Araldite 2080-05 & 2080-15 : Low-Odor Non-Flamable Toughened Weathering & Aging Resistant Flexible 5 & 15-minute Acrylic (MMA) Adhesive

ARALDITE 2080-05 and 2080-15 are two formulas in teh same family. Non-flammable, two-part acrylic adhesive providing high strength and high flexibility with very low odor. They are a multipurpose adhesive with two open times to choose from: fast 5-minute, and medium 15-minute set.

Features

  • Low odor (90% less noxious odors during application and curing vs. traditional formulas)
  • Non-flammable (can be shipped free of hazmat and dangrous goods costs and restrictions)
  • Primer-free, Prep-Free (self-preps, self-primes for most surfaces, which exception of some low-energy plastics)
  • Fast-curing, just like traditional MMAs
  • High strength
  • High flexibility, elngation rate 50% before failure
  • Two set-time options: fast 5-minute, and medium 15-minute set times

Popular Uses and Surfaces

Wind Turbines, Automotive Panels and Trim, Bonding most metals (primer-free), Composites, Marine, Transportation, Oil/Gas/Petro/Chemical facilities and products, Outdoor Sign industry, Outdoor Channel Letter Bonding,

    Pretreatment

    The strength and durability of a bonded joint are dependent on proper pretreatment of the surfaces to be bonded; however the methacrylate adhesives can be used effectively with little surface preparation. Ideally joint surfaces should be cleaned with a good degreasing agent such as acetone, iso-propanol (for plastics) or other proprietary degreasing agents in order to remove all traces of oil, grease and dirt. Low grade alcohol, gasoline (petrol) or paint thinners should never be used. The strongest and most durable joints are obtained by either mechanically abrading or chemically etching (“pickling”) the degreased surfaces.

    Applying / Using the Adhesive

    This system is available in cartridges incorporating mixers and can be applied as ready to use adhesive with the aid of the tool recommended by Huntsman Advanced Materials.

    The resin/hardener mix may be applied manually or robotically to the pretreated and dry joint surfaces. Huntsman's technical support group can assist the user in the selection of a suitable application method as well as suggest a variety of reputable companies that manufacture and service adhesive dispensing equipment.

    A layer of adhesive 0.25 mm thick will normally impart the greatest lap shear strength to the joint. The joint components should be assembled and secured in a fixed position as soon as the adhesive has been applied.

    Temperature of application / use

    The recommended temperature application (putting it on) range is 50°F to 104°F.

    WARNING!

    the cure reaction can generate a high amount of heat; it is not recommended to mix large amounts of material at room temperature.

    Storage

    ARALDITE® 2080-05 Structural Adhesive should be stored in a dry place, in the original sealed containers, at temperatures between 2°C and 8°C (36°F and 46°F). Under these storage conditions, the product has a shelf life of 24 months (from date of manufacture). The product should not be exposed to direct sunlight. The product may be placed at room temperature before use, but the total time at room temperature should not exceed 9 months. Long term exposure above 25°C (77°F) will reduce the shelf life of the product.

    For additional information, consult the Technical Data Sheet (TDS) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
