What are Methacrylates?

A Methyl Methacrylate is basically the methyl ester of methacrylate acid. Its primary use is to manufacture a number of different plastics, but it is also the main ingredient in a range of adhesives products. Methacrylate adhesives are supplied in a two part system, that when mixed offers a controlled cure speed suited to the application. The cured adhesive can offer incredibly high tensile, shear and peel strength, whilst also resisting impact loads at both elevated and sub zero temperatures. This unique chemistry is unrivalled in its ultimate combination of convenience, ease of use and superior mechanical strengths for bonding engineered plastics, composites and metals.
