Adhesives

By definition, an adhesive is a non-metallic material which, via adhesion (surface adhesion) and cohesion (internal strength), creates a bond between two substrates. The bonding process is becoming increasingly important in all branches of industry every year. In addition to its main purpose, power transmission, each adhesive also has a certain sealing effect and vice versa.

Anaerobic adhesives

Anaerobic adhesives are used in applications with self-supporting or closely bonded metallic components such as ball bearing locks, screw locks, flange seals, surface seals and in sealing pipelines. Depending on the application requirements, adhesives are available for removable or permanent connections.

Cyanoacrylates

Cyanoacrylate adhesives offer a variety of positive properties, such as the bonding of different and difficult to bond materials, rapid curing with very high adhesive strength and a range of different viscosities. Cyanoacrylate adhesives thus offer versatile possibilities for the most demanding applications.

Epoxy resin adhesives (EP)

The most important group of reaction adhesives are epoxy resin adhesives. They harden with the addition of a hardener component without splitting off a low-molecular product and are addition-curing.
