March 14, 2013

Fabrico offers structural adhesives in liquid and tape formats. The adhesives are designed for bonding and joining applications with loads up to 4,000 PSI and greater.

Adaptable to automated processes, the structural adhesives can join dissimilar materials such as new metal alloys, composites, and plastics. The manufacturer recommends adhesives based on application factors such as shear, tensile, and peel strength; cure time; temperature resistance; and dielectric requirements.
