Two-part adhesive offers outstanding clarity

Diversified technology company 3M, has launched an advanced two-part adhesive which offers all the established benefits of strength and ease of use alongside astounding clarity.

Scotch-Weld EPX Acrylic Adhesive DP804 offers superior adhesion to plastic and glass surfaces. However, it will also bond most metals and is suitable for any application where a coloured adhesive may detract from overall product appearance. Imran Idrees, Marketing Executive at 3M's Industrial Adhesives & Tapes Division, explained: "DP804 draws on 3M's extensive experience in industrial adhesives to introduce a product which is strong, durable and versatile due to its clarity. This makes it ideal for commercial signage and point of sale, but in fact applications can be found almost anywhere."

Offering long-lasting clarity and strength, DP804 is fast-acting with bonded surfaces typically able to cope with manual handling in as little as four minutes. It has been formulated to a viscosity which allows for simple, hassle-free workability. It offers excellent UV resistance with very good ageing properties in warm and humid environments.

The product works without damaging the surface of plastic, meaning screen printing is not affected, while any excess can be removed without leaving permanent blemishes, creating a super-clear finish every time.
