The new Plexus Galvanized Bonder Adhesives from ITW Polymers Adhesives North America (Danvers, MA) are specially formulated with no inhibition to zinc to bond hot-dip G60, G90, and most other galvanized metals. Ideal for bonding dissimilar substrates, these low-VOC 1:1 ratio methacrylate adhesives require no primers and little or no surface preparation, and cure rapidly at room temperature. Benefits include:
- Once cured, they exhibit superior strength; toughness; sheer, peel and impact resistance; and fatigue endurance.
- No need for mechanical fasteners, simplifying and speeding industrial and transportation assembly.
The Plexus MA8110 Adhesive are designed primarily for bonding galvanized metals including G60 and G90, but can be used on other metals. Plexus MA8120 Galvanized Bonder Adhesives are formulated for bonding hot-dip and electrogalvanized steel to non-galvanized metals, engineered plastics, and composites.
