One-Component And Two-Component Adhesives

One-component adhesives typically cure via moisture, heat, and light. So although the adhesive itself is considered one-component, they usually come with a secondary component: the external factor that affects the cure.

Two- component adhesives cure when they are combined and generally require no external factor


Features of one-component adhesiive:

  • High shear, impact, and peel strength increases joint design versatility.
  • Excellent chemical, temperature, and environmental resistance.
  • A good alternative to welding or brazing (which can help to reduce costs).

Features of two-component adhesiive:

  • Excellent chemical and environmental durability.
  • No curing equipment required,
  • Generally speaking, two component adhesives have a longer shelf life at ambient temperatures.
