Permabond introduces PBT bonding grade structural epoxy adhesive
PBT bonding grade structural epoxy adhesive
Permabond Engineering Adhesives has developed a structural epoxy adhesive designed to bond PBT, a polymer that is often used to make injection-moulded parts for the automotive, electrical and medical industries.
According to the company, Permabond ES5741 has been developed to bond even the most challenging blends of PBT, offering excellent adhesion, high-strength structural bonds and high-temperature resistance.
Permabond’s ES5741 is claimed to work well on a number of filled varieties of PBT where other adhesives have shown poor adhesion characteristics.

- Enables easy bonding of PBT to other materials (such as other types of plastic, phenolic, various metals)
- Offers greater freedom of design and material selection, according to Permabond
- Can cater for a small gap (up to 0.2mm) between parts
- ES5741 is a single-part epoxy so there is no need to measure and mix
- Curing takes place when the adhesive is heated
Permabond TA435 is a structural acrylic adhesive designed primarily for bonding metals, ferrites, ceramics and some thermoplastics. The adhesive can be used in a variety of structural bonding applications thanks to its versatile capabilities.
Permabond TA430 is a toughened acrylic adhesive designed primarily for bonding metals, ferrites, ceramics, wood and some thermoplastics. It can be used in a variety of structural bonding applications.
Permabond manufactures a range of adhesive and sealant technologies suitable for use in the wind industry. This information sheet highlights products that meet the industry-specific demands of wind energy applications, including high-strength anaerobic sealing compounds, structural acrylic motor magnet adhesives and gap-filling epoxies.
Permabond polyolefin primer (POP) has been developed for the surface treatment of polyolefins, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and silicones prior to bonding with Permabond cyanoacrylate adhesives. Owing to their low surface energy, certain plastics are difficult to bond without special surface treatment. However, Permabond POP is claimed to help achieve durable bonds stronger than the substrate material.
Permabond adhesives and sealants can be used to lock bolts and to form gaskets in many types of valves, including globe valves, electric ball valves and butterfly valves.
