Crestabond M1-05 is a toughened, two component acrylic adhesive designed for bonding composites, thermoplastics and metals. This new generation of structural methacrylate adhesive meets the bonding requirements of most assembly operations, demonstrating excellent impact, peel, shear, compressive strength and fatigue resistance properties across all bonded parts. Crestabond M1-05 is a primerless adhesive, requiring only minimal surface cleaning of the substrates to be bonded and demonstrates high toughness in all assembled parts with a gap filling capability up to 15mm.
- Primerless metal application speeds assembly process
- Excellent retention of toughness
- Excellent fatigue and impact resistance
- High strength and modulus
- Replaces mechanical fasteners
- Non-sag Application on vertical surfaces
- Fast setting and curing Reduce labour
- Excellent adhesion to dissimilar substrates
- Excellent environmental resistance
- Ready-to-use two component adhesive
Please note a specialist Dispensing Gun is required for this product.
Can i use Crestabond onto an existing Composite surface? and what treatment do i need to do to the surface prior to bonding?
The surface to be bonded can affect the strength and durability of the bond joint. Appropriate treatment may be required to ensure that there are no traces of oil, grease or dirt through the use of a degreasing agent, for instance acetone or another degreasing agent on the joint surfaces.
The surface must also be clean, free of dust and also dry. This can be achieved by the use of proprietary strippable cloths such as peel-ply (without lubricant contaminates). The laminate should be fully cured prior to bonding and if the laminate surfaces are more than 3 days old, it is recommended that the surface must be cleaned with a suitable solvent or cleaner with a lint-free, clean cloth prior to bonding.
Surface preparation, such as mechanical abrasion, is likely to be needed on gel coat surfaces and moulded surface where release agents are likely to be present. When bonding epoxy laminates please test bond strength prior to application.
