Cyanoacrylate (Instant) Adhesive targets automotive industry.

Press Release Summary:

Formulated to dispense cleanly from automated valves, Aron Alpha 203TX-1Y luminescent-infused thixotropic gel cyanoacrylate bonds within 10 sec (neoprene to steel) and fluoresces bright neon green under black light. Latter allows vision system to detect and verify adhesive was applied to proper location on automotive part. Properties include viscosity of 1,500 cps, tensile strength of 360 psi (material failure), and shear strength of 70 psi (material failure).

Original Press Release:

Error-Proof Your Adhesive Bonding Process


INDUSTRY: Automotive

APPLICATION: Automotive Part


Tier I Automotive Supplier needed to guarantee the placement of cyanoacrylate (instant) adhesive on a painted metal part prior to mating to rubber component in their high-speed assembly process to improve quality, throughput and reduce operating cost by minimizing down-time.

The current process utilized a clear (transparent) cyanoacrylate adhesive which was a challenge to detect under natural light by the operator since it was dispensed onto a black painted part surface. The process involved mis-operations (no adhesive) requiring inefficient, labor intensive and subjective manual inspections.


Toagosei America Technical Services Team developed a luminescent infused thixotropic gel cyanoacrylate designed to dispense cleanly from automated valves, bond quickly with high strength yielding material failure while allowing for a vision system to detect and verify that adhesive was applied to proper location on automotive part.

Assembly process challenges are welcomed by our Sales, Marketing and Technical Services Teams.
