Structural Adhesives

Structural Adhesives with Superior Bonding Strength

Hernon Manufacturing Structural Adhesives are stronger than steel in this shear strength test. The steel coupon warps & fails while the adhesive bond remains unaffected.

Structural adhesives include any type of adhesive used to bond a load-bearing joint necessary for the structural integrity of a product. These joints are the most important bonds in a product because their failure is catastrophic to the product’s structure and function. As adhesive material technologies advance, manufacturers are increasingly interested in when and how to use adhesives in structural bonding and what advantages are offered over welding, rivets, and other fasteners.

As a world leader in 
structural adhesive development, Hernon Manufacturing structural adhesives feature superior bonding strength and uniquely strong impact resistance while offering key advantages such as lower weight and cost reductions when compared to traditional fastening methods.
