Advance Performance Series™ — Cyanoacrylates

Advance Performance SeriesThe Advance Performance Series™ offers you the most comprehensive range of cyanoacrylate adhesives available to tackle the rigorous demands of today’s assembly requirements. These products will bond more materials better than other one-part systems. Through Advanced Adhesive Technology, these products have been engineered to achieve structural bonds with excellent results on difficult to bond substrates. These products have been formulated to bond a wide range of similar and dissimilar materials: plastics, metals, elastomers, wood, and porous surfaces, to name a few. This unique family of products possesses exceptional bond strength, with excellent aging and weathering characteristics.

No other adhesives offer a better combination of convenience, ease of use, dependability, and strength. When compared to other products on the market today, you will find faster cure times and superior bond strength. Whether you’re bonding rubber, plastic, metal, wood, or other surfaces, the Advance Performance Series™ will give you the ultimate in performance.

Advance Performance Series

High Performance, Instant Adhesives, Cyanoacrylates for Bonding

The Advance Performance Series™ of Instant Adhesives represents the widest selection of application specific cyanoacrylate adhesives in the market today. These products are manufactured using state of the art technology. They contain no solvents and are nonflammable, can be applied directly from the bottle, and are easily automated through dispensing systems. Convenient, ready to use, and single component are some of the reasons why engineers and production personnel are choosing the Advance Performance Series™ for their assembly applications.

PACKAGING: All of the ADVANCE PERFORMANCE SERIES products are available in 1 ounce, 2 ounces, 1 pound, and 4.4 pound containers. Special packaging is available: 2 gram pipettes, aluminum tubes, 3 gram bottles, 1/4 ounce bottles, brush on bottles, pin and collar bottles, cartridges, 20 kilo containers and 55 gallon drums.
STORAGE: For maximum shelf life the products should be stored at or below 72° F, in a cool area, away from heat, and out of direct sunlight. Once a bottle is opened do not refrigerate the container. Condensation may develop and this will effect shelf life. For all spout top bottles (1/2 ounce, 1 ounce, 2 ounces), after each use lightly squeeze the bottle to purge any adhesive that may have remained in the tip. A small amount of adhesive may come out. Wipe the tip, place the overcap on the tip, and tip will remain clog free for many uses. To prevent contamination of unused adhesive, do not fill any used material into a new container.
SURFACE PREPARATION: To guarantee the maximum performance characteristics of the adhesive, parts should be clean and free of all contamination. This includes mold release agents, grease, oil, dirt, oxidation, etc.
ADHESIVE APPLICATION: In using cyanoacrylate adhesives, only a minimum amount of material is needed to achieve the optimum performance. These products are designed to cure between two surfaces in a thin film. A free falling drop will typically spread to give one square inch of coverage. The adhesive only needs to be applied to one surface. Then mate the parts together with firm pressure until the adhesive cures to fixture strength. This will happen in most cases within 30 seconds. In applications that require bridge bonding, creating a fillet, and/or the adhesive is exposed, Quick Tac Accelerators can be used to cure the adhesive that is not between two surfaces. Quick Tac Accelerators can also be used to achieve faster cure speeds and fixture times of any of the ADVANCE PERFORMANCE SERIES products.
PERFORMANCE PROPERTIES: Each assembly application has specific criteria that influence the performance properties of the adhesive. This criteria must be evaluated on the basis of each individual application. Some of the criteria that effect adhesive performance are temperature, environmental conditions, the type of stress on the bondline, surface conditions of the parts, the total bond area, moisture, etc. 
APPLICATION HELPERS: Poly Prep Primers enhance the bonding characteristics of difficult to bond surfaces. These surfaces include polyolefins (polyethylene, polypropylene), teflon, delrin, low energy surfaces, etc. Poly Prep Primer can be applied by brushing, spraying, or dipping. It is single component material that drys rapidly at room temperature.
