Standard Epoxies

Adhesive Epoxies

PRO-SET® Assembly adhesives are pre-thickened, two-part epoxy adhesives used for secondary bonding of laminated composites as well as steel, aluminium, cast iron, concrete, stone, and most woods.

The PRO-SET Adhesive epoxies range includes products suitable for general purpose and composite bonding as well as heavily loaded applications.

General purpose bonding

PRO-SET ADV-170 Adhesive is an extremely versatile epoxy for general purpose bonding, that is particularly popular for bonding teak decking. The resin and hardener components are thixotropic pastes and the adhesive is available in a range of pack sizes.

Composite bonding

Adhesives based on PRO-SET 175 Resin are used with Fast (273), Medium (275) or Slow (277) hardener. They are suitable for most composite bonding applications.

Heavily loaded applications

PRO-SET ADV-176/276 Toughened Adhesive delivers exceptional toughness and superior peel strength for heavily loaded applications and difficult-to-bond substrates. These include:

  • pre-impregnated fibres
  • sheet moulding compound
  • metals
  • most plastics

The PRO-SET ADV-175 and ADV-176 series of Assembly Adhesives are packaged in 400 ml 2-component cartridges and in bulk container sizes and are available in No Colour (NC) and Black (BK).

Adhesive Combined Resin/Hardener Selection

This guide compares the typical physical properties. Test specimens are cured at room temperature for two weeks unless otherwise noted. Neat epoxy samples are used for testing. These are typical values, not to be construed as specifications. Adhesives are available in two standard colours: No Colour (NC) and Black (BK).
