Merbenit IA45 is a contact SMP adhesive for application in very thin lines on one or both sides and builds up strength very quickly.

The Merbenit SMP base provides very good adhesion even on difficult plastics.   

Free from solvents, isocyanates & silicone, low odour SMP Merbenit IA45 offers high strength flexible ‘contact’ adhesion to a range of substrates.

Available in

  • 750 ml tins
  • 600 ml sausages
  • 16 kg drums
