Extra: DP Scotch-Weld ™
to this category adhesives having the most different functions,
including the bonding of internal cores (honeycomb) or the replacement
of mechanical fasteners made with nut / bolt system, rivets or welding
(structural adhesives). The joint achieved with structural adhesives
may have higher performances than the mechanical one as it is created
by chemical fusion of the two materials, upon curing of the adhesives.
It is induced by mixing in proportions set of two parts which in the
retention phase are kept separate, allowing a wide choice in the
workability times of the bi-component adhesives. There are adhesives
with rigid, flexible or reinforced formulation, different depending on
the demands of structural joints: capacity to absorb vibrations,
resistance to thermal variations, to the load or to impact shock.
