Methyl Methacrylate Adhesives (MMAs)
What are the differences between Bostik and Standard Methyl Methacrylate Adhesives?
Bostik MMA Feature: High Flow & Thixotropy
This video shows the differences between Bostik MMA and Standard MMA through high flow and thixotropy lab tests.
Bostik's Structural MMA SAF & FIT allows you to work with a high extrusion rate without sagging on the vertical application.
Formulated with high thixotropic properties, Bostik Structural MMA SAF & FIT ranges offer no sagging, excellent shaping, and less quantity used for gap filling.
Finally, this combination of High Flow and Thixotropic benefits improve:
- Process efficiency
Bostik MMA Feature: Higher Impact Resistance
Impact resistance of Bostik MMA without breaking is higher than Standard MMA.
Strong impact resistance improves:
Bostik MMA Feature: Improved Elongation & Fexibility
Bostik MMA has exceptional elongation property (more than 8 times higher than standard MMA) while keeping high bonding strength.
Through flexibility test, Bostik structural MMA demonstrates high flexibility that helps to avoid read through and absorb differential expension/contraction of the substrates.
The combination of elongation and flexibility improves:
- Process efficiency
Bostik MMA Feature: Visual Monitoring of the Reactivity
Bostik MMA enables fast and visual mixing control with black hardener, and polymerisation mixing control with white hardener. Bostik MMA also offers short handling time while having a long open time.
Reactivity property improves:
- Higher production speed
