  • Specially developed cyanoacrylate contact adhesive for metals and metallic parts.
  • Medium viscosity.
  • Extended cure time which allows for some positioning of the parts immediately after you apply the glue.

VM 120 Super Glue for Metal is a special kind of contact adhesive which creates very high strength bonds with metal surfaces and parts. This cyanoacrylate adhesive is based on methyl ester which makes it different to the more common ethyl ester based super glues you will find. This is the source of its particularly good compatibility with metals and the high strength bonds it creates.

The sections below expand on the various features and capabilities of this professional quality super glue. 

Medium Viscosity Glue.

VM 120 Cyanoacrylate has a viscosity of 100 -130 mPa·s (at 20°C according to Brookfield). We classify this as a medium viscosity which means this glue isn't too runny but not really thick either. This allows it to be applied quite accurately to complex bond lines and slows the cure time a little.

Slower Cure.

VM 120 Super Glue has an extended cure time which allows you a little time to accurately position the parts you are joining after you’re put on the glue.

Like most glues, cure time for VM 120 will vary depending on materials and the conditions you are bonding in. Maximum cure time will be around 120 seconds (bonding PVC in a cool area with low humidity). Usually it will be closer to 20-40 seconds. 

Temperature & Environmental Resistance.

Once fully cured, Our VM 120 Glue will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures between -50°C and +120°C. It will also handle short-term spikes up to +150°C.

Squatting temperature is +170°C.

Where should I keep the container if I don’t use it all at once?

Cyanoacrylates are best kept refrigerated (especially in Australia). Make sure the lid is on tight (air tight in fact) and keep the pen in the fridge is our suggestion. That’ll extend the usable life significantly.

What should I do to prepare the surface before I glue it?

Definitely make sure the bonding surfaces and clean, free of grease and dry (our Surface Cleaner or Cleaner Spray S may be ideal for this). Super glue will stick to anything and even a little bit of loose dirt or dust can get in the way of the glue reaching the desired surfaces.

If at all practical, try and roughen smooth surfaces a little (a little bit of sand paper will often do the job) as this significantly increases the surface area available for the glue to stick to and therefore ensure stronger bonds.
