Activators for Industrial/Structural Adhesive Bonding Applications


Activators for Structural Bonding Applications

Cure Acrylate Adhesives in Areas Not Able to See Light or Heat

Adhesive activators increase the cure speed and improve adhesion of industrial adhesive bonding applications. The products are designed to enable curing of 600 series and 800 series acrylate adhesives in areas not able to see light or heat. Dymax metal bonding adhesives develop bond strengths up to 3,500 psi in 10 to 30 seconds between opaque surfaces when an adhesive activator is pre-applied to metal substrates. Many products also bond well to various engineering plastics and glass surfaces.

  • Increase strength of bonded substrates
  • Improve adhesion
  • Fixture in seconds

Structural adhesives form durable bonds with an adhesive activator between close-fitting parts for fast metal joining, ferrite bonding, magnet bonding, and motor assembly. Applications include tacking, bonding speaker cones, magnet bonding, motor assembly, furniture assembly, appliance manufacturing, plastic assembly, and general bonding to metal and ceramics.

Adhesive Activators

Cure with Dymax Multi-Cure® adhesives, suitable for gaps <0.001 to 0.020″ (preferred gap 0-0.002″); Used with Dymax 600 and 800 series structural bonding adhesives and thermal interface materials for increasing bond strength to metals, plated surfaces, ceramic, and glass substrates

Strong structural bonds; Fixtures in seconds; No solvent flash-off time; No VOCs and ODCs

Used with Dymax 600 and 800 series structural bonding adhesives for fast structural bonding; High strength bonds form to metal, painted/coated metal, plated and surface treated metal, ferrite, ceramic, glass, wood, and thermoset plastic substrates

ODC-free; Excellent degreasing and wetting properties; Elimination of heat curing and other delays in curing; Broad tolerance of adhesive-to-activator ratios
