3M Scotch-Weld Epoxy Adhesive, DP460NS, Off-White, 1.69 fl. oz. (50mL)
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Epoxy Adhesive DP460NS exhibits excellent shear and peel strength along with good impact durability. It bonds to many surfaces, such as ceramics, metals, glass, wood, and some plastics. When it comes to preparation and application, 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Epoxy Adhesive DP460NS is straightforward and easy to use. Simply mix the components with a 2:1 by volume mix ratio and then apply according to the instructions to achieve a strong, long-lasting bond. The components are easy to mix and the 60-minute work life means users have ample time to reposition to the bonding surfaces before a durable, long-lasting bond is achieved. For easier mixing and application, use 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ EP Plus II applicators with a 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Duo-Pak Cartridge. Epoxy adhesives are part of the class of adhesives called "structural adhesives," which include polyurethane, acrylic, cyanoacrylate and others. Epoxies are formulated as liquid reactive polymers that undergo a chemical reaction when mixed and then cure to form a solid plastic material. Once the two parts are mixed in their specified ratio, they begin the curing process and offer a limited working time where the adhesive can be applied and the two surfaces positioned as needed. This work life lasts anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. These structural adhesives provide high shear and peel strengths, depending on the formula, and better heat and chemical resistance than other common adhesives. In general, epoxy adhesives have the highest overall strength and offer the best performance and most resistance to high temperatures, solvents, and outdoor weathering.
