Original Press Release:
Advanced Adhesives Permanently Bond Galvanized Metals
New Plexus Galvanized Bonder™ Adhesives from ITW Polymers Adhesives North America are specially formulated with no inhibition to zinc to bond hot-dip G60, G90, and most other galvanized metals. Ideal for bonding dissimilar substrates, these low-VOC 1:1 ratio methacrylate adhesives require no primers and little or no surface preparation, and cure rapidly at room temperature. Once cured, they exhibit superior strength; toughness; sheer, peel, and impact resistance; and fatigue endurance. Galvanized Bonder™ Adhesives eliminate the need for mechanical fasteners, simplifying and speeding industrial and transportation assembly.
These new adhesives expand the Plexus line to include structural adhesives that bond galvanized metals, as well as plastics, composites, steel, and aluminum. Plexus MA8110 Adhesive is designed primarily for bonding galvanized metals including G60 and G90, but can be used on other metals. Plexus MA8120 Galvanized Bonder Adhesives are formulated for bonding hot-dip and electrogalvanized steel to non-galvanized metals, engineered plastics, and composites.
