Adhesives for special requirements

Special requirements call for special solutions. The advantage of adhesive bonding is that there is the right adhesive for almost every application scenario. We show you how to choose the right adhesive in our WE explain video “Finding the right adhesive”. Another handy helper in making the decision is our Adhesive Finder. In order to give you an idea of the multi-faceted requirements adhesives have to meet, we would like to present three of your special types. In addition, there are countless other adhesives that are perfectly suited for their specific appliation area

Cyanoacrylate adhesive for
high-temperature applications

WEICON Contact VA 180 HT is suitable for adhesive bonds exposed to high temperatures. The areas of application are extremely varied: whether for installing and repairing lamps and lighting equipment, in the rpoduction of kitchen and electrical appliances, or on cable clamps close to running engines. The transparent cyanoacrylate adhesive can be used to bond components in gas-fired condensing boilers in heating systems, for example. A magnet encoder of a bike computer can also be bonded to the brake disc of a front wheel with the help of the VA 180 HT.

Silicone for high-temperature sealings

If in adhesive bonds or sealings exposed to heat a silicone is required instead of a cyanoacrylate, we recommend using our Silicone HT 300. WEICON HT 300 withstands temperatures from +300°C/+572°F - whether it’s on a stove, fireplace, oven, exhaust pipe, gas heater, boiler, or chimney damper. The high-temperature-resistant special silicone is suitable for bonding and sealing compensators for ventilation systems, sealing elements made of pore silicone, hobs (gas, ceran, induction), panes in ovens or fireplaces, wear-protection plates made of aluminium oxide on steel, or inspection doors for exhaust systems.
