World's First Re-bondable Structural Adhesive
Self-Bond™ is a new class of powder coatable structural rebondable adhesive that have high strength over broad temperature range.
Self-Bond uses a solid state bonding technique that utilizes a new class of high performance polymer — ATSP (aromatic thermosetting copolyesters), where chemical bonds are exchanged in the solid state. Self-Bond can be used as a structural adhesive with high shear strength of up to 20 MPa at 80 µm thickness.
If you would like to reconfigure the design or reuse the parts, Self-Bond allows you to take the bonded parts apart. The debonded parts can be rebonded by simple application of heat and pressure. This can be repeated multiple times without loss in strength. This enables recycling of scrap parts or worn pieces.
