Huntsman Advanced Materials (formerly Vantico, Los Angeles, Calif., U.S.A.) introduces a new line of surface-activated Araldyte Agomet methacrylate adhesives, a range of six adhesives and four hardeners designed to increase bonding options while maintaining fast cure and durable joints between metals, thermoplastics and/or composites. The surface-activation feature allows users to apply hardener/lacquer to a substrate up to 30 days before resin is added to bond an assembly (the methacrylates also may be hand- or meter-mixed). The adhesives have working times from 1 to 20 minutes (depending on the combination of adhesive and hardener). Handling time ranges from 2 to 35 minutes, and materials may be applied in thicknesses ranging from 0.02 to 0.31 inches. Cured material exhibits lap shear strength of 3,000 to 4,000 psi and tensile strength as high as 4,785 psi. Select 224
