Sika Corporation has announced the launch of SikaFast®-3300 and SikaFast®-3500 Structural methyl methacrylate (MMA) adhesives for transportation and industrial assembly applications.
These new SikaFast® lines are medium to high modulus structural adhesives, based on toughened-MMA technology. Products are characterized by high shear, peel, and impact strength, with some formulations affording >3000 psi (21 MPa) in lap shear at 72°F (22°)1 . In addition, these products retain a great deal of their properties over a wide temperature range.
The SikaFast®-3300 and SikaFast®-3500 products have excellent adhesion to numerous substrates, often with little or no surface pretreatment. Both lines offer fast setting /curing and long open time systems to fit most assembly processes.
“SikaFast® products are designed to substitute or complement welds, rivets and other mechanical fasteners and allow for a cleaner and aesthetic appearance.”
said Mark Daniels, Vice President, Industry Transportation and Appliance and Components. “Sika customers are able to reduce labor and material costs by reducing or eliminating surface prep in their manufacturing process.”
