Scigrip SG5000 methacrylate adhesive technology from IPS produces structural bonding for composites and metals and can bond polyester, vinyl ester, epoxy, and gel-coated composites as well as most metals and thermoplastics with little surface preparation or priming. The two-part adhesive is applied at a 1:1 adhesive/activator mix ratio and can be dispensed manually or with meter-mix equipment. Three series adhesives are available with working times of 3, 6, and 13 min. The adhesives will room-temperature cure with fixture times up to 6 min. Suitable for structural bonding applications on bus, truck, rail, military, and various product assembly applications requiring strength and reliability, substrates bonded with Scigrip SG5000 offer tensile strengths greater than 4500 psi (310 bar). Other benefits include improved chemical and corrosion resistance.
