Sign Makers Tapes & Adhesives
INDASOL are a recognised and trusted name within the Sign Industry offering tailored bonding and fixing solutions to work with all types of Sign Making applications. Whether you are fixing channel to the rear of a sign, or stand off locators, hemming a banner or just fixing a foam sign to a wall, INDASOL have the answer.
Due to the changing raw material content and surface finishes of some substrates, it is essential that all of our adhesives and tapes should be tested by the customer to ensure substrate and performance compatibility for each application. Please contact us for any advice. We do not accept any liability for product failure.

UHB 12100C Totally Clear Pure Acrylic: for use on bare metals & plastics where an invisible bond line is required.
UHB 12110W White Acrylic Foam: exceptionally good on plastics and low surface energy substrates.
UHB21025W 0.25mm White Thermal Dissipation Tape: designed for mounting LED’s, Lights, Resistors and any other components where heat transfer is an issue.
UHB15000 Series: A range of Low Surface Energy (LSE) Bonding Tapes, designed to tackle surfaces such as Polypropylene, Polyethylene and other difficult plastics.
UHB 25HT: transfer thickness, clear, bonds metal to metal prior to powder coating up to 260ºc temperature resistance.
UHB17000 Series: A range of High Performance, High Temperature Pre-Powder Coat Bonding UHB products. Standard thicknesses are; 0.5mm and 1.0mm.
UHB18000 Series: Approved for interior and exterior component bonding in the Automotive Industry. These products can replace mechanical fixings for a faster and neater product finish.
Our UHB products are available in a range of thicknesses: 0.25mm, 1.0mm, 1.1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm. Widths from: 5mm to 400mm. We can also tailor lengths in some cases from 3M to 2000M.
UHB PR100 Easy Application Bottle: designed to make priming easy, this new bottle has a sponge application head with a self-sealing centre plunger. When pushed onto the substrate, the plunger releases the primer into the sponge head, so as you travel along your bond line, the primer is deposited exactly where required. Once released the plunger seals and the primer stops flowing. Ideal for those on site jobs where you don’t want liquid being spilt or if you want to reduce the amount of primer you are using.

SIGN MAKERS ADHESIVES
INDASOL 800: a 2 part TOTALLY CLEAR Structural adhesive. Benefitting from being flexible, non-yellowing and not creating a shadow when back lit and ideal for use in the Sign Industry when making built up letters. It will bond to most surfaces and has a fast drying curing system to help speed up production. Available in 50ml and 400ml cartridges, it exhibits a strong, flexible and long term bond across many applications.
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.
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 930LX: offers extremely high levels of bond and shear strength and works with both Snapfix and Simplefix locators. The LX means this product is also Low Exothermic, which means you can use it with confidence on substrates such as ACM, BCP and Di-Bond etc. Offered in both 50ml and 400ml tubes, 930-LX can also be a one for all structural bonding product as it will work on the same substrates as INDASOL 900.
INDASOL 2020: a totally clear adhesive 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.

SIMPLEFIX and SNAPFIX LOCATORS
SimpleFix & SnapFix Locators: are a strong and durable sign mounting locator designed to offer a flush face mounted sign that can stand off of the mounted surface by up to 25mm. They are also designed to cope with all external conditions such as Frost, UV and wind and come with a lifetime guarantee. Available with White or Black Cups, SimpleFix & SnapFix locators come in three main sizes (small, medium and large). The beauty of the locator system is that not only can you mount a sign safe in the knowledge it is there for the longterm, but you can also easily remove when there is a need for change.
SimpleFix & SnapFix locators can be bonded to all sign substrates, such as ACM, D-Bond, BCP, Wood, Metal, Plastic and Glass. INDASOL also supply tried and tested adhesives to cater for all of these applications. Our adhesives are available in a range of sizes and each product has been carefully tested to ensure optimum bonding performance across all substrates.
