Low-odor methyl acrylate adhesive can be used for range of applications
Penloc GTN is an easy- to-process, methyl acrylate based, low-odor adhesive that can be used in a wide variety of applications.
Techsil (Bidford-on-Avon, UK) introduced April 5 a new two-component high-performance structural adhesive from Panacol (Steinbach, Germany). Penloc GTN is an easy-to-process, methyl acrylate based, low-odor adhesive that can be used in a wide variety of applications.
Penloc GTN reportedly adheres especially well to brass, ceramics, steel, aluminium, PVC and similar materials. The performance adhesive boasts a high power transmission capability and thermal stability. It is flexible yet offers superior adhesion. Compared to other methyl acrylate adhesives, it has the advantages of a low-odor formation and a long processing time of 10-15 minutes.
To allow effective monitoring of blending quality, the two components of Penloc GTN have different colours that, applied thinly, change to a grey, almost colourless surface as the blend cures. Penloc GTN can be conveniently dispensed from a handy 50 ml double cartridge or from drums connected to dispensing apparatus.
