Maven Epoxy EA501 Gel is a 2-part High-Viscosity (no-flow, no-drip) Thick Gel Epoxy Adhesive with a very fast set time of 30 to 60 seconds (1 minute). When mixed in equal volumes of resin and hardener, it reacts to give a very-fast-setting rigid and tough bond.

It is excellent for applications needing a super-fast setting, and stay-in-place, no drip and no settling adhesive is needed.

This product is translucent clear, non shrinking and gives instant adhesion. EA501 Gel is recommended to bond various materials like metals, glass, wood, FRP, concrete, stone and ceramics. It has a set time (working life) of 1 minute, and handling strength can be achieved in less than 5 minutes. Give excellent bond strength on various substrates.

It is optimized for, and frequently used in, EOD and First-Responder applications.

Please Note: These cartridges are designed to work best with a 50ml or 400ml cartridge Dispenser, respectively. We advise you use a 50ml or 400ml Dispenser for all respective cartridges. If you do not have one, please check out our Dispensers, all are excellent products and have our 'it's good' seal of approval.

If you prefer not to use a Dispenser, we have some 50ml kits that include hand tools or caulking dispenser adapters, as pictured, that you can use for fast small jobs. But the 400ml cartridges really need to use a 400ml Dispenser, they're just too big to effectively use without the dispenser.

Directions of applications
Wipe off and degrease the surface to be bonded. Use the gloves to avoid skin contact. Dispense a desirable amount of adhesive using a dispensing dispenser. The nozzle sizes can be selected according to the desired bond thickness. Join the substrates with in 60 minutes and allow it to cure at room temperature. Do not disturb the parts during the curing process. Excess adhesive can be wiped off. (For optimum strengths, surface preparation for the metals like sandblast, etching will be needed).
