- Completely transparent epoxy adhesive that can be used to bond metal, ceramics, stone, wood, glass, plastic and fibre reinforced materials.
- Thick, pasty (viscous) epoxy that is also self-levelling.
- Fast curing adhesive with a very short pot life.
Applications for Epoxy Minute Adhesive
- High strength bonding of metal sheets
- Mounting and securing glass panels
- Bonding of ceramic components fixtures
- Securing stone, masonry and brick
- Bonding Wooden panelling, sheet and parts
- High strength plastic bonding
- Insulating and securing electrical connections
- Securing casings for electrical devices
- Bonding plastic sheet and parts
- Securing and fixing fibreglass sheet and panel
- Bonding epoxy glass and polyester glass sheets and parts
- Various types of construction, repair and assembly work in the marine, engineering, DIY, hobby, construction and plant maintenance sectors. Especially useful for smaller jobs where the use of a manual-mix, or dispensing gun based epoxy adhesive (such as our Easy-Mix Epoxies) would be inefficient.
Epoxy Minute Adhesive is a strong, versatile epoxy adhesive able to be used on a variety of materials. It effectively bonds metal, plastic and fibre reinforced materials like fibreglass or epoxy glass sheet. It also adhesive very well to ceramics, glass and wood and even more porous surfaces like stone, bricks and masonry.
This grade of high quality epoxy adhesive is fast curing. It will achieve handling strength after about 35 minutes and reach 50% of final strength after 1 hour. From there, curing will continue until it reaches final strength after about 24 hours. Like all epoxy adhesives, these times will differ a little depending on cure conditions (measured at 20°C, warmer will equate to faster cure times).
Once Epoxy Minute Adhesive has been dispensed and the two parts are mixed, pot life begins. This will be very short and is expected to be around 3-4 minutes (again, depending on bonding conditions).
Epoxy Minute Adhesive is a transparent epoxy that is based on unfilled epoxy resin. It is quite viscid (thick) in nature which makes it ideal for applying to vertical surfaces. It is also self-levelling which can be useful for filling work.
Joins created with Epoxy Minute Adhesive will exhibit very good shear strength, shock resistance and impact strength. Being an unfilled epoxy adhesive, Epoxy Minute also exhibits good dielectric properties (1 kV/mm dielectric strength) which makes it ideal for repairs to electrical enclosures and devices. Once it is cured, it will withstand temperatures between -50°C and +80°C.
Epoxy Minute Adhesive is manufactured by Weicon in Germany and is a very high quality type of epoxy. The double cartridge packs totally eliminate the need to measure out correct portions of part A and B and require no special, additional equipment to use (hand strength is fine, no need for a dispensing gun).
Does it come with a mixing nozzle?
No. You don’t need to use a mixing nozzle as the two parts can be mixed manually on the bonding surface once they are dispensed. Epoxy Minute Adhesive is compatible with Weicon Quadro Mixing Nozzles though if you would like to use one. These are available separately.
Should I store this in the fridge?
Definitely not. Epoxy Adhesives have a natural tendency to crystallise at temperatures below +5°C. This tendency is only made more likely to occur by wide variations in temperatures (e.g. taking in and out of cold storage).
If the epoxy crystallises it has a negative effect on working qualities and curing. It can be reversed by heating the adhesive to a maximum of 50°C (though no naked flame should be used) but this is an extra step it would be better to avoid if possible. Weicon Epoxy Adhesive are specially formulated (through careful selection of the base bisphenol A and F resins) to try and avoid this happening but it can’t be eliminated.
The best way to store Epoxy Minute Adhesive is to keep the unopened container out of direct sunlight and in a room with a consistent temperature of around 20°C.
