‘Adhesive pull through’ on Mirror finished Dibond composite material is a nightmare for every Sign Maker. However, help is now at hand. Eurobond FlexiFix® is specially designed to produce a high strength, fast curing, flexible structural bonds to just about any material combination including Mirror Finished Dibond, nylon or acrylic locators, most other metals, powder coated or wet painted metals, plastics (except for low surface energy plastics such as PTFE, Polyproylene etc), glass, woods, GRP, stone and brick. Eurobond FlexiFix® has high resistance to peel and shear forces. In our own tests nylon and acrylic locators were bonded to mirror finished Dibond and standard Dibond composite and allowed to cure. Then an 8Kg weight was suspended from each locator pulling vertically down in shear. This test started over 2 years ago! Rain, sleet, snow, frost, and high winds have not affected the integrity of the bonded joint and all locators are solid and intact. No ‘pull through’ is visible either. When cured FlexiFix® allows for movement in the joint which can be caused by thermal cycling, differential expansion between two different materials, vibration, shock, impact or mechanical forces acting on the joint.
Eurobond FlexiFix® has a work life of up to 19 minutes giving you the Sign Maker the opportunity to work on larger sign pieces without the adhesive partially curing. Handling strength at room temperature can be achieved in approximately 25-35 minutes allowing the sign to be handled or moved without causing detriment to the bond line and full cure is reached (dependent on the room temperature) between 12-24 hours.
Eurobond FlexiFix® is a new generation of adhesive technology which is now widely used in many high specification applications including vehicle body manufacture, modular building construction, automotive and marine applications and of course Sign Making! In fact, FlexiFix® offers the Sign Maker a controllable adhesive that will not leave ‘’pull through’’ marks on composite materials. FlexiFix® is available in 50ml cartridges.
