- Thick, Pasty Acrylic Glue that can be applied to vertical or horizontal surfaces.
- Cures fast to form very high strength bonds.
- Very easy to use; apply the glue to one side, activator to the other and join.
- Works with many types of materials including metal, most rigid plastics and ferrites.
RK-1300 Two-Part, No-Mix, High Strength Acrylic Glue is a high strength construction adhesive based on methyl methacrylate (MMA). It has a party consistency and is used to create very high strength bonds that have high impact, peel and shear strength.
RK-1300 is particularly well suited for joining larger surface areas. It works very well with metal (including both passive and active styles) and is also compatible with many types of rigid plastics (such as acrylic, polycarbonate and fibreglass) as well as ceramics and ferrites.
This industrial grade acrylic glue is very easy to use (the video below shows this). Though it is a two-part adhesive, there’s no mixing or measuring involved. For close fitting joins (i.e. those with a bonding gap of 0.4mm or below), simply apply the pasty glue to one side and spread. Once done, apply the activator to the other and join the two parts (for larger bonding gaps up to 0.8mm, apply the activator to both sides).
Once the two bonding surfaces have been joined, the adhesive will set fast. At a room temperature of 20°C, RK-1300 Acrylic Glue achieves 35% cure in just 5 minutes and hits 50% of its final strength after 9 minutes. It will be fully cured within 24 hours.
One additional benefit of the adhesive + activator “No Mix” process used with this glue is time. Parts coated with just the adhesive can be stored for up to 30 days (at room temperature) without loosing effectiveness. This could be a real benefit for anyone with multiple parts to bond as they can prep multiple items with just the adhesive before proceeding to apply the activator and join sequentially. The activator will evaporate around 5 minutes (20°C) after being applied so it is best to join the parts quite quickly after applying this.
Manufactured in Germany by Weicon, this high strength acrylic glue is able to withstand permanent exposure to temperatures up to 130°C (and as low as -50°C) once fully cured. It will also tolerate short-term spikes to +180°C. It has a beige colour after it is cured.

General Material Compatability of RK-1300 Acrylic Glue
- Metals (such as coated metal, steel, aluminium, copper, zinc alloys and ferrites)
- Plastics* (such as ABS, polystyrene, hard PVC, polycarbonate, Polyphenylene oxide and polyester moulding compounds)
- Fibre Composite Materials (including GRP, CRP and fibreglass)
- Wood and cellulose materials (e.g. MDF)
- Glass, Ceramics and Stone
Please note Polyamide, PTFE and polyolefin may only be bonded after special treatment of the surface (e.g. low-pressure plasma, corona, flame impingement).
