NovaWeld Flex 3HT & 6HT are two-part structural methacrylate adhesives formulated for applications intended for the powder coating process. Sharing common chemistry, they differ only in the functional cure-speed, allowing diversity of applications.
Both grades offer a high functional tensile shear strength after the initial cure, that further increases following an additional heat cure process (30 min@180ºC / 20 min@200ºC). This unique chemistry allows these grades to not only maintain a high functional strength through the powder coating process, but actually improve in all aspects of functional strength performance.
NovaWeld Flex 3HT & 6HT are very versatile, and can bond a wide variety of substrates without the need for surface primers or conditioners. Typical examples shown below:
