Loctite launches 'radically' improved instant adhesive
01 April 2010
Loctite 3090 is a new two-part cyanoacrylate that significantly increases the versatility of instant adhesives. Alongside all the traditional benefits – an initial bond within seconds, clear bondline, high strength and easy dispensing – this new product allows any exposed adhesive remaining outside of the joint to harden within two to four minutes. This additional advantage removes the need for a post-assembly activator.
Not only that, larger gap sizes can be readily accommodated. The new adhesive will bond together close fitting parts in 20 seconds – and even where the gap is 3mm, bonding is achieved in less than 90 seconds. Furthermore, the product can be used where a more significant gap – up to 5mm - is involved.
Loctite 3090, which can be used on a variety of substrates, including plastic, rubber, wood, stone, leather, fabric or metal, is capable of withstanding a force of some 20N/mm2. Application is very easy – with the adhesive available in a pack containing a dual syringe with seven mixer nozzles. These syringes not only ensure a clean application, but also that the correct ratio of each component is always applied. Furthermore, its gel viscosity means the adhesive can be used for vertical or overhead application.
The temperature range of this new two part CA is also versatile – it can be used between minus 20°C to plus 80°C.
