Description

Veck Fasteners adhesive RA300 is a two part A&B component system, which is fast setting when mixed via a static mix nozzle at room temperatures. Because it is a high viscosity non-sag material, the mixed material is ideal for all types of gap filling requirements on steel, aluminium, polycarbonates and general plastics.

It is very good on vertical surface bonds because, being a methacrylate, it exhibits excellent structural strength even without priming the surfaces. Because of its macro structure the bonds formed show excellent durability high peel strength even in big gaps and excellent solvent and environmental resistance, resisting fuels, lubricants cleaning chemicals and fluids.

Typical Uses

Structural joining of metals, plastics, composite bonding and on ceramics where high impact strengths are needed.

RA300 is very versatile and can bond a wide variety of substrates without the need for surface primers or conditioners. Typical examples shown below:

  • Bonding metal fasteners to moulded composite parts
  • Bonding aluminium and stainless steel lettering in the sign manufacturing industry.
  • Bonding automotive carbon fibre body panels
  • Bonding GRP in the marine industry
  • Bonding dissimilar metals for trailer fabrication
