Fast Metal Minute Adhesive is a versatile grade of epoxy adhesive with a variety of uses. It is perfect for bonding metal, plastic, wood, stone, ceramics, glass and fibre reinforced materials. It is a high strength adhesive with a pasty consistency and the ability to bridge larger bonding gaps and fill holes.
Manufactured by Weicon in Germany, Fast Metal Minute Adhesive is produced from epoxy resin with steel fillers. It can be applied directly to vertical surfaces and cures with excellent residual elasticity to absorb some movement in the joined pieces once it’s cured.
This two-part epoxy is supplied in the special hand-operated double cartridge system. This ensures that you get the correct quantities of both part A & B without having to measure. It can be dispensed without the need for any special equipment.
True to its name, Fast Metal Minute Adhesive cures very quickly (especially by epoxy adhesive standards). Pot life is just 4 minutes and it will achieve handling strength (35%) after around 40 minutes. Mechanical strength (50%) will be reached after approximately 2 hours (depending on curing conditions). Final strength will take about 24 hours.
Once it has cured, Fast Metal Minute Adhesive will be grey in colour. It can be used to cover gaps up to 4mm. It also has good temperature resistance and withstands environments between -50°C to and +145°C.
This epoxy adhesive creates very high strength bonds and joins between a variety of materials. On sand-blasted average tensile shear strength was measured to be 20 N/mm², 19 N/mm² for aluminium and 11 N/mm² for roughened, rigid PVC sheet.
Do I Need A Mixing Nozzle?
No, Fast Metal Minute Adhesive is not designed for any kind of nozzle to be added to the pack. Instead, using only your hands, you push the end to force the mix out onto the surface you are bonding or the gap you are filling. You then mix it manually with a small piece of plastic or a paddle-pop stick.
