New from, Permabond is a handy range of dual syringes, making a variety of high-performance engineering adhesives available in this simple-to-use, no-fuss packaging. Just affix the nozzle, press the plunger and away you go.
Permabond ET5003 – A brand-new metal-repair compound with a rapid cure at room temperature. This material has a metallic appearance and cures to form a robust solid which can be sanded or painted. It is said to be ideal for fixing or rebuilding damaged metal parts such as keyways, splines, gears, worn bearings or for the structural bonding of metal components. It is high-strength, has great environmental resistance and is so easy and quick to use.
Permabond ET500 – A favourite staple in the engineers’ toolbox, 3-5 min gel, clear epoxy adhesive. Permabond says this is ideal for general purpose applications, bonding a wide variety of materials including metals, plastics, composites, wood, ceramics and many more substrates.
Permabond TA4204 – This has an ultra-rapid cure and will fixture in less than a couple of minutes. It can be used with or without a mixing nozzle and gives an ultra-clear, aesthetically pleasing finish. This suits it for clear plastics such as acrylic and polycarbonate (or tradename materials such as Plexiglas, Perspex, etc). It also forms a high strength structural bond with metal and composite material.
Permabond TA4207 – This product will tolerate oily surfaces and is able to ‘eat’ through oxide layers and form a high-performance structural bond with the parent metal underneath. Permabond says this “breakthrough” in adhesive technology helps save time on production lines and reduces the need for solvent cleaners in the workplace. TA4207 can also be used to bond almost all surfaces apart from low surface energy plastics.
Permabond TA4611 – This is for low surface energy plastics and Permabond says it will bond virtually anything, suiting it for applications where you don’t know the type of plastic you’re bonding or indeed any type of material. This product offers huge benefits to customers, as previously non-stick plastics can now be bonded quickly and easily, without the need to carry out any flame, corona or plasma treatment.
Permabond TA4631 – This product is a no-odour formulation which makes it ideal for workplaces where ventilation is difficult or where there is concern over residual odour on a bonded assembly, for example automotive interior applications.
