoacrylate provides great results when it comes to vertical and porous substrates. Permabond 2011 is also a thixotropic substance which means that it hardens or becomes thick when it is under static conditions and softens to flow easily when it is agitated. Permabond 2011 works exceptionally well for various metals, different types of plastic, elastomers, ceramics, and even wood. This type of cyanoacrylate adhesive is a single-component adhesive that forms a very thin layer between two objects, ensuring that it gets into all the small gaps to give excellent adhesion.
Over the years, Permabond has become especially popular with high-speed production lines. Not only is Permabond easy to dispense, but it is also incredibly heat resistant.
Loctite EA 0151
Loctite 0151, on the other hand, is a much slower bonding epoxy adhesive that usually comes in a 3.3-ounce kit, 50-milliliter cartridges, or 1-quart kits. It is a general-purpose adhesive that has a 50-minute work life. Loctite 0151, made by the brand Hysol, comes in two parts, the resin, and the hardener, and it has a cure time of about 24 hours. You can use Loctite for pretty much any purpose and with materials made out of glass, metal, and plastic, but it is important to note that this type of resin-based adhesive is especially effective on fiber optic components.
Loctite EA 1C Epoxy
The Loctite 1C Epoxy kit is also a resin-based adhesive that is highly versatile and can be used for bonding various different kinds of materials. It slightly differs from Loctite 0151 in the sense that is has a shorter work life of 25 minutes. This two-part adhesive also needs a full 24 hours to cure, but the process can be quickened if heat is applied to the mixture of resin and hardener. This epoxy kit works with most metals, plastics, and different kinds of wood. It can even withstand some of the harshest environmental conditions and has a maximum operating temperature of +250-degree Fahrenheit. The kit itself includes all the accessories that you might need to use it, such as reusable plastic sheets and two mixing sticks.
