What is Structural Adhesive? featured-en

Structural adhesive, as a bonding material, stands out from non-structural adhesives due to its higher strength, durability, and versatile application scenarios. Compared to other adhesives, structural adhesives offer distinctive features that make them indispensable in various industries, especially for applications like locking, sealing, fixing, bonding, and leak plugging. From aerospace to automotive manufacturing and from electronics to electrical engineering.

The extensive use of structural adhesives showcases their critical value in modern industrial applications.

Key Features of Structural Adhesives


Structural adhesives provide high-strength bonding that can withstand heavy loads, offering better durability and a longer lifespan than non-structural adhesives.

Resistance to De-bonding and Impact:

With excellent resistance to de-bonding and impact, structural adhesives are suitable for demanding industrial applications, ensuring components remain securely bonded even under extreme conditions.

Simplicity in Application:

Compared to traditional fixing methods like welding and screwing, structural adhesives are simpler to use, requiring no special equipment and enabling strong bonds between different materials.

Material Compatibility:

Structural adhesives are applicable to a variety of materials including metals, plastics, rubber, and wood, facilitating bonding between similar or dissimilar materials.

Application Range:

From industrial manufacturing to building reinforcement, structural adhesives are widely used for reinforcing prefabricated components, combining steel bars, repairs, and more, providing effective solutions.

Categories of Structural Adhesives

Epoxy Resin Adhesives:

  • Solvent-free and can cure at room temperature or with heat.
  • Provide medium to high strength, suitable for bearing heavy loads.
  • Offer excellent mechanical properties, electrical insulation, and thermal resistance.
  • Suitable for metals, ceramics, rubbers, fiberglass, and carbon fiber materials.

Acrylic (Methacrylate) Adhesives:

  • Rapid curing with high strength, achieving initial fixation in a short time.
  • Excellent corrosion resistance, water and oil resistance, heat resistance, and aging resistance.
  • Strong bonding force with better impact resistance than epoxy adhesives, suitable for metals and various non-metal materials.
