Structural Adhesives vs Mechanical Fasteners

Structural Adhesives vs Mechanical Fasteners

Structural Adhesives vs Mechanical Fasteners Structural adhesives are a powerful alternative to traditional mechanical fasteners. They offer superior strength, cost-effectiveness, and ease of use in manufacturing processes. Unlike mechanical fasteners, which only distribute holding power at the point of attachment, structural adhesives distribute holding power along the entire bond line, resulting in a stronger bond. …

Moisture-Cure Urethanes

Moisture-Cure Urethanes

How do Moisture-Cure Urethanes Work? Moisture-cure urethanes are single-part structural polyurethane reactive adhesives that require moisture to cure. They are known as “reactive” adhesives because they need a catalyst, in this case exposure to moisture, to begin the chemical reaction of curing. Dispensing equipment needs to be completely sealed so that no moisture can get …
