Merbenit IA45 is a SMP industrial adhesive with fast crosslinking properties that make it possible to bond parts in continuous working process. As a solvent free adhesive, it provides strong adhesion to a range of substrates without any odour.
The neutral polymerisation allows a connection without thermal or chemical pre-treatment of the assembly parts.
The product has a tensile strength of 2.8MPa, temperature resistance (°C/°F): -40 to +90°C (-40 to 194°F).
Merbenit IA45 Applications
- Suitable for metal, apparatus and machine construction, plastics technology, air-conditioning and ventilation systems, car body, commercial vehicle and container construction.
- Installation of sound absorbing elements, large area bonding, bonding of honeycomb panels, sandwich panel, etc.
- Used in automobile, rail, transport and general industry.
