SIGN MAKERS ADHESIVES AND SEALANTS
INDASOL 912LX: a 2-component high bond strength structural adhesive ideal for bonding metals, plastics, composites, GRP and wood and many other surfaces. It is particularly good on delicate surfaces such as ACM and thin acrylic due to it not creating any heat when curing = no read through. Works well with SnapFix Locators.
INDASOL 910LX: a 2-component high bond strength structural adhesive ideal for bonding metals, plastics, composites, GRP and wood and many other surfaces. It is particularly good on delicate surfaces such as ACM and thin acrylic due to it not creating any heat when curing = no read through. Available in Black – works well with SimpleFix Locators.
INDASOL 900: the industry standard for fast setting, high load bearing 2 component adhesive. Developed to replace rivets, screws and welds, this product can cope with almost anything and bond to pretty much everything. It can even pass through a powder coat oven to replace mechanical fixings.
INDASOL 930: this is the slow setting brother of INDASOL 900 and offers the same standard properties, but is ideal for those larger applications where setting time needs to be a little longer
INDASOL 2020: a totally clear version of 912-LX offering a near seamless bond on plastics and glass. 2020 can be used on metals, however it is better on more porous or flexible materials such as plastic, wood etc
INDASOL Rapid: the fastest setting 2 part on the market providing excellent bond strength across almost anything such as metal, plastic, glass, GRP etc.. Rapid does generate heat when curing, so it is not advised for use on thin or delicate surfaces.
Ranging from low tack (removable) through to high adhesion for heavy duty long term bonds, we have a product that can cope with all manner of substrates either internally or externally.
Tensol 12 and 70: Fast Bonding Clear Acrylic Adhesives. 12 is for internal plastic bonding and 70 is a more structural version and is ideal for external use
Tensol 2100 and 3600: Dichloromethane-free alternative to Tensol 12 and 70.
Fusion: Water Consistency for fusing Acrylic to itself. Particularly good for use when assembling acrylic POS stands or Display Cases
Cyanoacrylate: known as Superglue, an economical fast bond to many surfaces and ideal for use on PVC profiles, Wood, Metal and Plastics
SIGNBONDER: The ‘one for all’ fast fixing Adhesive and Sealant that bonds to anything and offers a high weight loading bond and can even stick straight onto wet surfaces. Available in black and white.
C27 – High Performance Silicone Sealant: supplied in black, translucent or white. Ideal for general purpose sealing
Crystal Clear: totally clear MS Polymer for High Performance Bonding and sealing glass, metal, wood and plastics. This product offers amazing clarity on glass and clear plastics
We also offer a complete range of accessories to complement these products, such as applicator guns and nozzles.
With all bonding, we recommend full surface preparation, from cleaning, abrading to priming and as such we offer Cleaners, Abrasives and Primers to suit your needs. Please visit our Cleaners and Primers page for full details.
