LOCTITE 403 low odor and low blooming properties for applications
Cure Speed vs. Bond Gap
The rate of cure will depend on the bondline gap. Thin bond
lines result in high cure speeds, increasing the bond gap will
decrease the rate of cure.
Cure Speed vs. Humidity
The rate of cure will depend on the ambient relative
humidity. The best results are achieved when the relative
humidity in the working environment is 40% to 60% at 22°C.
Lower humidity leads to slower cure. Higher humidity
accelerates it, but may impair the final strength of the bond.
Cure Speed vs. Activator
Where cure speed is unacceptably long due to large gaps,
applying activator to the surface will improve cure speed.
However, this can reduce ultimate strength of the bond and
therefore testing is recommended to confirm effect.
- Global Tab
LOCTITE 403 has low odor and low blooming properties
and is particularly suitable for applications where vapor control
is difficult. The product provides rapid bonding of a wide range
of materials, including metals, plastics and elastomers.
LOCTITE 403 is particularly suited for bonding porous or
absorbent materials such as wood, paper, leather and fabric .
