The Araldite 2014 is a two-component, thixotropic, high-strength, tough, room-temperature paste adhesive with good environmental and chemical resistance and excellent corrosion resistance.
It is used for the bonding of composites of carbon fiber, kevlar, glass, etc. with metals, electronic components, GRP structures and many other components that have to cope with a higher temperature than normal or a more aggressive environment during operation. Low degassing makes this product suitable for electronic telecommunications applications and special aerospace applications.
- Resistance to temperature of 120°C
- Very resistant to water and a wide variety of chemical substances
- Union between surfaces without hanging down to a thickness of 5 mm
- Good joints to a wide variety of substrates
- Low degassing / volatile loss

TREATMENT AND APPLICATION:
The strength and durability of a joint together depend on the correct treatment of the surfaces to be joined. As a minimum, the surfaces to be joined must be cleaned with a quality degreasing agent, such as isopropanol, acetone, or registered degreasing agent to remove all traces of oil, grease and dirt.
You can buy our cleaning agent based on isopropanol as an accessory to this product.
Never use alcohol, gasoline (petroleum) or paint thinners.
The strongest and most durable joints are obtained either by mechanically abrading or by chemically attacking (degreasing) the degreased surfaces. After abrasion a second degreasing treatment should be carried out

The resin and the hardener must be mixed to form a homogeneous mixture with the help of the specific gun and the single-use nozzles.
Application of the adhesive,
The resin / hardener mixture is applied with the specific gun for bicomponent application and a spatula to the pretreated and dry joint surfaces. With a layer of adhesive from 0.05 to 0.10 mm thick, the highest shear strength of the joint will be achieved.
The pieces to be joined must be assembled and fixed as soon as the adhesive has been applied. A uniform contact pressure throughout the joint area will ensure optimum curing.
You can buy both the gun and the necessary nozzles for the application of the adhesive as an accessory to this product.
All utensils should be cleaned with hot water and soap before the adhesive residue has time to cure. The disposal of cured waste is a long and difficult task.
If solvents are used, such as acetone, for cleaning, operators should take appropriate precautions and, in addition, avoid any contact with the skin and eyes.
