Activator Cure Structural Adhesive

Dymax 846-GEL is a activator-curable adhesive that combines strength with environmental compliance. The 846-GEL structural bonding adhesive is ideal for applications where dissimilar substrates are to be joined and maximum tensile shear strength is required. The 846-GEL cures upon contact with Dymax solvent-free activators between closely mating surfaces, or upon application of heat. No cure until assembly allows time for precise alignment of parts.

Dymax materials are solvent free and cure upon exposure to light. Their ability to cure in seconds results in lower processing costs. When cured with Dymax UV light curing spot lamps, focused beam lamps, flood lamps, or conveyor systems they deliver optimum speed and performance for maximum efficiency. Dymax lamps offer the optimum balance of UV and visible light for the fastest, deepest cures. This product is in full compliance with the RoHS Directives 2002/95/EC and 2003/11EC.
