Resulting Properties

Formulations based on Elvacite acrylic resins generally offer good adhesion to a wide range of substrates, including metals, concrete, glass and plastics. When adhesion to a certain substrate is found to be troublesome, Lucite can provide formulation guidance that may help overcome most common adhesion problems. Untreated polyolefin substrates such as polypropylene, polyethylene and thermoplastic polyolefin alloys are known to be particularly troublesome for achieving acceptable adhesion. Elvacite® 4036 has shown improved adhesion to these difficult substrates. It has also been found that these formulations may help in providing improved adhesion to other ‘difficult’ substrates such as aluminum and galvanized steel.Source: Lucite International, Elvacite Acrylic Resins
