Instant adhesive for specialist applications

Superglues have developed a long way from the general purpose domestic product we have all become familiar with.

The Intertronics adhere ADH9105, for example, is a precision engineered application specific adhesive for the high technology industries. The product has higher impact, humidity and temperature resistance with a more flexible bond than mainstream cyanoacrylates, making it ideal where gap filling and resistance to vibration, thermal shock or motion compliance are required. Typical; applications would be in mounting of electrical or electronic components, assembly of enclosures, cable boxes or in strain relief or simple wire tacking, such as in loudspeakers.

ADH9105 is a high viscosity black rubber toughened formulation that can tolerate temperatures up to 105°C continuously and 125°C intermittently. It is suitable for bonding metals, plastics and rubbers providing a bond of suitable flexibility, even capable of withstanding wave and reflow solder processes.

This tough peel and cleavage resistant one-part adhesive features room temperature cure in seconds – without an external energy source – and at 3500-5000 cps viscosity will not droop, run or sag before cure is completed. Dispensing is readily achieved in small quantities by standard squeeze bottles and in larger production quantities by pressure pot, manual, semi-automatic or fully automated equipment.
